Decoration for children with penguin images
. Detail of panel.
  • - Start by gluing the two frame hanger adhesive at the two corners of the upper side in the gray Bristol board.
  • - Reinforce the upper side by gluing a strip of any card. In this way, your panel will remain tense when you hang it.
  • - Cut out the white card as you see in the picture and paste it on the bottom of the gray card.
  • - Prepare the snowflakes.
    - cut out accurately the penguin images
    - moisten the back of every image with a sponge, soaked and well squeezed
    - place the image on the snowflake center
    - brush the glue with delicacy
  • - Let all dry very well.
  • - Prepare the images to be glued on the foam rubber or white board if you prefer.
    - in this case, cut roughly the area in which they are included
    - spread a thin layer of glue on the foam rubber and then place your images
    - avoid the formation of any fold
    - let all dry perfectly and then cut out the outline of your figures carefully
  • - Fix every image to white Bristol board with patafix pieces.
  • - To hang your panel.
    - tie the nylon thread to one of your frame hanger adhesive
    - unroll the nylon thread, let it pass over the door and then reach the handle of the other side, go back over the door and tieit to the second hook
  • - Now let's hang the snowflakes.
    - cut the wire into 4 little pieces
    - give them a U-shape and introduce each of one into the top of a snowflake, leaving a small loop that sticks out
    - knot the nylon thread inside the little loop that you've formed in the previous step and then pass the thread over the door
    - secure it on the opposite side of the door with a piece of patafix or knot it directly to the handle
    - the same step for every snowflake
  • - Your penguin-decorated panel is ready!.
