Okay, I finally had a chance to finish it, now that the battery in the camera is charged...

And, just a note: If this doesn't help at all, let me know and I'll delete this- I put the pics on the server for my website, and I don't know how much room I have, so if these aren't needed I can delete them. If they are needed, I'm happy to leave them here!

So here goes, and I hope it makes sense...I realized when I was halfway done that I should have used 2 contrasting colors of paper, instead of the nearest catalog in the recycling bin Wink And I apologize if I am stating anything that is obvious to most...

First, there are two kinds of strips: open (not glued together) and closed (glued together).

When you weave each section...

You need to put open strips on each edge, with the open edge facing out...

Then you need to take another open strip and glue it over the tabs on the side of one piece that you need to join. Glue it so that the tabs are inside the strip and the folded dge faces out. This makes a "tongue."

Next, on one side of the piece that you need to join, you need to fold the tabs over and glue them into the open edge of the outermost strip. The strip should remain "open." This creates a "groove."

Then, you take the piece with the "tongue" and insert it into the "groove" of the other piece and glue it into place. You'll end up with a bigger piece (mine isn't very neat, because I was trying to do it quickly...).

I hope that this helps!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
