Can You Solve The "Impossible" Braid Puzzle?

Though it really does seem impossible, the "impossible" braid puzzle can indeed be solved. Can you crack this one? You have a long, narrow strip of paper. The paper has two long slits cut in it, but they do not run off the ends. How can you twist the paper so that the long parts are braided without tearing or cutting the paper at all?
