Paper Weaving ~ Simple Technique

What you need: 

coloured paper or card stock, 

Put a sheet of paper on end in front of you.
Cut parallel stripes from the bottom to the top 
leaving a margin of about 1 in uncut. This is the main sheet.

Take another sheet of paper in another colour and cut it into stripes.

This sheet should be cut horizontally 
so that the stripes are as long as the main sheet is broad.

Put these stripes alternately over and under the stripes 
of the main sheet as if you were weaving.

Apply a little glue to the edges so that the stripes stay at their place.

Repeat applying the stripes until the sheet is completely covered with stripes.
