Would cereal box cardboard work better?  I have a bunch of almost finished cereal boxes...
Ehmm...  Smiley You can try it out, but I think that might be a bit too thin. My next try will be with a left over of cardboard mailers from my boyfriend. It's a bit of a search between sturdyness and flexibility  Tongue

Yeah, cereal cardboard is bendy.  Maybe a sturdier cardboard base, with flexible strips of cereal cardboard to weave around?  Or bubble wrap strips woven around the cardbaord base.  I will definitely play around with this concept. Maybe I can get my stepdaughters to help, and when it's done, I can try my first photo post. (Ambitious goal setting...but getting the kids involved will be fun...)  Grin

Very good idea. I tried it with the supple mailer base but it was a disaster (or not)  Grin  Lips sealed

I swear to my cats are sitting here looking at me like "um...hello...where is MINE!" 

They are obsessed with boxes too - so great idea that I will have to steal Cheesy

Ok... I tried to do more my best on the weaving... But now the basket was to small for my kitties!  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes



Oh well, my bunny liked it  Grin I'll stop weaving cardboard for a time  Tongue Happy easter!

What nice and lovely cats you all have!!!

What's wrong with my monster? - she loves cardboard boxes too. Really loves to bite and destroy them. So I have to vacuum clean those fuzzes all the time ... or peeling them off from my socks and finding them in my shoes .... guess I will NOT make her a cardboard basket Wink

Love this idea and love the kitties and the bun!  My cat always can't leave boxes alone...he likes to rub his cheeks on the edges of them and knead the boxes with his paws.  The cats would probably still like that small one...mine would still try to fit his big tush in it.  Cute ideas!
