Step by step guide

  1. A piece of A4 color paper is your base. Grownups should use a craft knife to cut the A4 paper lengthways (the longer side), into half inch strips, but stopping 1 inch from either end.
  2. Cut a mixture of other color paper, newspapers & circulars into half inch wide long strips.
  3. Weave each different strips one at a time, over and under the strips of the base paper.
  4. Alternate the strips so that the next one goes under where the previous one went over.
