  2. Wrap a strip around the wooden form.

Children’s paper-recycling ideas:
Use newspaper to make starter pots for seedlings.
Use gift wrap to make cups for dry snacks or party favors; a dab of glue or tape strip will be needed to hold it closed.
Use newspaper or magazine pages to make containers for small art supplies, such as beads or pom poms; a dab of glue or tape strip will be needed to hold it closed.
