Shoe Box Weaving

We've been doing some weaving with shoeboxes this year for our handicrafts class. I found several great video tutorials on youtube (embedded below), but I made a loom on a shoebox instead of a flat piece of cardboard (as shown in the video). Mostly we've just been experimenting with techniques and having lots of fun doing it.

That looks really fun! Do you need to use a needle for it or are there other alternatives? Could I just put some masking tape at the end of the yarn so it is easy to push through?

You can definitely get away with just putting tape on the end of yarn if you do it this way with a loose weave. I think the needle was easier, but not by much.
