Round boxes (as seen on Webinar 28th August 2012)

Here is a quick and easy way to put together a Round
box.
Make the Cut pattern HERE
LETS BEGIN
When designing it I put the base to the right and the lid to the 
left . To make the base I take the top side pannel on the 
right of the mat and the very right circle
Fold the tabs in at the score line and with your fingers 
give the side some shape
Now glue and the end tab (when making lesson I did not 
allow mine to dry before letting go )
Now put glue aroung the Edge of the circle piece
And place it face down in your side of the box 
(protect your work surface with some
 backing paper of something (I didn't) )
now push around the edge with your finger 
all way round
Turn it upside down
Now add the second circle to the right of the mat to the 
bottom of that
And you have your base of your box made
You are left with these on your mat
take the side strip and right circle
and fold the tabs and shape the side with your fingers
join side into a circle
drop the circle with glue all around edge in face down
push down well
turn over and get the last circle of mat
And add to the bottom of base
Finished your BOX
Lid fits well
Adding a bigger base to box you now have a 
hat shaped box

add ribbon and bow
Oh and this idea can be not only for round boxes 
but can be oval boxes as well
You can make the wall of the lid  shorter if you like too

Kit robot Clock (now not a clock

A while a go I brought this Kit Robot 
and I have just recently put it together 
BUT THEN  As I am already being driven crazy
by the sounds of ticking clocks 
I turned it into a photo frame and 
put of picture of neal in it 



No longer a clock  better 
as a picture frame

Paper balloon

I really like Hot Air Balloons and have been to a few festivals
around Australia. Back in March I found a wonderful site 
called Paper Matrix which makes wonderful paper balloons 
so I gave it a try making one (without watching video on how to 
put together ) Here is what i made LOTS of loose areas in it 
but i am happy with it BUT now I have watched how it is made
I am going to sit down and make another and hope for
better outcome.


Plus now i know what make the cut can do i can edit pattern
a lot easier

HOW to makeup the POP UP Display card with MTC Pattern and SVG pattern for others

Here it is the pattern from the webinar of 
the 14th Ausgust 2012. and I added the putting together 
instructions as well (images are all ALOTA rubber stamps
But watching the webinar and seeing how easy it is you
will be able to put lots of diferent edges on it and make it 
special give it a try it is not that hard at all 
Lets BEGIN
These two are cut this way so as they cut using a 12"
x12" card stock
Overlap and join together
Fold the outer two inwards
And the middle the other way so as you now have a 
W
Now is when you add your top layer as after the next step it will
never lay flat again  I used ALOTA rubber stamps for mine
Used some of the waste off cut to bring the colour of the 
card into the image
Glued all in place
Then you start folding the first one goes this way
Next one folds the other way so they are back to back
So they are all now like this
fold your strips in half length ways
Add tape two to the outside of the v and one to the
inside of the  v
Take one of the outside V's and add to the side 
of the first image
Then conect the other side picture
So it is looking like this both sides
now with the inside v  like this behind
Finsished your card
And even folds for posting
