Select your favorite color paper. Then choose a Folk Art Handmade stencil pattern to personalize your project and add a little extra awesome. Place your stencil over the paper and keep it in place with painters tape. Use a brush to start applying the paint.
Repeat the pattern until you’ve covered the entire piece of paper. Let all of this dry. Now, fold the paper in half lengthwise.
Using scissors or paper trimmers, make 1-inch cuts into the fold of the paper.
Once you’ve made the cuts, wrap and connect the opposite ends of the paper. Use Craft glue to glue the ends together.
