Step by step description of the manufacture of the box.
1. Directly weaving the casket will be made from newspaper tubes, which will require approximately 200-220 pieces. In order to get a newspaper tube, you need a newspaper or magazine, using a regular knife, cut across the page into strips whose width is about 5 cm. If you plan to have tubes of darker colors, you can use a newspaper.For tubes of light and bright colors, you should use newsprint, because when painting can appear through the letters.

2. In order for the tubule to be long and neat, the needle should be used as thin as possible. On the edge of the newspaper strip fits the needle at an angle of 35-40 degrees. The smaller the angle, the thinner the tube. From thin tubes, the product turns out neater and more gentle. Tightly pressing the edge of the paper to the spoke, you need to twist the tube. The remaining upper edge to coat with white glue and tighten the tube to the end. Needle pull out. The straw is ready.
