Step 1: Checkerboard

6X6 paper (15 cm x 15 cm)

Make a grid on the paper. On the top, bottom and sides draw a mark on 2 inches and then mark a line on 4 inches.

Step 2: Cutting

For the middle top and bottom squares, cut two triangles.

The out side squares into thirds. Avoid the cross in the middle.

Step 3: Attaching

When the outside squares are cut into thirds, take the inner strands and glue together.

Do this to all strands on both sides.

Step 4: Attaching the Triangles

Once all strands are glued together, glue the triangle onto the glued strands. Do this for both sides.

Step 5: The Circles

Cut 2 circles.

Fold the circles in half, and glue them onto the glued strands and triangles.

Step 6: Finished Products

If you like you could glue a handle on.
