Weaving paper strips used in a new and exciting way. They are assembled on a wire with beads and crimp beads.
How to do it
Cut four or more weaving paper strips to the desired length (min. 15cm long).
Cut a hole through the middle with a hand punch and also cut a hole at each end of the strip, approx. 0.5cm from ends.
Thread a silver bead onto a piece of wire – thread both ends of the wire through a large bead or more.
Now thread both ends of the wire through the middle hole of the strips. Thread on a new bead and a crimp bead and squeeze.
Cut off the excess wire – put a crimp bead and a bead onto the wire. Adjust according to the length of the strip and squeeze.
Now put the ends of the strips alternately onto the wire.
Finish with one or more beads as well as a crimp bead – squeeze. You may vary the length and number of strips as well as the number of beads and amount of decoration.
