Ever done any bubble gum wrapper weaving as a kid? I don’t even know what we called it, not a paper chain, it was just what it was. Bazooka Joe Comic Wrapper Art, I guess. Here’s a twist on it, for this week’s 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet! 3D74–”that’s a wrap”, baby!

If you’re better with a video tutorial, there are a bunch on You Tube, but I like this one from Jenny Sunshine How To. It’s very clear.
