Many types of items can be used as a basic paperweight. These items are often used as a gift for people who work in an office environment and typically will have some sort of message. If you do not want to purchase this type of item, then another alternative is available. You can easily make your own from an item like a dandelion. Creating a dandelion paperweight is a great project to do on a weekend.

The materials that are needed to make a dandelion paperweight can be found at most craft stores or any retail stores that sell a clear resin. You can also find this type of product online. One thing that might be an issue is where you will do the work for this project. Make sure you make a dandelion paperweight in a well-ventilated area.

A face mask may be needed when making a dandelion paperweight due to harmful fumes. You can find one to use for this project at a local hardware store or home improvement store. The next step after you obtain all the necessary supplies is to search for the best dandelions to use. These are a weed that is found in a lot of yards that have not been treated with weed killer.

The shape of the paperweight comes from a plastic case used for the toys in a regular vending machine. A few hours is all that is needed to make a dandelion paperweight.
