Step 1 – Flat the paper tubes by pressing them by hands

Step 2 – Start rolling the flatten strip in a round shape tightly. At the end, coat glue and hold for a minute so that it can get secure. You will end up something like below.

Add another flatten strip in end and keep rolling as above.

Please remember to glue the ends when ever you finish the strip rolling and let it dry completely.

Step 3 – Hold the circle between your thumb and immediate finger from both hands. Start pushing gently from down side (where your finger holding the circle) to give a shape of cap.

Step 4 – coat it with “Glue + water” solution OR acrylic varnish.

Step 5 – Now apply colour of your choice on cap and decorate as you wish with embellishments, ribbons or decorative pearls.

Trick – You can make solution of  water + acrylic varnish + colour  and paint the tubes before you start making the cap !.
