Weaving Paper

I am showing you how to paper weave in a journal. This can be made on a larger separate paper using the same steps.

Supplies Needed

  • Journal
  • Cardstock paper
  • Extra paper from shaving cream project see previous post
  • Glue
  • Washi tape
  • Cutting board or x-acto knife or scissors

Steps

Cut the paper and then strips half an inch or less. Then decide which papers are going to be horizontal. Then glue the top of the horizontal paper to the journal page you will only glue the very top parts of the paper do not glue the entire horizontal strip of paper.

Then add washi tape at the top to secure that portion that was glued down. Then you will start your weaving. Pick another strip of paper and start weaving under and over you’re going to alternate. When you get to the end pick up another paper and then weave again but alternate from what you did previously. So if you started under for your first weaving strip then your second strip will start with over.

Once you are finished you can cut the edges of the remaining paper strips or you could fold them into the journal page. This would be your choice of what you want to do.
