How to

2 Cut the longitudinal direction of the A4 size design paper to about 1 cm in width. Then cut it in three equal parts. Apply glue to the edge of the paper and make a loop. Then chain them as shown in the image.
3 Cut the design paper into 4 x 4 cm squares and pile them. Place a thread in the middle of the square paper and staple them as shown in the image. Then Fold in half and spread them out.
It would look better if you print a design on both sides of the paper.

5 Fold the square in one fourth as shown in the image. Cut the paper at intervals of about 1 cm leaving the bottom space untouched.
6 Unfold the paper. Apply glue on the diagonal stripes parts as shown in the image and attach them alternately.
Then turn over and attach the remaining part. Attach a thread to the upper part of the paper.
7 Attach a thread to the Tanzaku. 。
You can either tape or pass through the knotted thread.
