Use the scoring tool to mark lines on a strip of paper, across its long side (or width), approximately 1/8" apart. Note: It’s important to score handmade paper before folding, because otherwise it may crack or fold poorly.
Make accordion folds along the scored lines.
Thread a needle, make a knot and pierce the middle of folded strip. Pull the thread through, tie a knot and cut the thread.
Open up both ends of the folded stack like a fan. Make a circle by using double-sided tape to attach the folded edges.
Position one end of a paper clip on the back of the pleated circle. Secure it with double-sided tape, covered with a flat paper circle that is a bit smaller than the pleated circle.
Use paper punches and scrap paper to create decorative shapes or cut them freehand with scissors.
Decorate the front by gluing on punched-out shapes and/or stamping with a word or image.
