    I would love to try this. Not sure what kind of rope and I want to paint the whole basket to match my décor. Is this acceptable?

      Clever! Rope is very expensive in the U.K. 😟

    Why parchment paper? in my neck of the woods, parchment paper is expensive. Couldn't u use any other paper, or even no paper for this project?
