    Weaves are done by stacking peices of ribbon.

    cool so i would make a ribbon and then cut it into peices and then make a new ribbon out of those and then lay those ribbons on the inside of the tube?

    i think it's easier to cut and flip a wrap and rake.

    make a very large ribbon cane and cut it into equal sized tiles. make a T with clear rods and stack the tiles accodingly on the T. do it kinda diagonally so that you can curl one end around to meet the other so it becomes a tube. have the top parts match up and condense until it is a solid bubble. its kinda a lot of work

    Well I'm not gonna say there a right way or a wrong way to do anything...whatever works for you works for you. But when I do them I stack them into a sheet first and then roll it up into a tube. I've only done two and they are a pain but they do have a unique look

    man i just tryed that the other day and laying eachone individually means each tile has to be perfect {meaning the tile can't be to thick either}and placed in their individually is not as clean looking as the peices i've seen, too it probably takes lotz of patience and time to get it all just right....i'm not tryin that one out again for a while...let me know if u figure the secret out...

    if all of your tiles are somewhat the same size, then as you condense down they will seal up any holes between the tiles. The key is to try to get your ribbon as even as possible when pulling it down and also try to measure out each tile as close as possible.

    Pull a long ribbon and only use pieces out of the center where it's more even for this,and use the rest for other things.
