I used a few of these twirly thingies in the March VT message and wanted to show you how I made them.
Start by cutting strips of paper. The one below is about 2x12 inches wide. I needed two 2x12 strips. Then fold them like a fan.
Once you are done folding, stick them together.
Then connect the remaining sides.
Gather one of the ends into the middle and stick a dab of glue inside, holding it together till it dries.
If you want, stick something over the middle part, and you are done!
For the smaller ones, I used 1x12 strips and it only took one.
I can think of a million things to use these for...have you ever made twirly thingies? What did you use them for? And does anyone know what they are really called?!
