I used Melissa Frances paper and cut 3 strips to a little less than an inch each. I left the length at 12 inches.
Then crumple the paper really well.
When you have all three crunpled you are going to be ready to braid.
I used glue dots to stick the ends together.
When you have them together then you can start braiding.
Since this paper was only printed on one side I made sure that my braid stayed put with only the print showing. But I think it would be neat to use a double sided sheet for even more colors!
I find that I scrunch as I move down the braid - when you finish use gluedots to close the braid.
If you ever try this please post I would love to see!
Have a wonderful weekend!
