I recently got through to the last Terabyte of my hard drive and came across 16-year photos (January 2000). My godchild was often visiting us and we made the most amazing things together. I would like to introduce you to a craft project.
A car garage from a cigar box
- empty cigar box with sturdy closure ca.20x20cm
- (ask at the kiosk or tobacco shop)
- color printers
- Playmobil or other characters
- Cars and accessories from the toy box
- empty toilet paper roll
for the facade. With a photo editing program, the items are zoomed to the correct size for the wooden box. Then everything is printed out, cut out and glued on. The background gives a great depth effect of the car garage. A piece of the toilet paper roll is cut off and serves as a car lift. A photograph of the child in matching size makes it even more individual! Be creative!
The game boxes are made quickly and give children a lot of fun, and they are also ideal for traveling. The motif has no limits. For example, a mini-shop, a bakery, a Wichtelversteck with much moss, a bear cave, a stable for stable animals. a pond or pool (to cover blue paper with cling film mirrors almost like real) or maybe a doctor’s office or police station?
