Tampereen piirtoilta huomenna klo 17.00

Jes, huomenna torstaina klo 17 lähtien piirtoiltaa Sorsapuistossa. Yritän saada jonkun varjoisan paikan jostain Tampere-talon ja kioskien välimaastosta. Mulla on kirkkaan vihreä viltti, mutta kannattaa ottaa omia pyllynalusia mukaan jos ei halua nurtsilla istua. Sekä runsaasti jotain juomista, saamme nauttia helteistä edelleen.

Jos tarvitsee minun puhelinnumeroa, sen saa kysymällä.

Edit// Ainiin jos nyt muistaisin laittaa linkin piirtoiltojen Facebook-ryhmään! https://www.facebook.com/groups/403389946437133/ Sinne kannattaa liittyä jos piirtoillat kiinnostaa. :) Siellä sovitaan uusista piirtoilloista ja niiden ajankohdista ja saa huhuilla muutenkin vaan piirtoseuraa.

Yo!! Was wondering how you made those cute stickers

I got them printed at a professional printing house as sheets and then cut each of them by hand.

Here you go, i hope this makes some sense.

First you’ll need some sturdy cardboard for the bottom of the box, and for the edges you’ll need card stock/thick paper that you can fold. I used 3mm thick cardboard for the bottom, i wanted the box to have some weight because people would be handling it. I made the edges out of 270g/m2 thick paper, it was a great opportunity to get rid of some ugly colors i wouldn’t use otherwise.

I cut the thick paper into 4 slices, each 7 cm in height. The dotted lines are where you’ll need to fold the paper. I don’t know how many good rules i broke, but i used a utility knife to get the long side folds straight. I gently drew a straight line with the knife and a ruler, taking extra care not to cut through paper.

Then i glued all the edge pieces to the bottom piece. Thinnest part of the edge paper goes under the thick cardboard. And make sure your folded flaps are pointing outwards! Like this:

After that i picked the opposite edges and began gluing them in this order:

And now you have a ready box.

I recommend using a flat brush for glue, but don’t sacrifice your best ones! I have a bunch of cheap brushes for this kind of crafting.

I can only show a picture of how i cut the fabric. I don’t know how to put that fight into words. I begun gluing it in the middle, and the edges were pure desperation: “i don’t have any idea what i am doing please help how does this work which side is up did i just cut the wrong corner off”.

Finished boxes.

Finished boxes.

I couldn’t choose just one fabric for sticker boxes, so i picked three. Actually four, but the fourth was a bit too dark so it didn’t match with the rest.

Tampereen piirtoillat

Piirtoilta huomenna maanantaina klo 17.00 lähtien Sokos hotelli Ilveksen lähellä olevilla “rappusilla”, ovat hotellilta koskelle päin. Varasuunnitelmana, jos sattuu satamaan, on ravintola 931 Kehräsaaressa. Seuraan saa liittyä myöhemminkin kuin viideltä, yleensä on se pari, kolme tuntia hujahtanut piirrellessä.

Kaikki ovat tervetulleita mukaan jos piirtäminen kiinnostaa, ei ole taitovaatimuksia eikä tarvitse tuntea ketään entuudestaan. :) Siinähän sitä samalla voi vähän tutustua ja jos ujostuttaa, niin luonnoskirjan taakse on aina hyvä piiloutua piirtämään.

Minulta saa tarkempia ohjeita paikan päälle jos tarvitsee, samoin kysymällä saa puhelinnumeron jos haluaa tietää missä päin olemme menossa.

DIY thursday night fun. I’m making new display boxes for stickers. Finncon is coming, can’t wait! I’ll be there on the artist alley with amazing arachnodentist.

Are any of my followers coming to Finncon at Jyväskylä? I know many are instead going to Animecon which is held on the same weekend in Kuopio.
