Christmas Paperweights

A smooth rock, a paper napkin with choice of motif and paper napkin glue. You will not need too much more than that to make a paperweight that you can give a fellow office worker or a child for its homework area at home.



Christmas Paperweight Set

For this project you will need:

- smooth rock (light colored if possible - if not, you can paint it white before continuing)
- paper napkin with small motif of choice that will also fit on the rock
- paper napkin applique glue
- soft flat paint brush
- glitter (optional)


1. Cut out the napkin motif and remove all but the top layer.
2. Now add a thin coat of paper napkin applique glue to a small area of the rock where the motif will be placed. Place the napkin motif over this area and first smoothen it flat with your fingers. Be careful not to tear the napkin. Now carefully brush paper napkin applique glue over the motif, starting at the center and working your way towards the outer edges of the motif. Be also careful not to tear the napkin while brushing the glue over it. Let the napkin dry.
6. If you like, sprinkle a little bit of glitter of the wet glue in areas that could use a little highlighting, such as the snow on the winter motif, or the edge of the dog or bird motifs.
