And balloons and buttons and a giant 5!!
it part of an older release from Crealies and I just love it.
Make a Shaker Number
The new Crealies number dies in the Cardzz category are really huge and are perfect to make banners and huge decorations. For my toy train I made 2 big number 5 's
Here is how you can easily make a shaker number.
Die cut your base using the largest shadow number.
Tape the inner 2 numbers together and die cut double sided adhesive foam.
Die cut an acetate sheet using the middle number.
Stick this onto your adhesive number frame.
Press well to stick
Add a frame made using the inner 2 numbers and add it over your shaker
And you have a quick and easy Shaker number.
Make Toy Train wagons
If you want to make a sturdy but lightweight toy train you use foam to give strength your paper train.
For each train wagon/engine
Die cut 3 pieces [1 in pattern paper, 1 in card stock and 1 in foam- to be sandwiched between pattern paper and cardstock] for the front and 3 pieces for the back.
To make the wagon boxes
You can make the boxes from chipboard like Patty showed on the Crealies channel or make the wagons using cardstock like I did for this project
use paper clips to help keep your parts together as your glue dries
Stick the foam in between the pink cardstock and silver paper...this makes your part sturdy and prevents it from buckling while keeping it lightweight
in each of the wagons and in the windows!
I hope you like some of the ideas I have shared in this post
