Project Steps

Colored paper

Choose any different colors of paper that you desire and as much as you want.


Mix all the colors together, then cut the papers into pieces 4¼” by 5½”.

If you are using 8½”x11″ paper, after cutting it you will end up with four little pads.

Making the spiral!

Hold opposite corners of the stack.

Then twist your hands in opposite directions.

Turn the stack of paper around.

Then twist your hands again.

Give at least 10 twists and you will see the results.


Glue one side of the spiral.

The video will give you a better view of how to make the spiral and how to glue it.
