父の日カード

A Steampunk Insect Cage!

I made a Father’s Day card using my favourite insect die from Sizzix (Tim Holtz).

The thought process for this project went something like this:

Insects → summer vacation → school project → insect collection → insect cage

It started with the idea that I wanted to make a three-dimensional insect cage. However, when it came to shaping with paper, it was a different story, and in the end it was far from the square bamboo insect cage that I first imagined.

It is a steampunk insect cage!

Sizzix (Tim Holtz)のお気に入りの虫のダイを使って父の日のカードを作りました。

虫ー夏休みー研究ー昆虫採集ー虫籠

てな感じでイメージは立体的な虫籠を作りたいと思ったのが始まりでした。

でもいざ紙で形にするとなると話は別で四苦八苦、結局最初にイメージした四角い竹の虫籠とはかけ離れたものになってしまいました。

スチームパンクの虫籠です。

It can be used as a hanging decoration.
