Carousel



Hey guys, I did a guest post at my friend Zografia's blog " made by Bisozozo ".  She is a wonderful person and you must check out her blog she makes very Stylish stuff from jewelry to lamp or anything!


I'm excited to share this post both because I did some recycling and I made something useful!  We have all seen Carousels, they are so fascinating, shiny and fun to ride but this not just a Carousel it is also a Jewelry storage system.


First I decided how I wanted to construct the cardboard Carousel shape then I incorporated jewelry storage ideas into it.


At the bottom it has a round box to store jewelry ..It has flowers on one side and butterflies on the other..



Then the top part can also be removed, I made it in a way so that I can keep my Bangals here.  As the unicorns are attached to the top part of the Carousel, bangals can be easily added or taken out without any hassle




So here are the construction details: 

Bottom part - first I created a round box and it's lid  

Middle part - Take a cylinder shape (I recycled one from foil paper packaging) make a 1 inch slit on it. Bend the sides and glue them on the lid of the box so as to attach the cylinder and the lid together. 

To cover it and secure the cylinder shape in place I glued a cardboard circle , with a hole in the middle to slide through the cylinder, on top of the lid.

Top part - I cut out a hexagon shape from cardboard, glued 6 ribbons on it and on top of it I glued a cone with a bead on it. This time again  I kept a hole in the hexagon shape to fix the cylinder  there and then I started decorating it ... 




I had an amazing time designing, creating and decorating this project and I hope you enjoyed viewing it !!!

Thank you!
