German Bus~Life in 3D~Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge
Welcome to Bitten By the Bug 2's Life in 3D challenge. I purchased this svg file long ago but was afraid to try it, this challenge was the perfect opportunity. We want to encourage you to try something new this time around. I went simple for this first try. I have always like orange bus and I had this swirly quick quotes paper for decorative panels.
One thing I wish I had done was use glue as the tutorial video shows. I much prefer tape and don't care for wet glue very much. However, I am finding on a 3-dimensional piece that glue just may be the better adhesive choice. (Hint-I have made another one already and will be posting shortly made with glue so you can see the difference).
Not only is it cute, it's functional! There are three layers of paper on the bottom, so it can actually hold stuff. I will say the lid fitting on the base is the hardest part. This one is not great. But I feel you always need a prototype for a involved project to work out the kinks.
I swiped the "sticker" images off the web and printed them on smallest contact sheet print setting to get them as tiny as I could on plain paper. Next time I will do something cuter with the license plate area. On first cut it was a tad bit hard to comprehend where every piece of paper will end up.
Quick Quotes papers
misc card stock, vellum and papers
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
