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
  • Tweezers
  • Cotton Swab

Masks: These are easy, merely cut them out and glue thick thread to each side of mask. Tie tight enough to make mask curve slightly. This gives a nice dimension for display purposes.

Trick-or-Treat Bags: Fold bag into shape.

2. Use an artist’s brush and paint glue to blank side of long tab found on side of tote bag. Press tight to inside surface of bag using a swab and/or tweezers.

3. Dab a little glue to the tabs found on the base of the bag and press closed. Place on firm surface and use a swab to press on tabs.

4. Cut two handles per bag out of enclosed ribbon. Glue one end to inner surface of  first bag. Allow it to glue, then glue the other end in place. Repeat for all handles.

Plates: fold upwards all four sides of plates, and pinch corners.

Cups: Cut out pieces. Use an X-acto blade tool to cut notches at the cup base.

2. Fold notched tabs at a 90 degree angle to cup.

3. Glue side tab of cup.

4. Glue round disk (color side up) to notched tabs at base of cup.

Invitation Envelopes: Fold invitations in half. To form an envelope, take one card and center envelope over it. Methodically fold each pointed panel to the card’s back side. This will give you a perfectly fitted card and envelope. Secure envelope with a couple of dots of glue.

Witch Hats: Place a triangle of glue to one end of hat. Wrap other end over in such a way that the bottom edge of the hat is flat.

Stand-up Table Decoration: Fold item in half with blank sides together and fold the two blue strips at the base.

2. Glue the two blue strips together.
