Most little boys are partial to Dinosaurs and astonish me with how they manage to learn and recite the names. No Bones About it was released in this years Annual Catalogue …. and it's totally Rawrsome! …
I finally set to work. I knew I didn't want the primary colours that he'd have liked a few years back, when he was still learning his colours, but something perhaps a little older.
I based my colour choices on the Designer Series Paper that I selected for the Box lid from the English Garden pack … yes that's right … the English Garden pack isn't just pretty flowers.
I made the box, just as I had for the base of a friends Gift recently, where I'd added internal dividers (see the post Here).
I then used the backing cardboard to various packs of paper and card stocks to make up the boards and counters, matting and layering and corner rounding pretty much everything that wasn't already round.
The papers on the counters are again from the English Garden Designer Series Paper pack.
After completing this set and photographing it, I decided that I wanted to add a little Muslin bag for the counters, so I stamped the Diplodocus image to the front using Mint Macaron, a sweep of Old Olive for some grass and stamped the word Bingo to the front. This will help keep the counters in the box from falling out, should the box ever get dropped.
I had so much fun making this set and feel so pleased that finally I have completed a project that I've had in my head for far too long.
For those of you who had previously asked for the measurements of the Box that I'd made before, which will indeed work for this project too, here they are.
You need to take two sheets of Cardstock measuring 11.5" square and score one at 1 3/4" on all four sides and one at 1 11/16" on all four sides. Cut off the corners of each and cut into the corner tabs as shown, before assembling.
I hope you like today's share … It was certainly something a little different from me.
Enjoy your weekend, however you are spending it.
