- Scrap cardboard
- 3-ply string
- Double-sided tape
Draw out a large capital letter on scrap card and cut out. Glue to another layer of card and cut around. Continue building up layers until the letter is at least 5mm thick. Figure how the letter will be wrapped and begin in areas that will need their ends covered by other lengths of twine, for example the sides of the crosspiece of the letter A.
Use double-sided tape to fix short lengths of twine around the problematic areas before covering the cut ends with a wrap. Continue winding twine around the rest of the template, holding in place with adhesive as you go.
