Free Printable Template
First Edition Pick n’ Mix 8x8 Paper Pad
Dovecraft White Card Stock, Gems
How to Make
1.Print out the free template, draw around it onto two separate sheets of Dovecraft white card stock and cut out. These two pieces will make your rocket ship!
2.Find the yellow sheet within the First Edition Pick n’ Mix 8x8 Paper Pad and place it onto your desk facing down. Take your first rocket shape, place it over your sheet, draw around it and carefully cut around the shape with a craft knife. Glue your yellow sheet onto your rocket shape.
3.Now we are going to decorate the inside of the ship. Follow the previous step and cut around a coordinating sheet of Pick n’ Mix paper. Adhere this to the front of your second, rocket ship shape.
4. Cut out a circle on the dotty Pick n’ Mix paper and glue this towards the top of your first rocket ship shape. Use the paper template to help you cut out the other elements of the rocket ship onto the foil and stripy sheets in the Pick n’ Mix pad. Adhere your decorative pieces to the front of your ship
5.Score across the line indicated on your template on the second rocket ship shape. Adhere the front and back of your rocket ship above the score line with Dovecraft Perma Fix Tape.
6.Finish by embellishing the rocket with a line of Dovecraft gems along the bottom strip at the front of your card and adhere two larger gems on either side of the strip above it.
7.To give it a sentimental touch, you could add a special photo in the window of the rocket!
We adore this card shape, especially alongside the Pick n’ Mix papers! They really are great for giving it a ‘spacey’ feel. You could even die cut an astronaut from the First Edition Space dies as shown in the picture to put inside your card!
