  • To make this vase you need:

  • cardboard, pen, ruler, scissors, glue, pins, newspaper, paintbrush, colors and paper tubes.

  • To make these tubes divide a sheet of newspaper in 4 parts

  • and roll using a thin needle.

  • Paint these to get colored tubes.

  • From a cardboard cut 2 squares of side 6 cm.

  • Paste one tube each at 3 corners

  • and two tubes at the fourth corner.

  • Paste the other piece of cardboard above this.

  • Use pins to keep it in place until it dries.

  • Cut a bigger square from newspaper and cut the corners.

  • Paste this using glue.

  • Cut another square and paste above this.

  • Paint it and let it dry.

  • At one of the corners we have an extra tube.

  • Bend it along the edge.

  • Then bend the next one along the edge and so on.

  • If these tubes intersect in the centre then the width remains constant.

  • If they intersect below this then the width decreases.

  • If they intersect above this then the width increases.

  • We want the width to increase so intersection point should be above centre.

  • Now we will reduce the width so intersection point should be below centre.

  • Now we want constant width so intersection point should be in the centre.

  • Apply glue for the last row.

  • Insert this last tube below the tube in front.

  • Apply glue and cut extra length of tubes.
