|Can you tell I like girly magazines?|
First I tore out colorful pages of the magazine that I liked.
I was feeling inspired by the pastels in this clinic ad and was also into the black and orange pages in spirit of Halloween.
Next, I cut the pages into strips. I ended up with 8 strips per page, so 16 strips total.
The rest is mostly just a folding and manipulating game.
Take the first strip and fold one end over to create a loop.
Follow the same step with the other end the strip creating almost a figure 8.
Add a second strip to the back. Always place the color you want to see on the finished product out or away from you.
Fold each end of the second strip in the same manner as the first. Then add a third strip and repeat the same steps.
Once finished this process, I ended up with something that looked somewhat like a star...
I then took the second star I had created and simply sat it inside of the first star, matching the center points together.
My final project turned out like this...
I got a little bow happy after my first success and created quite a few of them! It really hardly took any time at all once I got the hang of handling the paper.
