Here's what you do:

Cut your 12" x 12" paper into strips. Mine were about 3/4 inch wide.

Cut each 12" x 12" strip in half, so that they are 6 inches long.

Adhere one end to the other, creating a looped look at the ends.

Using Craft or Permanent Glue Dots, adhere five of those "loops" together for the base. Note: Permanenet Dots have a blue tint to make it easier to see where the Glue Dots are placed.
