Origami Basket with Duck

My dear friend is still in the hospital. I try to visit her every other day and I try to stamp something to bring her every time. She loves to stamp, so she has been very touched by all the hand-stamped cards she has received from her friends. Yesterday, I saw this cute little duck and I just knew that it would have to be hers. Besides stamping, my friend and I love to duck watch. I hope this little ducky will cheer her up.

If you would like to make your own origami basket, please check out my Origami Easter Basket Tutorial. This basket is really fast to make once you know how and requires very little adhesive. I used a 10" x 10" piece of Greenhouse Gala DSP to make the basket. The handle is about 10-1/2" long.
