f1is014b ~ Ouija: Game of Mystery

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

1. Cut out all pieces for both games.  Use the straight edge ruler to press against fold lines. This will give you clean straight creases. Fold at all fold lines on all pieces.

Note: Use the blade tool to cut the little tight spots such as those on the donkey tails.

Take the planchette storage box piece and place a layer of glue to the long side tab.

2. Press tab against inner side panel to form box.

3. Place glue to the bottom long tab and close up the end of the planchette box.

4. Fold the planchette panels down the middle seam and glue.

5. Trim the outer rim of the planchette.

6. Use tweezers to position and glue the three black beads to the under side of the planchette. These act as feet.

7.  Take the folded box top. Glue the tiny four tabs in place.

8. Glue down the lining panels found on each side of the box top. Use tweezers to squeeze the glued fold line. This makes the edges thin and uniform so that the top will fit on the bottom. Repeat for both boxes' tops and bottoms.

9. Fold the Ouija board in half and glue blank sides together.

Glue beads to underside of board or balsa wood strips to make it look more realistic.
