Step 1: Step 1. Materials
Step 2: Step 2. Making the Strips
Tear a page from a magazine. Cut off a slip of paper of about 3 centimetres. Fold the slip of paper three times so that you obtain a folded slip of paper of 1 centimetre. Unfold the slip of paper and put glue in between and fold it again. Repeat this process until you have a reasonable amount of slips of paper.
Step 3: Step 2. Making the Triangles
Now you can start making little triangles of the folded slips. First draw a isosceles triangle that you can use as a standard (the size of the triangle can be determined by yourself). Take a slip of paper and fold it in the same size as the triangle that you have drawn. Fix it with the glue pistol and fix two other slips of paper around the triangle. So for every triangle you use three slips of paper. Repeat this process until you have a reasonable amount of little triangles.
Step 4: Step 3. Building the Bowl
The fruit dish is built up out of little triangles. You begin with a basis of three triangles that are positioned flat on the foundation. From the basis you slowly make the fruit dish bigger and bigger.You glue the triangles together with the glue pistol. In order to get a dish shape every triangle is to be glued a bit higher. The curve of the fruit dish as well as the size of it can be determined by yourself.
Step 5: Step 5. Sealing the Bowl
Now the fruit dish only is to be treated with a sealer.
Step 6: Step 6. Finished Bowl
Lots of fun with your fruit dish !
