I believe all of us have a soft spot in our hearts for particular items we've found ourselves collecting over the years. Victorian trading cards have been a favorite of mine for more than a decade. There's just something about these pieces of card, beautifully printed with decorative advertising.
The photo above shows the paperweight kit's mounting board covered with kiwi paper. The trading card was glued to the kiwi paper and allowed to dry completely. (Tip: Place the top surface of your paperweight on the item to weigh it down as it dries.)
Here's how the paperweight is assembled:
Figure 2: Place your artwork image-side down into the recessed area on the bottom of the paperweight.
Figure 3: Cover the base of the paperweight with the pre-cut, self-adhesive bottom pad. This piece is also included with each paperweight kit.
