Here is my 2nd tutorial on newspaper weave. :-) ...here Ii would show you the single , double ,and twist weave.
I should have started with the pencil holder ( or vase ...if you stick a jam bottle inside!) in the first tutorial...as it's very simple and is a great beginners project and is great for school craft projects too!
I would not go into how to make the rods as i have covered it already...and i don't want to bore you to death with the overload of pictures! :-D
but for those of you who missed the first tutorial...go here ...my advise is after making the rods follow pencil holder project...and them move to others :-)

Step 1: Pencil Holder / Vase

Your would need approximately 13 rods for this...that is if you are doing a small circle...for a  pencil holder/ vase.
Cut 2 cardboard circles and 1 paper circle the same size
cut 1 paper circle larger than the above circle.
glue 6 rods on one circle as picture...then glue the other circle on the rods...glue the larger paper circle on the cardboard and flip over
cut slits on the large circle and paste it on...please follow the pic...
now once you have finished paste the remaining small circle on top to neaten.
glue one rod to one of the sticks...
now simple follow steps and weave...
to to the square it's the same concept. only if you move the rods further away the mouth of the vase becomes wider.....and of course closer to the mouth the gap closes :-)
when the rods get  short...glue a new rod inside the opening
flip it over and move it till you feel it's in level as it's still flexible.
now paint to your hearts content!
u r a fantastic artist
wow! absolutely brilliant..Love the creativity..very nice tutorial..thank you for sharing :)
I have been wanting to try this project for a long time, and I've finally saved up enough newspaper! For the newspaper rack, do you wrap wire in every rod, or just the first 11 rods you use for the base? <br>Thanks!
Finally!!! I'm so happy you are going to try this....please post a picture :-) <br>you wrap only the first 11 rods which you use for the base. :-D good luck !
Congratulations on being a finalist in the fiber arts contest!! Good luck to you! I'm so excited you made the finals!!
Thanks! I'm happy about it too :-)
Congratulation in coming to the finals.I voted for you as you published.I love your paper work.I copied your paper rod method and used a barbeque spears to roll the paper for my fiber art which is also in the finals.he !he!
Thanks! I'm happy that you found a way to do an instructable using this method. And I'm glad that you came to the finals...I find your instructable very useful....In fact I plan on making matching rings like that so I may place it on my table and then serve hot meals without fear :-). <br>Anyway...this time I plan on keeping a lid on my expectations :-D That way I wouldn't be disappointed.. :-),, congratulations to you too on making the finalist and I hope you win a prize.
Awesome as usual!!! I LOVE IT!!!! love the rustic look
oh...it's nice to hear from you...i was wondering what happened to you....wondering if you were affected by the storm :-). The pencil holder was just for you since you asked :-D
aww you're sweet! I know I miss chatting and miss being on here! I have been SUPER busy going to college..taking full time classes..picked one that has a teacher who is highly demanding, giving a ton of homework. Almost done for a while though. How have you been?
I've been great thanks! Studying again? that's great! I've noticed that as adults we tend to take our studies much more seriously than as kids...therefore doing better! It's awesome you being able to do it while being a mom...which is tough without help. Good luck in your studies and I hope you do well in your future.
Way better then any upcycled paper weaved basket I've made. And I think easier too!
yes it is... :-) especially the twist weave is soooo easy. I was wondering if to do anther totally different ornamental bowl with newspaper for the reuse...only wondering if people will get sick and tired of the newspaper basket ...what do you think yes do it or no...toooo boring??
Yes do it. I love newspaper baskets!
Remarkable work yet again, and such a great deal of time put into it! How far have you tested the strength of your weave? Have you attempted a stool or a 'modern' curved chair? I really do think that you have indeed found another great way to recycle paper, and I can see it used even for structural purposes, but it may need a support of something else too. I'm voting :D
Thanks for the vote! Well Once the main frame is done with metal or wood and covered with paper...and say for a chair you put across a few more supports like i have done for the rack...it seems pretty strong...and of course you have to varnish it. A relative of mine who is totally into it has done it for the back of the chair as a support and it seems pretty strong. :-)
Marvellous!!!... (Y) <br>Voted for u!..... :D <br>
Oh thank you so much ;-)
nice ible... voted..
Thanks loads!
OH PS, I voted for ya :)
Thanks!...it's now up in the fiber contest too! yey :-)... <br>If you make the rods...and say help end it with the tucking...a 5 yr old can do it...:-) that is the pencil holder...my son in my experimental student! :-)
This is fantastic! I'm not sure my little people at school could do this BUT I work for a summer camp as well as their art director and our older kids could totally do this! Well done!!
