I am thinking snake skins for my DIY tarp are next on my list. Folding it up nice and neat is okay but rolling it up, stuffing it in a sock and dropping it in my bag is a much better idea!
I like what you have so far. Lots of good advice given here.

As a simple alternative to snakeskins, I use velcro cable ties HERE'S AN EXAMPLE that are simply wrapped anchored to my tarp continuous ridge line and then wrapped around the tarp after I roll it up. It's not quite as compact as snakeskins but it's super simple, super light and an easily replaceable solution.
For my OES MacCat Deluxe, I use three ties.

i just furl it with my guyline tieouts. i don't see why anything more that that is ever needed...
1. I have gone at it with a hose and no drip line with my OES tarp and my hammock remain totally dry. That was just one time though but it was a hose and I had the flow of water right on the strap.
