Detailed master class on making a baby stroller out of cardboard

When I came up with the idea to make a baby carriage out of cardboard, I naturally went to the Internet at least idea as a maximum for master-class. However, nothing I saw did not match my idea of how should look like a miniature carriage. In my opinion, they all lacked a bit of realism. And so was born my first pram

  • Cardboard or thick paper – 2 sheets of A4.
  • Cotton swab.
  • The universal glue (suitable for paper, fabric and other decorative elements, for example, "liquid nails").
  • Ribbons, lace, flowers, buttons, in General, any decorative elements.
  • Scissors.
  • X-ACTO knife or cutter.
  • Pencil.
  • Ruler.
  • Compass.
  • Hole punch (but not necessarily).

To begin print the template if there are printer, transfer the pattern on paper using the dimensions shown on it. The lines circled in bold cut lines, thin lines bend and support.

Now transfer the pattern on a piece of cardboard. It is better to first cut the workpiece, and then to place on the worksheet, so the sheets come in different sizes. I put a template with no writing
gel pen to cardboard on the left of the groove, and not traces of pencil as in photo 3. I have all fit on 1 sheet.

Cut with scissors or a box cutter. Here is what it should look (photo 5). Now the elements that lie on the right side of the line on photo 5, you want to duplicate, it is necessary in order to consolidate some part of the structure. The handle of the stroller can not duplicate the middle, and make two of the same item - do the handles as in picture 6. Here go the second sheet of cardboard (I mean the A4).

Elements that lie to the left of the scissors in the photo 6, the bonding. I cut the blanks slightly larger than necessary, and trim the excess after gluing the two halves, so be careful.

Collect box, as shown in photo 8, 9, 10.

If we're going to decorate the box inside, got to do it now.

Take a cotton swab, cut to 6 cm, and make 2 marks at a distance of 0.5 cm from the edges (photo 13), so that the middle is 5 cm Incision to the levels in three or four places on each side and open like a flower (photo 14,15).

A hole punch make the holes in the elements for a handlebar that will be on the inner side and glue as shown in photo 17. If there is no hole puncher, you can cut with a utility knife small squares. I additionally put on the handle decorative flowers, which then closed the opening.

On photo 18 the hole is not covered, you can leave. Photo 19 - covered by a flower.

Assemble the hood as shown in photo 20, please note that the widest part of the pattern needs to be outside as it is on photo 21.

Collect the upper part of the stroller. First, fix the hood, then the handle at a distance of 3.5 cm from the edge of the box (photo 22), can be directly decorated.

Now collect the frame. I use skripochka as photo 25, to not hold hands surfaces. It is very convenient, while some parts are glued together, you can do other
. To get exactly to glue the side pieces of the frame, they can be put on top of the upper or lower part of the frame, as in photo 26. STICK TO the FRAME is NOT NECESSARY! Just put on top, to get the desired angle.

While glued frame, decorate the wheels, then glue the frame to the top of the stroller so that part of the frame with the hole on the bottom (photo 28 it is at the top
), it we tape the wheels.

Wheel glue in the last turn, as if they priklause a little uneven, the carriage will be crooked and will be quickly to fix it. Final touch - decorate the lower part of the box to cover the frame and the attachment of the handle.

Make beautiful photo and enjoy the result
I hope that my master class will be useful for You.
