Step 1: Step 1

·

Take a corrugated cardboard and turn it so the lines are placed horizontally. If you couldn’t find a corrugated cardboard; take an ordinary cardboard box and remove the upper layer carefully so the horizontal lines are visible.

Step 2: Step 2

·

Draw 1 inch wide lines on the cardboard along the cardboard length. The ideal length of a single strip should be 32 ½ inch.

Step 3: Step3

·

Cut the drawn lines carefully. You will need 11 stripes to complete this project.

Step 4: Step 4

·

Take one strip; measure ½ inch from the edge and put a mark. Carefully apply pressure on the corrugate so it appears flat.

Step 5: Step 5

·

Keep the pressed strip on a flat surface and take another strip. Paste the second strip on top of the first strip by applying glue on the marked ½ inch.

Step 6: Step 6

·

Repeat step 5 until all the stripes are pasted continuously; forming a single 352 inch long strip.

Step 7: Step 7

·

Using your thumb and forefinger roll the strips so that corrugate is facing outward as indicated in the picture.

Step 8: Step 8

·

After rolling the length of the stripe paste the edge securely; forming a tight coil.

Step 9: Step 9

·

Keep the thumb on the middle of the coil and press the coil downwards as indicated in the picture.

Step 10: Step 10

·

Using your hand shape the coil so it forms a shape of a bowl as indicated in the picture.

Step 11: Step 11

·

After you achieve the desired shape; apply glue inside the shape using a brush. Leave it aside for approximately one to two hours to dry completely.

Step 12: Step 12

Mix water and glue to 1:1 ration. Take a brush and apply

the mixture on the outside surface of the bowl. This will give the bowl a little shinning and it also makes it more steady. Leave the bowl to dry completely.

Step 13: Step 13

·

If you desired you could paint a design of your choice either inside or outside of the bowl to make it more attractive.
