Only the ends of the paper strips are fixed with some glue, so that the resulting shapes remain. You can either cut the strips yourself or buy them from the craft shop – it is recommended that they are in different colors to make the result even more interesting. There are so many ways to roll the paper – a pencil, with your fingers, with the help of scissors. The finished figures can be hung up as well as stuck to a sheet of paper – so you can for example make a wonderful greeting card for the birthday of a friend or family member itself.

With paper you can also make fabulous gift wrappings that would make your lover happy. For example, you could try to fold a box. The small paper boxes are actually versatile – except for small gifts, they are also suitable for small things, such as the paper clips on your desk or the nails and screws in the garage. The easiest way is to print an Internet template for free, cut out the boxes and fold them at the markers, and finally decorate them with glitter, beads, sequins and ribbons.
