i really like how these boxes turned out.
i made rolls out of magazine paper.
first i cut one page into 3 parts
then i rolled each strip diagnolly and end it with a bit of glue. make as many rolls as u like!
then i cut out a square cardboard base
then stuck 4 rolls in the square outline (cut the length of roll as required)
then stick 2 opp rolls in alternate layers
repeat till satisfied!
pls post comments KINDA TUTORIAL KINDA LONG WINDED
Alright here we goes!
pick any magazine of your choice! tear out the pages! rip the book apart! go on! you know you want to!
approximately cut each page into 3 longitudinal parts...which would look like this
yes it is cosmo that i have destroyed
make your choice of weapon! ok in this pic i've used a knitting needle size 10 (bear with country differences please) but try to use some kind of rod that's really really thin
place it at a slight angle at one corner of the paper. now we begins to roll!!
slowly!! (till u get a hang of it)
continue to roll till almost the end. then grab your trusty gluestick and apply on edge like so
excuse strange hand configuration as i was trying to balance my cam
and now! we remove the roll! (by the way i forgot to mention earlier DO NOT ROLL PAPER TOO TIGHT or else you will not be able to remove it)
yay! now add to ever growing pile of happy rolls! and admire!
it's really pleasant to look at all the rolls together and play with them! the best part is you can do it in your spare time like just a couple of rolls in a couple of minutes, and store them for your amazing future projects!!! yay!!!
since i'm click happy this here is another box i made, that i TRIED to weave in some strange fashion. but hey it looks good to me!
oh and don't forget to put the cover back on your gluestick!!! hehehe!ENJOY!
