Spooky!

Sunday, October 20, 2013

This week, the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog is celebrating the SPOOKY!  For my project, I used some Glitz papers from the Raven line to create some fun paper puzzle blocks.
The blocks were easily constructed from cereal box cardboard.  I created some cubes and secured them with hot glue. Yes, using the glue gun can be SCARY. Don't let the construction FRIGHTEN you off. Remember 10th grade geometry? Yeah....me neither. How EERIE! But if someone had told me that I'd be making cool paper cubes someday, I bet that I would've paid more attention in class.
I created a cube "pattern" and then cut the cereal boxes down to size and ran the cardboard through the printer. (I used 6 pieces of cardboard or three cereal boxes. (YAY~!  Recycling!) Running them through the printer was much easier than tracing. I cut out the cube printed cardboard with scissors. The score board was really helpful in creating tight creases for folding. I secured the blocks with hot glue and then I gave them a base coat of black paint. I stamped and sprayed some Glitz patterned papers and cut them to size for the cubes.  (I used 6 different patterns)  The papers were glued down with a glue stick. Below is a photo of the SAME set of blocks.  The Owl mysteriously disappeared!

HAPPY STAMPING!

  16. Michelle! I really love this piece and how you made the blocks gorgeous from any angle. The decorative possibilities are endless! And I also got a kick out of your witty write-up, particularly the reference to not remembering 10th grade Geometry. Amen, sister! And an extra kudos for using those cereal boxes in such a clever way! Your projects are always so interesting and impressive.
