        *Fold all strips accordion style *SPECIAL NOTE: If using DSP fold 2 of each color with pattern choice UP and the 3rd DOWN (see photo)
        *Attach end to end *SPECIAL NOTE: You will end up with 2 ends facing the same direction, just use paper snips to cut off one end to finish circle (see photos)
