While unfolding an antique dresser scarf, I discovered a hand-stitched initial; a singular work of art that had been created nearly a century ago. This treasure has now been captured in a paperweight (PhotoWeights: Heirloom Rectangle), creating a charming paperweight that will lend some cottage style to any desk.
Each PhotoWeights paperweight kit includes the paperweight, mounting board, and velvet bottom pad you'll need for this project.
A tattered, stained piece of linen may hold hidden gems.
Place your pre-cut, self-adhesive mounting board on the back of the fabric and cut any overlapping material. Use a liquid seam sealer to prevent the edges from fraying.
Place the fabric/mounting board face-down onto the bottom of the paperweight.
Cover the base of the paperweight with the velvet bottom pad.
