Papier-Mâché with Wood Veneer
Papier-mâché bird boxes covered with hand-made paper and wood veneer using VTR adhesive.
How to do it
Paint the edges of the lid with Plus Color.
Brush the sides of the birds with VTR adhesive and cover with hand-made paper.
Draw the shape of the bird box lids onto wood veneer and cut out.
Attach the bird wood shape onto the lids with special extra strong double-sided adhesive sheet.
Make holes in the middle of the lids with an eyelet tool.
Fold a piece of the leather cord into 3-folds, long enough to tie a knot and to attach a wood bead at both ends (approx. 10cm).
Tie a knot in one end and thread on a wood bead.
Insert the cord end into the hole of the lid.
Attach another wood bead onto the leather cord from the inside of the lid. Glue it on on the inside of the lid.
