Four strip paper plait tutorial

Hello All,

I apologize for the BAD BAD quality of my four strip paper plait tutorial last time where there was less "plait" and more my hand in the tutorial! LOL! I promise to position my camera better next time onwards! So, here goes, once again:

As Sonia pointed out, people with slow Internet connection couldn't view the tutorial, so here are the snapshots:

Take four paper strips and glue 3 of them perpendicularly at the end of one. Now fold the one on your right (I am right handed, so this came naturally, maybe, you can fold on the left if you are a leftie) away from you at 45 degrees. It will come under the other two strips stuck to the first strip.

Now, take it from under the strip to its left and over the next one, like a wicker basket weave.

Now, fold the one on the left "towards" you at 45 degrees and take over all the strip, repeat the wicker basket like weave with the strip on the right.

This is how it will start looking.

Keep repeating for the length you want.

The plait will begin to look something like this :-)

At the end, glue all the strips and Voila! You're ready! :-) You can extend the plait by gluing more strips, depending on how long a plait you need.

I hope it is visible properly this time :-)

Happy Quilling :-)

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding........:-)
