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.
  • 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
  • Tweezers
  • Cotton Swab
  • Optional: polymer clays for making food items and liquid polymers for drink fluids. I used micro glass beads to simulate bubbles.

Carry-out Bag
1. Cut out a Carry-out Bag and use the metal straight-edge and press against folds for clean crisp creases.
2. Glue the long side tab to the interior blank surface of the bag. Glue the bottom tabs in place.
3. Crease down the center of the bag's sides.

The Sandwich Wrappers and Place Mats are self explanatory.

Specialty Item Boxes
1. Cut out Specialty Item Box using a sharp blade tool. Make sure that the minor slits are cut at each corner. Fold the box appropriately to make a lidded box. Use the little artist’s brush to glue all the little white corner tabs to the blank interior surface of the box. Fill with items you make with polymer clays or self-dry clay/compound.

French Fries Pouches
1. Cut out the Fries pouches and refer to photo as a guide. Form the pocket and glue the side flaps over the little white stripes that run along either edge of the pocket back panel.

Drink Cups
1. Cut out a Drink Cup. Take the body piece and wrap around the handle of the artist’s brush. This gives the piece a nice curve to work with.
2. Fold the small tabs at the bottom of the body. Take care that they are all folded at the same point.
3. Use the artist’s brush to glue the side tab to the inside blank surface of the cup body. Allow to dry thoroughly.
4. Press the little base tabs flat. Cut out the round piece and glue to the tabs. Set cup on the table and then use a swab to press the bond.

Drink Straw
1. Cut out a Drink Straw. Make a crease with the blade tool about 1/32” from the edge. This will help you roll the straw. Roll it as tightly as you can. Cut off excess as needed. Glue length of straw at edge. See the Pencil Photo Tutorial for tips on winding items such as this drink straw.
