Mini Tobacco Basket DIY - Christmas Placecard

This past weekend I went out for a much needed girls night out. Honestly, I feel like my battery has been recharged. We chatted and caught up on eachother's lives, we laughed, ate good food and danced - what a fun weekend full of holiday sparkle!
In addition to having fun this weekend, I also thought about the #12monthsofdiy challenge and what I wanted to do for #novemberpaper. For the past few months I've wanted to make a full size Tobacco Basket for my living room so I thought why not make a few prototypes out of paper and use them as a placecards at my Christmas dinner. So here it is, my mini tobacco basket Christmas placecard holder (or you could use it as an ornament).

Secure with hot gun (or regular glue - I got very frustrated with the hot glue half way through).

Fold the strips up and glue a strip around the parameter.
