5 Cardboard boxes
Masking tape
Scissors and ruler
Felt or fabric
Decorative paper

STEP 1

Measure and cut your cardboard in identical 4 inch strips. Cut so that the ridges in the cardboard are going horizontally across the strips.

STEP 2

Start rolling the cardboard in your hands and bending at each corrugation; the cardboard will start to curl naturally.

STEP 3

Tightly wind one strip into a circle and tape to close. This will be the core of your round.

STEP 4

Add a new piece and secure with two pieces of tape. Choose which side will be the top and make sure that side is always even.

STEP 5

Keep adding! Tape each piece right next to the end of the last piece and keep the coiling tight.

STEP 6

Cut your decorative paper and wrap it around the outside. Tape to close.

STEP 7

Trace the finished round onto fabric and cut out the circle. Tape or glue to the bottom.
