I am happy to make a special basket just for you. You can decide the materials, colors, shape and size. I can to work with you to figure out what combination will perfectly fit in your room. Please contact me so that we can start our planning.
How many colors? I usually use three colors as this shows the 3 dimensional look the best, but other patterns can be generated with two colors, or with more. “Confetti” baskets contain many colors arranged randomly.
Which colors? While the colors you choose are a matter of personal preference, it is imporant to consider their “value”. To compare values, look at the colors in black and white. If you are looking for the 3 dimensional look, then you will want to choose three colors that have different “values”. If you choose colors with similar values (such as all pastels), any pattern will be more subtle.
You can choose among these shapes for your basket (see examples in my shop):
- Rectangular (ribbon only)
- Triangular with slanted sides
- Triangular with vertical sides
- A double wall basket with a stiff liner embedded in the base (ribbon only)
- Hexagonal with a handle (ribbon only)
- Hexagonal with a cover (ribbon only
1/4″, 3/8″, 5/8″ ribbon. (The thinner ribbons produce sturdier baskets)
1/2″, 1″ metal.
The size of the basket depends on the number of strips that are used in the base. The physical size of the basket depends on the number of strips and their width.
You can choose a shallow or deep basket, please specify the height in inches.
