24_Mix ‘n match pals

23 Jun

A leg from over here, an arm from over there, the head of another pal, a random body, and there you go.. mix ‘n match all the pieces to make new pals every time.

This is an easy one; there´s a lot of cutting involved so it´ll take you a couple hours

You’ll need:

_To download and print these files:

pals_1

pals_2

pals_3

_3 x A4 pieces of card, about 1mm thick (remember to recycle when posible).

_Some wrapping paper left overs (the pieces should be large enough to cover  A4  cards).  You could also use decorative paper, like the one for scrap booking.

_Circle cutter, cutter and cutting mat (or a surface to cut on)

_Ruler

_Glue stick or spray mount (the latter will make your life a bit easier)

How to make your Mix n’ match pals:

1. Print the files above. If your printer takes it, you can print straight on the card. Otherwise, print on regular paper and stick the prints on one side of the card. (I like the card to be visible in the end, so I use just enough glue/spray mount to make the prints stay while I cut and then easily remove them when I’m done)

2. Cut 3 pieces of wrapping paper about the size of an A4 card. If you have different colours of paper, cut one piece of each.

3. Stick one piece of wrapping paper on the back of each card.

4. Use your ruler and cutter to trim any bits of the wrapping paper that may have exceeded the card.

5. Cut all the shapes. If you have a circle cutter you can use it to cut the circles. The center of each circle is marked with a tiny purple “x”.

6. Peel the prints off the card.

7. Join the different pieces by the slits and that’s it! That’s the way to mix and match
