VASE OUT OF A PLASTIC BOTTLE
Mark and cut the smooth middle portion of the bottle
to give an even edge approx 7.5 to 8cm (3") above where you want the fluted rim to be.
Measure and make straight, evenly spaced cuts all the way around the bottle.
Cut the segments in half and then cut each of those in half to make even, thin strips.
Carefully press and fold all the strips outward
to make a level edge all the way around.
Press the bottle upside down
on a flat surface to ensure an even edge.
Weave the tip of a strip over the next one and under the next two.
Fold and crease it so that the tip is at the place shown here by the arrow.
Fold and crease the next one the same way
, but weave this one over two and under one.
Fold the third strip and weave
the same as the first one.
Continue around in this pattern until the last three and tuck each one under the next
until woven in completely.
