2. Take 2 strips and place them on a flat surface, to make a cross. Apply glue on the overlapped center of both strips. Add on the remaining strips, placing them criss-crossed over the previous ones.

3. Take the open end of one of the strips and glue it to the center to create a loop. Continue with the remaining strips one by one so that all the open strips are now replaced with loops.
