Doilies are fun, decorative crochet crafts-but I am teaching you to create them with paper.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
-One pair of scissors for cutting the paper
-One sheet of paper
Step 2: Prepping Your Paper
First, fold the paper in half. Fold the paper in half again.
Step 3: Cutting the Patterns.
Here's my pattern, but you can do pretty much anything with this. First, cut a diamond in the center. Add a triangle and three slits on each side. Cut the edges into a circle if you want. Cut the corners and fold the paper in half again. Cut a triangle. Cut a slit on either side of the triangle and unfold your doily.
Step 4: The Final Product
If you don't like how it turned out, you can cut another one. If it seems too simple, then you can just re-fold it and cut some more.
