I decided to make the size of my strips in a 10″ by 10″ square. Place the layers in an even stack. It’s important to make sure that the stack is even. If you don’t do this, the folding process with get messy!
Begin to fold these layered strips or square back and forth in about a 1/2 inch width, accordion style. Keep folding back and forth until you have a complete 1/2 inch strip.
As you can see in this photo, I used a small zip tie. It worked pretty well, as I used the thin, zip tie part that was left over to attach to the stem with the tape.
