I've always wanted to know how to do this- but as it was, my Mom signed me up for Brownies rather than Boy Scouts- thus I honed in on sewing patches rather than tying knots. But now with this easy tutorial, you too can be a master-knotter. Imagine the possiblilities! Hairbands, scarves, earrings- your creativity is the limit!

Just cut along the solid lines, fold along the dotted lines, put some glue on the shaded flaps, stick them together and there you go...

The parts stay bonded through a strong contact adhesive that can hold up to 20 kg.
I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor.
