1 Us­ing a ruler and pen­cil, cut a square of paper mea­sur­ing 20 x 20cm. Fold it into 1cm pleats in a con­certina style, then fold this in half. Cut a piece of dou­blesided tape and stick this along one of the half­way flaps, then join the two to­gether so you have a fan shape. Re­peat un­til you have enough fans for your gar­land (each wheel re­quires three fans). We also re­peated step one us­ing 14 x 14cm squares of paper to make smaller wheels, which means you can al­ter­nate sizes for in­ter­est. 2 Take three fans and, us­ing dou­ble-sided tape, fix to each other to form a wheel shape. Re­peat to make sev­eral wheels. Use a sin­gle hole punch to make two holes in the top of each wheel and thread through string or twine to com­plete the gar­land.
