Cut three bamboo sticks to different lengths (for example 8 cm, 12 cm and 15.5 cm) using mitre cutters.
Decorate the bamboos sticks with different patterns using a Plus Color marker.
Cut two pieces of natural twine each measuring 90 cm. Tie the sticks together with a knot on both sides of each bamboo stick approx. 4 cm apart. Leave a 10 cm piece of natural twine at the bottom for attaching the faux leather paper leaf.
Print the template of the leaves which is attached as a separate PDF file on this page. Cut out the leaves from faux leather paper and fold in concertina fashion with approx. 1 cm between each fold.
Fold in the middle with the long side facing up as shown in the photo.
Secure the ends with a stapler and tie the leaves onto the mobile.
