I like weaving and its different techniques,I learn weaving during my textile designing studies…A few days back I work on an easy idea of basket weave with paper tape..Then I paste this on a journal cover.its easy,and fun idea,so why not to share it’s making with you?
I am having a brown paper tape roll which is helping me in making some crafty things..you can see my decoupaged plate with the same tape.Lets see what I have tried this time :)

First cut some strips of paper & paste the both sides of strips on any rough paper base(I am pasting on a newspaper)
Let’s warp & weft simply,Start weaving.
When you will complete weaving then paste weaved patch piece on your journal(remove newspaper sheet) 

For finishing its edges,you will need to cover with any folded paper..as a bias tape.
