Paper Cubed (P3) July Challenge


Well, here we are, July already!

Good news is it's time for another challenge over at Paper Cubed (P3). This months challenge is to make a table top decoration. It can be any theme or style you would like, just make it something you would use to decorate a table.

I decided that since my son is having his 6th birthday next month I would make something to go on the table for his party.

Train engine measures approximately 30cm long x 10cm wide and 30cm high.

Carriage measures approximately 19cm long x 10cm wide and 12cm high.

I basically just made it by joining a series of boxes and cylinders togther. There was a fair bit of trial and error involved but I'm really happy with how it turned out and I know my boys will be thrilled with it. Keeping it out of their hands will be another story. I think after the party it will have to go up on a shelf in my sons room or it wont last five minutes.

Hop on over the the Paper Cubed (P3) challenge blog and check out the rest of the design teams wonderful creations. I hope you will be inspired to join in the fun.

The prize this month is a TIM HOLTZ STAMP SET and GRUNGE BOARD!

You have the whole month to get your creation in.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!!

Oh Michelle! This is awesome! How do you come up with these? You didn't happen to create a template did you? My son was such a train nut, he's grown out of them now, but he would still live this!
