Project Instructions

  1. Cut one 3-inch (7.5cm) diameter circle from both cardboard and paper. Glue the paper circle to one side of the cardboard circle. Let dry. With hole punch, punch a hole in the cardboard about ¼-inch (6mm) from the edge.

  2. Apply a small amount of glue to the opposite side of the cardboard.  Beginning at the center of the circle, glue yarn in desired colors in a spiral to cover the cardboard. Continue to apply glue and yarn to cover edges of the circle, then to make a border on the other side of the circle, leaving the center uncovered for the name tag. Let dry.
  3. To make the braided tie, cut three 30-inch (76cm) strands of yarn in colors of choice. Knot strands together at one end and braid. Knot remaining end. Fold braid in half. Draw fold through punched hole forming a loop. Pull ends of braid through this loop. Pull to tighten.
