For several minutes we boil our mixture, and then we sit. Next, we moisten the prepared plate with water and gently sculpt to its bottom pieces of paper. All subsequent scraps of paper will need to be dipped into the glue and attached to each other. Our product must be thoroughly dried. It is best to leave it overnight. Then you can carefully separate the paper plate from the workpiece. If necessary, level the edges. Now it can be colored and embellished with beads, beans, colorful buttons and walnut shells. Beans and shells can also be painted in any color you like, and then, covering them with varnish, glued to a paper plate.
The second way
We will need:
- a sheet of cardboard or paper.
Take a piece of paper and draw a circle in the middle. Then cut out from one side a triangle of a small size. In this case, the upper corner of the triangle should be in the middle of our sheet. Then you need to fold the cup in the form of a cone from a sheet of paper and fix its edges. Now bend the sharp end inside our product, thereby creating a stable bottom for the paper plate. Such a plate can be used, both as a decorative object, and as a dish for various loose products.
