Take a skewer and roll your paper around it until you end up with a little roll of paper. You’ll want to have the color you want showing at the end to be face down while you are rolling. This makes sure it shows up in your finished frame.
When you get to the end of the strip, add a little glue to the end of the paper and wrap it the rest of the way around. This will hold the paper in place. You can use hot glue for this stage too, but we found it easier to work with the glue stick. Plus, it’s easier to get onto the paper and isn’t super messy if it gets on your fingers. If you do get any on your fingers, just wash it off and keep rolling.
Once the paper is secure, pull the roll off of the skewer. If the ends of the roll aren’t even, just pinch both ends of the roll to even them out.
