Yup its paper weaving Smile It was pretty easy...I took a piece of my 12x12 cardstock and folded it in half...then measured 1 inch from the opening of the fold and drew a line the whole way across...this is your guide for how far you will cut to...then I just took a pair of my scissors that allows me to cut designs and cut from the folded end up to the line i drew...you do this the whole way across the paper....then I made about 1.5-2 inch strips using some of my other cardstock and just weaved it in and out..i thought it looked pretty cool...initially I did the blue on black background but it looked too harsh so i ripped it apart and started over...btw if i was too confusing here are instructions that helped me...
