Cut out a cardboard circle: Place the cardboard flat on your work surface, then place the tin on top face down. Trace around the tin with a pencil to create an outline. Then use the scissors to cut out the circle.
Wrap and glue rope around the tin: Apply a thin line of glue onto the tin starting from the bottom and start wrapping the rope around it, adding more glue as you go. Make sure the rope is nice and tight and follow the edge in a straight line.
Cut the excess rope and secure the ends with glue: When you’re done covering the exterior of the tin with rope, cut off the excess and secure the end with hot glue, making sure it blend nicely with the rest of the rope and doesn’t look out of place.
Glue some lace onto a piece of ribbon: The next step is to prepare a little loop handle for the lid of your rope basket. Cut out a piece of sink ribbon double as long as you want the loop to be, then cut a piece of lace ribbon the same size and glue the lace on top of the ribbon.
Glue the loop handle onto the cardboard: Take the piece of ribbon you’re prepared, gently fold it in half and spread the ends with your fingers. Make sure the loop is positioned at the center. Glue the ends flat onto the cardboard to secure the handle.
