  8. hay bale making. you will need raffia ribbon balsa or mdf {i used 8.5x75x915 balsa wood} school glue or pva sharp knife cotton and needle you need to split the raffia ribbon with the knife , easy to do in small sections once you get a good pile cut to 2cm next cut balsa wood to 2.5cm long by 1.3cm wide or the size you wan't on the narrow side cover with glue and place a clump of cut raffia on the glue and push down flat repeat for the over side and let dry for a while once dry cut flat to the balsa wood then glue the larger side and repear the process when this is dry glue and stick the ends let dry again and trim up, should be starting to look like a hay bale then wrap cotton around, and tie off run a few beads of glue around the sting dry again finished ,pain full i know but there all ready to glue on the track round bales raffia double sided tape around 2cm wide glue cardboard strips{breaky box} 2cm x 14 cm cut your srands of raffia around3 cm this time stick to one side of the double tape around 20cms of tape roll your carboard into the size circle you want the bails at ,i did under 2cm circle peel the other side of the tape of and rap around cut to size all the sides glue a pile of off cuts to top and bottom cotton around and all done
