Create the collages. Let your creativity guide you, and look for colors and patterns from the ephemera that inspire you. Combine old advertisements or letters with a millinery leaf and then top off the combination with an old button. When you are pleased with each collage, use the glue stick to adhere the elements together.
Attach the collages to the mounting boards. For each paperweight, remove the backing from the adhesive mounting board provided in the kit. Place the collage on the mounting board. Use scissors to trim any overhanging parts of the collage from the board.
Finish the paperweights. Fit the mounting board into the recess in the base of each glass paperweight. Remove the backing from the adhesive of the bottom pad, center it on the bottom of the paperweight, and press it firmly in place.
