a1is004c ~ Vintage Seed Catalog

Tools for Assembling Paper Mini’s Kit:

  • Metal straight-edge (ruler). Make fold lines by pressing against the edge of the ruler.
  • White craft glue that is a “quick grab” “clear dry” type of glue and glue stick.
  • X-acto blade tool and fresh blade
  • A true cutting mat
  • Small artist brush with which to paint on glue
  • Small piece of aluminum foil to squeeze work glue onto. This will act as your glue pot
  • Scissors
  • Small detailing scissors, a.k.a. as embroidery snips
  • Small black office clips


 
1. Cut out the catalog cover and fold spine against the metal straight edge.
 

   

3. Cut the long strip of paper. Fan fold the strip at lines. Check for proper thickness by pressing the fan-folded paper into the catalog cover. If you find the pages are cut slightly larger than the cover, cut to adjust.


 
4. Place a dot of glue to the center of each paper panel. You may take a paint brush and evenly distribute the glue to the center of each page. A swipe of glue stick will work as well.

 
5. Press fan-folded paper and pin tightly with a binder clip or two. Allow to dry thoroughly.

 
6. Paint spine area and front and back surface of faux paper pages with glue.

 
7. Place the paper pages carefully into the cover and press tightly.
