1. Take a paper and cut 9 strips of size 1.5cm*10cm from it. Cut 9 more strips from a different coloured paper. Also, cut two small circles of a 1.5cm diameter of the same colour.
2. Fold all the strips in half along the longer side.
3. Take a bead and insert a thread through the bead.
4. Insert the thread (both ends) through the eye of a needle.
5. Knot the two ends of the thread together. Now, insert one of the two paper circles through the needle.
6. Now, insert one corner of the paper through the needle. Insert all the papers such that different colours are next to each other.
7. Now, start by inserting the other end of the top most paper through the needle.
8. Insert all the other papers as shown, inserting the needle, bringing each paper to the top one after the other.
