We're ready to start making the body of thedragonfly.
What we're going to do is take this eleven by fourteen paper, it's a mediumweight paper, and we're going to cut strips that are about an inch and a half to two incheswide.
We're going to take them all the way up and then what we'll end up doing is cuttingthem in half.
So we'll cut that in half, and we want about six to seven pieces that areabout that length.
We want to make sure that we're cutting them pretty straight, prettyeven, otherwise our circles when we make these into little loops are going to be off a bit.
We're going to line them up in a perfect line to create the dragonfly's body.
So we wantto make sure that our sizes work.
So we have our strips and now we have these little piecesof tape, we're going to roll and tape them down the long way, just like that, so thatthe loop holds well inside of the side.
We're going to do this for all the pieces, six orseven of them.
And it's okay if they actually are gradual in size, if some are tighter loopedthan others.
We'll figure that out as we lay them out.
