To print the template, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above). Print and cut out the template. If printing on standard 8-1/2” x 11” paper, multiple pieces of paper will be required. Glue the pieces together to create the correct size to fit on a 12” x 12” piece of craft paper. If the geo shape will be hung, punch the holes shown on the template.
Place the template on the backside of your craft paper and trace the outer edge. Cut out along the pencil lines.
Following the template, place the ruler on the piece you cut out and score the areas indicated as fold lines (dotted lines are fold lines) using a bone folder.
Fold along all the score lines. Apply glue to the tabs and secure the tabs inside the geo shape to hold in place.
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
2" flat wood slat
Two 1/2" square wood dowel
Two 3" flat wood slat
Paint: orange, navy & gold
Hot glue gun & glue sticks
Wood cutting tool
Cut one of the 3" wide wood dowels to create two pieces roughly 8" long, with one end straight and the other at an angle to create the point of the arrow. Paint these two pieces along with the other 3" wood slat navy.
Glue the two cut pieces together to form a V overlapping the tip.
Cut a point at the end of the 2" slat the same angle as the arrowhead created in step 1. Paint gold.
Cut six dowels 6" long from the 1/2" dowels. Paint orange
Lay the navy 3" slat horizontal on work surface; glue the arrowhead to one end.
Glue the orange dowel pieces to the other end to create the arrow’s tail.
Place the gold 2" slat over the arrow’s tail and head and secure in place with hot glue.
Cross Stitch Canvas
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
16” x 16” canvas
Yarn: orange, navy, gold
Lightly mark across the top and bottom and both sides every 1” on the ruler. Create a grid by connecting the dots lightly with pencil.
Punch holes with an awl at the designated points shown on the pattern guide.
Erase the pencil lines from the canvas.
Using the large needle, sew through the holes creating an “X” or large cross-stitch. Follow the pattern guide to create the pattern shown using the yarn colors designated. Once each color has been used, tie off the yarn to secure the stitches.
