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.
  • Tweezers
  • X-acto blade tool and fresh blade
  • A true cutting mat
  • cotton tipped swab
  • 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 pieces and then fold tabs. See "Ann's Tool Box" to see how to make a good folding device.

Get a good curve on the cylinder by first wrapping piece tightly around a shaft such as a paint brush handle. You will see why in step 3.

Glue side tab.

If you are unsure of yourself and want a practice piece first, merely trace the unit on plain paper before cutting pieces. Make a practice unit with the plain trace.

2. Place glue to base circle and adhere to the tabs. Repeat for top circle.

3. Here is the top circle. Note the sharp corners. That is because I forgot to get a good curve on the paper before assembly.

4. Glue the lamp shade's side tab.

5. Glue lamp shade's cross pieces. Fold ends upwards.

6. Place glue to ends of cross pieces. Wedge into interior of shade.
7. Place glue to center of cross pieces. Adhere to top of  lamp base.
