For handicrafts, straws of different lengths and thicknesses may be useful. Therefore, twisting the tubes should be in accordance with the format of future crafts. The longest straw (44-45 cm) is obtained by using the full rotation of the log, i.e. two pages at once. If twisting is not very tight, then the tube will be thicker and softer. From one whole page of the magazine it turns out a straw of 33-32 cm long. A short one (21-22 cm) can be made by cutting such a page across into two parts. The shorter the straw, the easier it is to twist.

Twisting paper straws without knitting needles and pencils
For the manufacture of paper tubes, you can use thick and thin knitting needles, pens, pencils, smooth sticks, winding multicolored sheets of paper on them. So straws turn out hollow inside. But the length of the pencil or knitting need not be enough, and they will be lost inside the rolled roll. You can make a paper straw without the help of additional items. Work should start from the corner, so that the paper does not jam, but went smooth line.

Sometimes magazines with glossy paper come across. The drawings on them are more colorful and beautiful. But such sheets are harder to fold because they slide. If the paper is stubborn and badly curled, it should be moistened. Strong watering is not necessary, because it can break. It is enough to wipe the sheet with a damp sponge or sprinkle with water from a spray bottle. When the structure of the paper is slightly disturbed, it is easier to undergo any transformation. It is not always that the tube immediately becomes tight. To seal the twisting and make the wand thinner, it is enough to roll on the table. The already finished straw should be covered with a palm and, with effort, pressing against the surface, rolled several times in one direction. You can tighten the tube in your hands. When it becomes thin enough, the corner must be fixed so that the tube does not turn. It is more convenient to do this with a small bottle of PVA glue with a sharp nose. Save should not be better to squeeze a little more and wrap the remaining corner.The glue dries almost immediately, leaves no traces, so its excess on paper will not be visible.
