    Ooh that looks fun. I'll have to try it with strips of quilling paper when I get a chance.

      Fascinating! I nearly didn't bother to watch it when I saw it was five minutes (I get impatient and bored very quickly!), but I'm glad I did. Another thing to add to the list to try :-)

          I am going to cut some strips of wrapping paper in a while, and have a go...I'm wondering if you HAVE to do teh 3-D stuff on both sides. I want to see if it can just be done on teh first side and then leave the other side flat, so I can apply them to my hand folded gift boxes....it would look super!

            Very nice Susan, and thank you.
            I got lost about halfway, (in between chores at the moment) but I will definately watch again to learn how to do it.
            It would be great for gift boxes as you say, especially at Christmas time. I think I might have a go with fancy ribbon then.

              i would watch it if my stoopid doofus of a computer would play along it just won't do video's and gets all jerky and stop/starts. It's an old MacBook that can't take any more memory and shouts at me when I push it along a little...

                  I reckon that would work well

                      Cut your strips .5 inch or .75 inch wide, and 22.75 inches long...the half inch strips make a star two inches wide, and the three quarter wide strips make a three inch wide star.

                          My first attempt is pretty crumpled and rumpled - my paper is too stiff. I used my paper cutter and thought all strips would be even, but apparently the paper moves a little as I slide the razor, so they are not the same width all the way along the strip, darn it. It makes a difference!!

                            Phooey. Okay, tomorrow, I am going to town, so I will buy some lightweight paper and give it another go....who'd have thought it would be so confusing....at least for me... =P

                              That's really cool. I have never been good at folding a piece of paper down the middle, so don't think I could do anything as fab as that.
