Making a brick wall from paper

Greetings everyone,
A lot of the items that i have made recently are paper brick. Putting some of these things on messages boards have raised a question???...how do you do this? Well I'm going to attempt to outline the steps taken and the way I build a brick wall from paper.

                                          Starting with a full sheet of bricks off the computer               

                                          First one gets cut out
 
                                           First one gets pasted down

                                           Pretty simple so far.....


                                          Next piece...tear off the top of 2nd piece


                                           Overlap the first piece
                                          Next piece...tear left side

                                          Paste this piece down

                                           Next piece...tear top and left side

                                          Paste this piece down
                    
                                          4 pieces down...no lines can be seen

                                          Take a piece of brick and paste to card

                                         Cut a few brick out of that piece

                                          Paste it down....can't see it can you?

                                          you will after you use this...Crack Shot

                                          Feather in spackling compound

                                          Next....sepia, very thin coat on spackling

                                          Water it down so that its not to heavy

                                          And there is your brick wall
