You will need

  • 4 Boxes of theater candy (Keep in mind you are going to want pairs of boxes the same size so your basket will come out even. )

  • A piece of cardboard for the bottom.
  • Hot glue gun & hot glue.

I lined up the boxes for a dry run to find the best way they would fit together. I then hot glued them together. I cut a piece of cardboard and hot glued it along the bottom. I then took a nerd rope and hot glued it to the inside for the handle.
