3D Baby Carriage With a Mini Tag Album

Good morning, friends!

This is Jasleen here, and I'm back with my inspiration project for this month's baby-themed challenge- Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. :)

You can view the challenge details HERE.

I've made a 3D Baby Carriage along with a mini tag album using the lovely collection of 6 by 6  Papeicious patterned papers- Little Star. Here's how it looks :-

Do you want to know how I made this? Well, it's pretty easy and you do not require any dies to make this carriage. I'm sharing a picture tutorial to help you understand the making process. It's quite a long and picture-heavy post. So, I hope you enjoy ! :)

Step 1.

So I recycled this discarded cereal box to make it. Just cut it out flat with the help of a sharp pair of scissors.

Step 2:-

Then, I drew two circles, using the edge of a round utencil as a stencil. If you have a circle die, a  compass, you can definitely use that or just about anything circular. We need two circle cut outs which would make the sides of our baby buggy.

Step 3:-

This is what we need to have before assembling our buggy- two circles(mine were approximately 5 inches in diameter), four tiny circles(for making the wheels) and a long strip(measuring about 8 inches long and 2 inches wide)

Step 4:-

Cut out the same from the patterned papers as well, and keep in mind, we need four large circles from patterned paper, since we want the carriage to be covered with PP on the outside as well as on the inside. Stick the patterned paper on the inner side, do not stick the outer one yet. You will know the reason for this in the following steps. Stick your choice of PPs on the long strip and the four little circles as well.
 Cut out a quarter portion each from both the large circles, as shown in the pic.

Step 5 :-

Now, it's time to assemble the two circles together with the help of the strip. As you can see in the picture, I scored the long strip at about half an inch from both the sides, and made small horizontal cuts over both the edges, so that it curves and sticks over the circular edges with ease.

Step 6:-

After we are done sticking the strip along the two circles(It doesn't look very neat uptil this stage, but don't worry, that would be sorted )  stick the patterned paper on the outer sides.

Step 7:-

Now it's time to make the fan-shaped 'roof' of the buggy. For this, I used a 6 inches length and 2.5 inches width  of patterned paper and scored at 0.5 inches along the width. I think the above picture gives you an idea.
We need two of these for the two sides of the buggy.

Step 8 :-

Now, stick the four smaller circles to make the wheels. Embellish the little carriage with your favorite trinkets. I embellished it with laces, ribbons, bows, pearls and a wooden star embellishment. :)

Sharing a few pictures of the mini album it holds :-

 This tag album was made with the help of  die-cut cards by Simple stories-Hello baby and Papericious 6 by 6 paper pad- Little Star from the store.

I've added a shaker element with colorful sequins on each tag and there's a pocket behind each die-cut card to insert a photo. I liked keeping my embellishments to a minimum for this mini album. That cute baby footprints Washi tape is also from the Lulupu store. There are some lovely designs of washi available HERE.

Okay, so that's it. I know it was a long one this time. I hope you are not bored.:P
 Do let me know how you liked this. I always look forward to what you have to say about my work. :)
