We fix the beginning of the tube and bend each tubule of the base either from the outside or from the inside. After the first row with the same success and zeal we weave the second. To extend the paper tube elementarily: insert the next into the free edge of the previous by 2-3 cm, fix it with glue and safely continue the weaving.
