Making Paper String

'HOW TO MAKE PAPER STRING' and see what pops up? I do this all the time and find loads of information. Hope this helped.

I just thought that I'd post the picture of the paper string project I'd like to try. The picture, along with the instructions, can be found in a book titled The Art of Jewelry: Paper Jewelry; written by Marthe Le Van and published by Lark Books. Definitely worth a look!
