Total Time: 25 minutes

  1. Cut off the Strips
    Multi Colored Paper Strips

    First cut a 1 cm wide strip from the long side of the paper. As a result, you should get 4 strips of the same length, but different colors.

  2. Glue Two Strips Together
    Red and Green Stripes

    Take 2 of them (in our case, red and green) and glue them together at right angles.

  3. Add a Blue Stripe
    Three Glued Strips

    Add a blue stripe and stick it on the green one (next to the red one).

    Four Glued Strips

    Glue the yellow stripe to the red one and weave it under the blue stripe.

  5. Start Weaving the Future Bookmark
