This week challenge is to create a woodsy outdoor project, using woodsy animals (except for snakes) using twigs, pebbles anything from nature..
We have a fun Colour template for you as a component for this week.
Step 1) Create a high backed box: A) Score a sheet of standard sized cardstock [on the horizontal (so it's short)] at 4.5 inches and at 8 inches B) Turn the cardstock [on the vertical (tall)] and score at 1 and 1/4 as well as 7 and 1/4 C) Cut 2 slits in the center of each side (4 slits in total) to make side flaps.
Step 2) Make embossed shrub panels: Print shrub templates out on green cardstock & trace it to make mirrored parts (for a liner); then, emboss them (this uses a homemade cereal-box embossing plate with little leaves.)
Step 3) Embellish & Adhere the embossed shrub panels to the inside & outside of the box. (These are inked & stitched with beads)
Step 4) Add scenery: Make a sky panel & attach it then create the trees, pond, and other details: A) print & cut the various templates B) cut the tree tops free-hand C) embellish and adhere it all.
Step 5) Print digital birds: colour them & add them to the box
