With each new blog post, I share a new project. And this time it's no different. I decided to keep with the classic vintage theme and created a piano from Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Wavebox template. I downloaded the template and traced it onto a piece of brown cardstock. I separated the wave by cutting it from the box template.
I then cut a 1.5 inch strip of cardstock, scored it in the middle (lengthwise) and 0.5 inch on each side and attached it to the bottom of the box to form the keyboard.
I used the Cameo to cut the chords for the keyboard. This was cut on a piece of white and black paper.
This was then attached to brown cardstock. The legs were made by rolling 4 pieces of brown paper and glueing it to the bottom of the box. To make the lip prop, I cut a 2 inch piece of skewer, painted it brown and glued it to the top of the box. I then glued the lid to the lid prop. I cut a 2 inch of brown cardstock, rounded the edges and glue it to the front of the box to form the music desk.
To make the piano stool, I used a Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Matchbox template set. I traced the template to a piece of brown cardstock and made the legs using a piece of skewer. The legs were painted with brown paint and glued to the bottom of the box.
I searched the internet for a Betty Boop clip art and imported this to the Silhouette Studio Software. I traced the image, used the print-n-cut feature of the software and glued the cut image to the side of the piano.
The final product:
Later this week I will be share a post on how to make a card using quilled flowers and I will share my technique for making these flowers.
Happy Monday and keep crafting!
