Pram Shaped Box tutorial

Pram Shaped Box
When my little one saw the Pram shaped box I had posted yesterday, she also wanted to make one so we made this pink and purple 3 D paper craft Pram
How to make a Pram or Pram shaped Box
The basic 3 D pram is surprisingly simple to make .You need just 2 large circles, 4 small circles and a rectangular card strip to join them to make a pram shaped box. 

Pram Shaped Box

Materials required to make a 3 D paper craft Pram or Pram shaped Box
Card stock- sturdy thick card works best if you want your pram to be strong enough to act as a box
Scissors and Glue- I use white glue [ Fevicol MR]
Something to make circles for the body and wheels of your paper craft pram
3 D Paper craft Pram
To make 2 large circles and 4 smaller circles, you can use
1.Saucer and bottle cap
2.Compass
3.Dies & a die cutting machine
Cut off 1/4th from your 2 large circles to get the basic shape of your pram
Pram Shaped Box tutorial
Crafting with my kiddo got  easier after I got my Big shot and we end up recycling even more as now even my little one can easily cut up boxes and thick card using the machine. Here you can see my little one using scallop circle dies and the Big Shot to recycle an old card to make her Pram!
Pram Shaped Box tutorial
To make the pram body take a strip of sturdy paper :My paper strip is 2.5 inches x 11 inches.
Width -will depend on how wide you want the box compartment to be.
Length- depends on how big your pram circle circumference is!Roughly roll it around the circumference of your pram [3/4 circle] to see if you have enough length for your pram box!
Pram Shaped Box tutorial
Score around 1/2 inch from either edge lengthwise [using a scoring tool or a blunt pen point/knife].Make zig zags on these edges as shown [no perfection needed!]
Pram Shaped Box tutorial
Fold over the zig zag teeth and apply glue on all the zig zag teeth on one edge as demonstrated by my little one!
Glue  the zig zag teeth to  the inner surface of your pram circle. This is quite easy if you have an extra pair of helping hands--you can see the tiny fingers helping to hold the zig zags as they dry !
Snip off the extra length of paper if you have more than the circumference of your pram or just bend,fold and glue it in as a horizontal shelf for your pram box.
Pram Shaped Box tutorial
Once one side has dried a bit ,apply glue on the other row of zig zag teeth and glue to the other 3/4 circle just inside the edge. Getting it perfect is tough for little ones so our Pram is not all that symmetrical but I guess the smile on a little face compensated for that!
Pram Shaped Box tutorial
Stick on the wheels on the outer surface or inner surface of the pram . Glue gently wheel by wheel so that all wheels touch the ground when the pram stands.
Pram Shaped Box tutorial
Glue card strips as shown inside the wheels to act as additional supports [ the paper wheels by themselves wont take much weight] so that it can take a bit of weight without toppling over when you put your goodies inside the pram box.
Pram Shaped Box
I didn't add a lid for this one as my daughter wanted to keep her dolly inside but attaching a lid as in my first version of the pram box just involves gluing a piece of card stock inside the pram and letting it overlap on the ledge already made.
Pram Shaped Box
I used MS punches for a lacy effect and hung a heart charm from the roof of our pram .
Pram Shaped Box
We used glittery foam flowers and butterflies again as my little one didn't want much variation from our first pram shaped box .
Pram Shaped Box
I hope you enjoyed my daughter's pink and purple overdose [her fav colors of the moment !].Do share your views as my kiddo has become quite an ardent blogger and is keen to read comments too!

  75. hello...what a wonderful creation.. can you please tell me more about die cuts and die cut machine? which one can i purchase ? from where?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Pragati you actually dont need die cutting machines to make this project and I have started using the big shot only since a couple of months. I bought the big shot from Itsy Bitsy Bangalore. Die cutting machines are fun if you are a hobby crafter and I would say extremely helpful if you are a professional crafter.
