    • Mark lines 7mm apart on opposite margins of the cardboard

    • Using a scissor, make small cuts along each of these lines as shown


    Photo showing how you did the cutting - the marking at equal distances, the cutting using scissor....

    • Take an ice cream stick and make a small hole near one end of the stick.

    • Insert the satin tape through the hole

    • Next, take out the given woolen thread

    • Take wool and fix it with a tape on on one side of the cardboard.

    • Weave it vertically across the slits going over and under the slits, creating an array of parallel lines


    Break down these steps and add more photos. Show the tactivity to someone who doesn't know anything about it and test if he/she understands. I know about it but, I still can't make out how exactly it has been done.

    Also, we need to show how it would look after the weaving is finished.

    • Take the ice cream stick with satin tape and weave it horizontally across the wool going over and under the wool.

    • When you finish weaving along one length, turn back and weave the 2nd row and so on in a zigzag fashion

    • Continue weaving till you cover the cardboard piece with satin

    • Make sure the satin tape is secure in the ice cream stick

    • The woolen lines need to be evenly spaced

    • Be neat while weaving; don't leave gaps and do not overlap

    • Carefully observe the weaving pattern. Can you relate this pattern to your clothes?

    • Is weaving always crisscross? Or can you think of any other pattern which is robust?
