3. Make some notches at 3 cm intervals on each end of the object.
4. Fold in the notches towards the middle.

Wrapping with the help of a cup

2. Cut out the curved part at the top of the cup.
3. Cut some notches all measuring 3 cm, up to the line that you’ve drawn.
4. Fold down the notches that you have just cut.
5. Use the string to make a circle around the cup from top to bottom and then tie it into a knot.
6. Cut what’s left of the string.
