Sandy's Robot Projects

Some more projects with boy appeal from Sandy using Best Creation's Robot- a collection full of spaceships, robots and planets.

First up is the Rocket treat-holder, created as a tribute to all those inspiring NASA spaceshuttle missions. The happy little recipient spent a fun half hour in the garden attempting to launch it at the papayas in my garden.

Next is the Blast Off catch-all. I turned a staggered chipboard mini-album into this OTP project meant to be a temporary holder for a boy's things like school letters and party invitations. If you'd like to turn your album pages into an off-the-page project, here's the tutorial.

Tutorial :

  • Trace your chipboard shape onto pattern paper. Twice for each shape and cut out

  • Paint the edges of your chipboard

  • Make some 'V' tabs which will hold the chipboards together. Glue tabs to the sides of chipboard

  • Cover chipboard with pattern paper cut-outs. Glue up the tabs

  • On the longest chipboard piece, add a die-cut border to the bottom as a 'feet'

  • And there you have it - a completed catchall

  • Best Creation Robot Supplies : Best Creation Robot (Gearing Up, Alien Shuttle, Boys and Their Toys,Expression chipboard, Combo stickers, Element stickers, 6x6 glitter pad), Best Creation glitter dot paper BGP215, Clear Scraps Mini Album,


    1. Sandy that is a beaut idea to use the album as that holdall! Love the colours.

    2. These items are great. I particularly like the holder.

    3. Nice! Fantastic papers too. The Glitter is sooooo great 'cos it doesn't come off on your hands!

    4. Fab projects Sandy, both would be very popular with any little boy!

    5. Clever ideas Sandy. The papers are so cheerful and eye-catching.
