Step 2

Applying glue on a cardboard roll

Cut the green paper in the form of a rectangle. The length of one side should correspond to the height of the cardboard roll, and the other side should be as long as the volume of the cardboard roll. Apply a thin layer of paper adhesive to the cardboard roll over the entire surface
