this is my first post in here
. Thus I hope you enjoy what I made. A while ago I found this bag http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45643.0
and I thought that with little changes the technique could work out on bigger boxes as well. Last weekend i finished the box in the middle row to the left. Here is the link to the picture:
(Unfortunately I'm not yet allowed to post pictures
Making the box was easy. I cut old newspaper into stripes of 7cm (2.75inches) and folded them into thirds. To make the stripes I glued the paper on clear tape until I reached the desired lenght. The excess ot the tape is glued on the back of the stripe thus the paper is covered compleately by clear tape. All which is left is to actually weave the box.
