What you need:
- A snap-off blade knife
- A stapler
- A ruler
- A pencil
Supplies / ingredients:
- Magazine page or any other paper material
- Double-sided tape
First, be sure you have all needed tools and supplies at hand :) Time to start!
Take your magazine and cut out a page that you like the most. Then place it vertically on a table.
Grab a pencil and mark off nine 3/4-inch-long (2 cm) sections at the top and the bottom of the page.
Cut the page lengthwise into nine strips
Now, cut the strips into following heights: three 11″ strips (28 cm) ; three 10″ (26 cm) strips ; two 9″ strips (23 cm) ; one 4″ strip (10 cm).
Fold each strip of paper in half to mark the exact centre.
Twist each strip to form a loop at end and staple it in the center.
Make a circle out of the smallest 4″ (10 cm) strip.
This is how your strips will look like after twisting and stapling.
Layer the three longest pieces on top of each other. Space them evenly and join together with a double-sided tape.
Do the same with another group of shorter pieces. Try to make it as evenly as you can for the best effect.
Finally, stick the loop into the center.
