## Introduction: Paper Side Table

Make yourself a side table using paper!

## Step 1:

I used an old book for this. Cut off the pages and make them into strips.

## Step 2:

Roll the strips, so as to form a circle made of them. I did mine about 20cm in diameter. Hot glue it to a tray and the top of the table is ready.

## Step 3:

Cut the leaves into four pieces and start making strips again to use for the table base.

## Step 4:

And now the tricky part. I made small triangles for the base of my table. You can make circles as an alternative! Here we go...count the perimeter of the circle and divide it by 10( i used 20 triangles, alternating them up and down). I made each triangle side 4.9 cm, calculating that their top would occupy some space to their joinings. So...if you want to try that and want 20 triangles, like i did, divide your perimeter by 10 and add a little something to your result for the place each triangle meets another. Sorry if this sounds complicated! (To be honest maths and i don't get along, my other half did the calculations!). I started adding rows until i reached the desired height! As you add rows you must careful to make a straight column, mine isn't that much !Never mind though!

## Step 5:

Spray paint it any color you like and your unique furniture is ready! http://bisozozo.blogspot.gr/2012/07/diy-side-table.html .
