STEP 1)

Take two pieces of colored paper about 8×12 cm and fold them in half (where the scissor is) before rounding the edge on the top. Cut several slots 2/3 of the way up from the bottom on both halves.

STEP 2)

Weave the two sides together as shown. This isn’t as difficult as it seems. Weave the strips through each other by “opening” and closing” them.-


Take a green strip and “open” the first loop. Then pull a red strip through. Now open the same red strip and pull the next green strip (closed) through.
