Step 1: You Will Need

Pieces of paper, size is up to you, scissors, tape.

Step 2: Step 1

Line up the pieces of paper together. I had cut up my 3 pieces of paper in half to make 6 pieces of paper...because I'm being ECO!

Step 3: Step 2

Put some tape on to hold them together.

Step 4: Step 3

cut out a small rectangle out of  the pieces of paper, this makes a handle, SEE?

Step 5: Step 4

Now, cut strips out of the paper, leave about 2 cm from the top.
if you accidentally cut the paper in half (like me), put more tape on! 

Step 6: Step 5

So far, your sweep is flat, and thats useless. to make it useful, fold the strips up a bit to make it all fuzzy and messy!
And thats it!
