Wishing Well Instructions -3 D Papercraft

Wishing Well
Wishing well
My dear blogger friend Jessica is celebrating her blogversary with a blog hop. Its the first hop I am part of and so pretty nervous about everything!!This 3D Papercraft wishing well is inspired by a fantastic wishing well Jessica had made for her sisters wedding .
I was undecided whether to leave the wishing well as it was or to make it into a flower-vase for punchcraft flowers.
Punchcraft Flowers
I used thick 3 D reflective paper and corrugated paper to make this wishing well 
Wishing well
How to make a  3 d Papercraft wishing well 
Make the cylindrical body of the wishing well :Score a thick sheet of paper as shown.[I used a scorpal which is my fav tool for 3 D papercrafts!]
 Snip off small triangles on this flap.Roll this strip of card and stick to make the  cylindrical body of the wishing well
Wishing Well 
Fold over the wedges of the flap as shown.Trace the outline on card and cut out the circle base for your wishing well.Stick the circle base to the cylindrical body using glue and sticky tape[using sticky tape helps save time]. 
Wishing Well 
Make pillars of your wishing well
3 D Papercraft Wishing Well 
Roll paper around a pencil [serves as a mold only] and stick with sticky tape or glue.You can then remove your pencil .Cut off excess length of your paper roll .Line with pretty paper and stick to the base of your wishing well.Similar paper rolls are used to make the central cross bar and handle of the wishing well 
Make the roof of your wishing well
Wishing Well 
Fold thick cardstock in half and lay over your wishing well as shown to decide how large you want the roof to be.
Make supports for the roof of your wishing well
The roof support is triangular in shape and the sloping sides measure an inch less than the roof slope.
Score 0.5inch down the card stock,turn 90 degrees and score again at 0.5 inch as shown. Mark equal distances[mine was 9.5cm] on the 2 scored lines and join to get the triangular support of the roof of your wishing well.
Wishing Well 
This is the diagrammatic representation of the triangular roof support of the wishing well.
Wishing well
Cut off excess card stock.Cut  0.5 inch of one of the scored lines at the apex of the triangular support as indicated. Fold on the scored lines. Stick the flap at the apex and your triangular roof support is ready.Stick the supports on either side of the roof as shown.

Wishing Well 
Stick the paper roll pillars on the inside of the roof supports as shown.Ignore the different color paper roll on the top as its just part of my corrective measure for having misjudged the height of my wishing well!
Wishing well
This photo shows the roof of the wishing well.

Wishing well 
Stick paper rolls covered with pretty paper between the pillars to make a cross bar. [The shiny paper on the pillars and roof support are from Jovita] I also stuck 2 paper rolls in a  right angle to make the handle of the wishing well.
Wishing well
The tiny bucket is just a cone made from paper and a golden chenille stem threaded through holes punched on the rim.
I used shimmery white paper to make some punchcraft roses.
Punchcraft Flowers
Making the wishing well hardly took time but I spent all week making the punchcraft flowers!

  55. Sonia, this is beautiful! The flowers, and the colors are gorgeous! I saw a pre-made wishing well to purchase from an online store, however, it was located in Australia..the shipping would have cost me more than the product. Now I can make my own from your tutorial. Thank you for the inspiration. It has been a pleasure being in the blends hop with you;)
