Je t’aime Typewriter Box
I’m excited to share my first project using Pion Design’s new Paris Flea Market collection. These breathtaking papers are now available in my online shop. Pastel pinks and blues are my favorite colors to craft with and so this collection is just dreamy heaven for me! This typewriter was designed for the Pion Design blog and you can find the project on their blog here. The project was made using an unusual material – poster board! It’s about 1/4″ thick. I started by making a hinged rectangular box that opens in the back, and then designed the typewriter around the box. It can hold a small mini album or whatever keepsake you would like to fit inside it. I drew the different pieces of the typewriter onto the poster board and then used a craft knife to carefully cut out the pieces. I doubled the poster board on several of the typewriter pieces to make them thicker. The pieces were all covered with the gorgeous paper and then were glued together. The typewriter keys are plastic spacers in different lengths that I found at a local hardware store. I wrapped pink paper around them and then used black round alphabet epoxy 3D stickers. The black ruler on top was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo and one of their cutting files.
Best wishes to everyone for a great weekend!
