This was also for the eight year old, and the ONLY thing he wanted for his birthday was a telescope, so I knew I had to make this space themed. He wants to study the stars, as he told us, and I used a cute cardstock from DCWV All About Boys for the base of the box. The strips on top are scraps from the robot easle card in the last post, and the pieces on the inside are a loose sheet from Joann's. The telescope and rocket ship are from Lettering Delights Outer Space simple shapes, and the star buttons are from Joann's. To make the telescope 3-D, I cut three of them, and then took scissors to create small tabs to connect them together at the top. Making it stand was not esay, but I took glue dots, rolled them up, and stuck the leg of the telescopes into the glue ball, then stuck it to the box. There was a lot of improvising here, and I still do not know how I pulled this one off!! LOL.
Anyway, thanks for visiting today!
