Dad’s Truck

Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday!  This Week, 3d14, is to make a truck.  I perused the internet & found that Siegmeier had a template here, which I printed out on scrap paper & then simplified to use on my metallic Blue paper.  I completely ran out of super sticky tape, so I used mini glue dots.  Kinda’ looks like it’s riveted, eh?  

I added a coupon in the back, since this might make a cute father’s day gift.  

That’s all.  It’s just a tiny truck, that my middle son asked why I didn’t make working wheels.  Sigh.  Always there’s critique in the house.  

The papers are from Heather’s stamping Haven, here in Ottawa, & it’s just the prettiest metallic paper you’ve ever seen & I can’t photographic it worth a hill of beans.  

Used:  Blue, Navy, & Copper Metallic Papers from Heather’s Stamping Haven in Ottawa, Copper Embossing Powder, Versa Mark Ink, Create A Coupon, Uniball White Gel Pen, Sizzlits Script Alphabets Dies used in Sizzix Machine, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Sizzlits Tag Punch, Buttons & Glitter Embellishments from Dollar Store. Rhinestone Brad (SU), Circle Punches, Vellum CS: for the windows, that you can’t see :)

Pin It!

  • omgosh! How CUTE!!! Love your truck!!! thanks for sharing the link!

  • What a cute project! Oh, and I cannot believe how FAR the beach is from you! That is amazing! I’ve never lived more than 5 hours from a beach! I wish the beaches here were nicer because we love the beach, but they tend to be crowded when it’s warm and pretty dirty. They just dump trash off the shore and act surprised when it shows up all over the beach. It’s really a shame.

    Wow this is really cool and you are very clever. Can you give me an idea of how big you blew this template up so I can try it out. Thanks for sharing.

    Hiya Deb,

    I just sized it in my printer so that it would fit an 8 1/2 x 11″ sheet of computer paper. I was a bit pixily, but it didn’t matter because it’s a guideline. I don’t print the design out on the the Patterned Paper, I just double side tape the computer paper to the DSP or PP & then cut out. That’s what works for me.

    Hope this helps,

  • Wow! I saw the template on PCP and followed the signs to you! Finding you all over the web, lol… your blog!
