Op-Art Weaving

Op-Art Weaving craft

Use Crayola Scissors to create eye-popping optical illusions with vibrant weavings!

  • 1.

    Use Crayola Scissors to cut a large, wavy-sided rectangle out of colorful or wavy-lined paper.

  • 2.

    Cut several wavy lines across the inside, going in the same direction as the long wavy edges. Leave a 1-inch (2.5 cm) border on all sides. Make your slits at least 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) apart.

  • 3.

    Cut several 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) strips from contrasting paper. Weave the strips through the slits. Alternate weaving over and then under. Continue weaving until the space is filled with bright designs.

  • 4.

    Trim off any strips that hang out from your original shape. Use tiny dots of glue to hold your weaving in place. Air-dry the glue before you wow your friends with your optical illusion.
