4. Take one end of the paper and glue it to the other end, making a ring. Do this for the 4 strips of paper. Make sure the rings are of the same size.

5. Once you have made all the strips into rings, glue the connected end to the other side. It should look like a bow. Do this for the rest of the rings. Again, make sure the folded rings are of the same size.
