How to make a paper towel bandanna
Paper towels are a staple in my house.
But they can also be a source of irritation for some people, especially if they’re trying to clean up after a pet or children.
To make them more comfortable, I thought I’d give you a quick tutorial on how to make the perfect paper towel blanket.
First, you’ll need a paper towels bandana.
This will help keep your paper towels clean.
You can buy them online or get them at any grocery store.
They’re a bit big, but you can cut them in half and wrap the half together.
This is the most basic way to make one, but it’ll give you plenty of options.
Now you’re ready to make your paper towel cover.
First, you need a large square piece of cardboard or felt like you’re going to use a cookie sheet.
The more squares you have, the more paper towels you’ll have.
I usually make mine about a foot square, so it’s about 12 squares.
Then, cut a rectangle from one of the squares.
The reason this is important is because you want to make it so the paper towels are evenly distributed around the cardboard or feel.
For this tutorial, I used a rectangular one.
You could make your cover in any length, but the bigger you make it, the easier it will be to keep the paper towel covers from overlapping.
I’m going to make mine a little smaller than the ones that came with my paper towels because I like the shape of them.
You don’t need to cut a square, but be careful not to cut too much into the cardboard.
Next, fold the cardboard down to the size of the paper you’re covering.
I like to make my paper towel paper towel rectangle about half the size, so I’d say about 16 square inches.
Next is the seam.
This seam is where you want the paper to go, so cut a hole at one end.
This is the edge of the bandana that you want.
The bottom is going to be where the paper will rest, so you want that seam.
Now you want this seam to be parallel to the cardboard, but perpendicular to the paper.
I make mine slightly shorter, so if you make one paper towel, it’ll be about 3/4-inch shorter.
You can see here that I made mine very thin, so the seams are all pretty sharp.
The middle piece is just a little longer than the other one, so this will give it a little extra lift.
Now that the paper is all folded down, you’re done.
Now it’s time to put it on.
Take a piece of cardstock or paper towel to make sure it’s clean and dry.
Next you want your paper to be covered.
I used my finger and a towel because that’s what my kids love to do, and it’s easier for them to see the paper when it’s wet.
I’m sure it wouldn’t be too bad for you to use some paper towels too, but make sure they’re the same kind of ones that you’re using.
You might need to clean them after use, too.
Now, it’s going to look a little messy.
Make sure you wipe off the excess paper on top of it with a damp cloth and then brush it off with a rag.
You’ll see where the edges of the cardboard have been scratched, and you’ll also see where some of the pieces are sticking out.
This could be easily cleaned up by just wiping it off.
The next step is to make an adhesive bandana covering.
This part is pretty easy, too, just like the other steps.
First you’ll want to cut two strips of card stock.
Lay one side on top and then cut a second strip on the opposite side.
This should be the end of the backing piece, so make sure you cut the end as well.
Then fold the two strips in half.
You want the backing pieces to be about 1/4 inch apart.
Now we want to attach this backing piece to the sides of the folded paper towel strips.
I usually make this bandana on my paper sheets with a tapered bandana strip.
It makes it look a bit more decorative, and also helps to give me the option to make them longer or shorter.
I use the tapered bands on my card stock so that they’ll stretch to fit the width of my paper sheet.
If you have a different bandana type, you can use whatever you like.
You should now have a nice paper towel-y covering on your paper sheet, and your paper will stay cleaner.
The paper towel backing should look like this now:Now that your paper is covered, you just want to place the paper on your cardboard.
I cut a slit about a 1/8-inch from the bottom of the cover, and this should sit just below the edge on your piece of paper.
You just want the edges to be level with the paper and not bumpy. Make
