Today it’s time for another DIY! How is it going by you so far?! Enjoying my crafts?!
Anyway, since I love paper so much, I thought why not make some decoration. I chose to draw out Tinkerbell on a present, and devide her in little parts, so you get a 3D effect, kinda. Let’s just start the tutorial, so it get a bit more clear!
For this DIY you’ll need:
♥ Cardstock in the colors Green, Red, White, Yellow, Blue and Beige.
♥ These templates.
♥ Soft Pastel. (optional)
♥ (Colored) Pencils
♥ Things to decorate, like glitter, gelpen, etc. (optional).
Start of with downloading these templates, you can either choose to print them out, or trace them from your screen. Then copy all the little parts from template 2 and 3 onto the cardstock, every part on the right color. The numbers show which part goes where so you can easily pick your colors for you creation. You can always choose to change colors if you want to ^-^.
When you are done tracing all the parts, you can cut them out.
If you are ready with cutting all the parts out, you can choose to make the edges of the paper darker or lighter with some Soft Pastel (or you can use colored pencil, but that makes it a little harder). What I did is go along the edge with the pastel stick and rubbed it with my fingers. (but if you don’t like to get dirty fingers use a tissue or something like that). To do this you create a bit more depth in the end result.
When all the parts are done, you can start gluing all the parts together. Use template 1 as a guidance. This way you almost can’t mess up. and when you are ready draw on her eyes, mouth and nose.
Now it’s time for the fun part, decorating! This is totally optional to do, but I had so much. I drew little snowflakes on the present and use glitter glue for her wings and dress. It gives just that little extra.
I hope you had fun making Tinkerbell! I know I had, cause I needed a small break from all the crocheting xD.
