You can find an article on making molas out of colored construction paper in
the October 1994 issue of Arts and Activities magazine, page 24 written by
Shirley Laird, St. Paul's Day School, Kansas City, Mo.
If you can't get a back issue, I will be happy to send you a photocopy of
the article if you send me your address, but it won't get there too quick
cause it will be coming from Italy.
In this article she used Exacto knives.....if you can figure out a way of
doing it with scissors let me know.
