Happy Camper Valentine Card Box
Okay, I admit it. I totally have camper on the brain. I created Camper Potholders, Camper Ornaments, and now I have put together a Happy Camper Valentine Card Box using recycled cardboard and scrapbooking odds and ends.
I made this with Valentines Day in mind, but you know what? It is going to be a cool decoration for my real life camper. Do you want to know how to make one of your very own?
Draw out the outline of a camper. Basically, it is an oval with a wheel at the bottom. Cut it out, and then cut several strips of cardboard that measure 3 in width.
Assemble the camper using hot glue. (You can find more detailed instructions on the link below). Cut a rectangle of cardboard to be the "stand". Cut a small triangle of cardboard to keep the stand erect and glue both into place as shown above.
Be sure to cut a hole in the top for cards. My website also details how to make a cute door in the back to retrieve your cards.
Full assembly instructions can be found at the link below.
Scrapbooking papers, fabric trim, rick rack, buttons and ribbon help to create the unique decor of the camper. This pretty little camper is perfect for Valentine cards, but it can also be used as a bank, or just a decoration for the house. I plan on storing my receipts in mine. It will be the perfect addition to my real life camper!
