Papier Mache

Papier mache is a great craft product for a quick, simple and creative activity!

  • These boxes can be decorated in a number of ways. Use the steps below as a decorative guide and mix up the techniques to create a unique combination of your own!
  • Step 1Paint your box a bright colour. Allow to dry.
  • For less glitter wastage, use a scrap piece of paper folded in half to catch the glitter falling off the box while decorating. This will make it easy to tip the glitter back into the container ready to reuse!
  • Step 3Cover the area to be decorated with a light coat of glue. While the glue is still tacky sprinkle glitter over the glue, covering it entirely. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Use a paint brush to apply paint to your stamper. Press the stamper onto the box, continue this process in a pattern to decorate your box.
  • Step 5We created our own stampers, take a look at our Foam Stampers to learn how to make some for yourself.
  • Step 6Alternatively, use the end of a cotton filter to paint dots on your box. Allow to dry.
