e. How much shred do I need to fill a basket?
That's a tough question to answer as there are very many different ways to use shred. Some people use it to line the base of the basket or container while others just sprinkle a little over the top once the basket has been assembled. A good rule of thumb would be to estimate how many handfuls of shred you will use per basket. You should get around 30 small handfuls of shred per pound.
