What You’ll Do
First, you will need to cut out two long thick paper strips. They must be the same size.
Apply glue on one end of both strips. Place one strip horizontally and the other one vertically. Overlap the glued areas.
Now, flip and fold over the bottom strip over the top strip.
Keep going like this until you have the length you need. You can attach more strips with the ends to make the spring longer.
When you are done, secure the ends with glue.
