Paper Weight Making Idea-Azadi Crafts Series
Paper weight is kind of essentials for everyone who used to work on desk with papers & books everyday. Isn’t it? Specially when you are working during summer season & a fan is above your head. That’s so me seriously! I don’t have any air conditioner in my craft room.. I have to on the fan while working. So fan air can easily make mess with paper. I have made some paper weights to meet this challenge of scattering papers around. Do you remember my Lady Bug Pebble Paper weight? And another dough paper weight which I made out of dried clay?
If you are a student, You need to have a paper weight on your desk for keeping the papers organizer while studying or working. So here it is another idea I am sharing how you can make a paper weight with Independence day craft theme. You can also try this with any other theme or colors. Let’s see how to made it.
Plastic lid of any jar or clay tile piece
White Clay or dough
Silver kat-dana glass beads
Green small glass beads
Pakistani Flag badge
Let’s see How To Make Clay Paper Weight with Pakistani Flag & Beads
Paste some clay on the jar lid or any tile piece. I had a white clay tile which I decorate.
I use collage clay for topping, It’s soft and thin. Fix the flag badge in the middle of the tile. I made this clay flag when I was making this clay flag charm last year.
Pour beads in two different plates first, Then place the tile in silver beads plate or put the tile upside down in plate. Kat dana beads will stick to the clay, Then shake off extra beads.
Put the tile in green beads plate now & do the same with green beads.
Fix the beads with your fingers if you want.
Let it dry a little & use transparent nail polish or acrylic spray paint to seal the surface. No bead will fall then.
You can also sprinkle some glitter chunks as well.
