Who wants to buy all that stuffing for the bottom of your basket? It's a waste of money that immediately gets thrown away. Here's how to make your own from scraps of paper you already have laying around the house! Wrapping paper scraps and even newspapers work well for this purpose.
|Cut a strip of paper about 2 inches wide.|
|Fold the paper in half lengthwise.|
|Cut notches perpendicular to the long edge, almost all the way to the end.|
|Flip the paper around and cut notches going the other way in between each of the original notches. Remember to not cut all the way through!|
|Cut the entire length of the folded edge.|
|Gently pull on the ends to loosen the pieces.|
|Rip or cut the long strips into smaller pieces and throw them in the basket!|
