Step 1: Cut Your Construction Paper

Cut your construction paper 6" x 6" or 15.2 cm x 15.2 cm.

Draw a grid on your paper, scoring (on each side) 2" and 4" or 5.1 cm and 10.1 cm.

On each side, cut your 2" and 4" (5.1 cm and 10.1 cm) scores. Only do this on 2 sides, the sides must be opposite of eachother.

Step 2: Cut Center Flap

Cut center flaps into triangles on the same sides as you cut the flaps (last step). Also, cut the flaps equally into thirds.

Step 3: To Create the Weaved Look...

Start with the first strip, on each side; bring the two sides together and glue.

Continue to layer the next strips and same for the last set of strips.

When you have layered each strip together, glue the triangle over them.

Step 4: Make a Handle

Cut another piece of construction paper with your desired measurements and glue to the triangle on both sides.
