Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut out a total of 18 strips of paper measuring 6"x¾". Use at least two colors or patterns (nine of each color).

Step 2 Punch a hole at the ends of the strips at ¼" from the short edges. There should be two holes per strip (one on each edge).

Step 3 Alternating the patterns and colors facing one way, string the chenille stem through the holes of the strips from one end. Take the other end of the strips and, starting from the bottom, string the other end of the strip through the top part of the chenille stem with the pattern or color facing out.

Step 4 Continue to string the strips through the top part of the wire chenille stem until you create  a ball.

Step 5 String the Bead Landing™ craft beads on both ends of the chenille stem up against the ball to secure the paper in place.

Step 6 Create a hook or loop at the top with the remaining portion of the chenille stem, and twist the bottom into a curl.
