directions

  1. Paint fun patterns on the top side of uncoated paper plates. I used gouache paints I had on hand but you can use any type of paint, even a kid’s school watercolor set will do the job. Just paint as you please and allow the plates to dry completely before assembling them.
  2. Then watch the video below to see how to fold and assemble them!
