Ply-Split Lotus Basket by Linda Hendrickson, cords made from Wraphia II paper ribboncords

Learn the techniques of ply-splitting by making this ply-split basket. To order a kit for this basket with artist-made cords, detailed instructions, and step-by-step photos, please see my Kits for Ply-Split Baskets page. You can order the cords only, if you already have the instructions, or order the instructions only if you want to make your own cords.

To make the cords for this basket, I chose five colors of Wraphia II paper ribbon. I twisted the ribbon into long 4-ply cords using a Bradshaw 4-hook cordmaker attached to an electric drill, and then taped and cut the cords into the lengths needed for the basket.
