I thought it would be fun to pick four colors and paint the dots on them to pop some color on these plates. If you don’t want to paint then you can skip this next step and go onto gluing the plates and the bowl together. I am using four colors and painting the dots around the edge. I just thought it would make the plates look cute and the colors also match the stamp stickers that I picked out at the craft store. Step two: Once you have painted both plates you will take your glue gun and put a line of glue on the top of the candlestick, then turn it over and press it down in the middle of the first plate.

Step three: You will tie one of the strings from the three inch piece of yarn that you just used to secure the ball to the long string running from the pompom. Once you have it secure you can cut the string, I would leave about 8-10 inches of string. This is the part that will sit inside of your book to mark it. Step four: Now take your scissors and you are going to cut straight through the ball (you place your scissors in the center hole) Cut all the loops, but be careful to NOT cut the long string off of the pompom.

Then you will take your tacky glue and run it along the edge on the left, right and bottom of the stack on the left (The taller one. Set your shorter stack on top of that to seal them together. Do not do the top of it with the tacky glue. That is your flap and will fold over onto the front stack. Step four: Attach your magnet. You simply cut two small squares. They have adhesive on them. Fold the flap over and see where you would like to place the magnet, then stick it there. Take the second magnet and stick it on top of that one, remove the paper from the back of it and then close the flap.
