Firstly, spray the paper on one side using the edding Permanent Spray, allow to dry. We recommend spraying rapidly using horizontal and vertical strokes. Try not to apply too much paint, otherwise the paper will warp. Once the paint is dry, repeat on the other side.
When it's completely dry, cut the paper into strips depending on how big you want your mobiles to be (example: 21 x 4.5 cm).
You can then use your edding Gloss Paint Markers to add whatever designs, lettering or text to both sides of the paper. This can be freehand or with stencils.
Cut two strips of tracing paper to a slightly smaller size than the paper strips and decorate them to your liking.
Place the three layers of strips on top of each other and punch them together with the rivet pliers. Using the pliers, fix an eyelet in the hole to hold them in place. Attach the feather and the bead to one end of the wire. Make a long hanging loop at the other end and thread the wire through the hole.
