A quick tip for designing cross-wraps on the cheap

This may be common practice for some of you but it has helped me learn crosswraps tremendously since I discovered it myself.
I was reading some instructions on how to do simple crosswraps and I came across the tape method where you buy thin strips of tape of various colors and lay them out in X patterns to simulate threads on a cross wrap.
This got me thinking of an even easier/cheaper method. If you have access to a word processing software you can easily use small rectangle shape objects to simulate threads.
By copy pasting and manipulating the draw order of each thread you can come up with all sorts of crosswrap designs one thread at a time in minutes.
Hope this helps some of you guys wrap your head around crosswraps. It has certainly helped me.
