Hello fellow Crafty People! :-D
When Adela, the magnificent Queen of all things 3-dimensional
asked if I would guest-host for the Paper Craft Planet 3D challenge,
I was honoured (and thrilled to get back to making something 3D!)
I hope you can play along!
...It's an empty ribbon spool
made to look like a antique ribbon.
But the 'little kid part' is the secret compartment:
You: "Open it up, Mum!"
Mom: "Huh?.... Ouuuu, jewelery!"
2) Upload your project to Paper Craft Planet.
3) Be sure to use this challenge code: 3d161
so that we can see what you've made!
If you'd like to make a hidden ribbon spool box of your own
please feel free to use these
printable labels that I made to share with you...

this label base, this label decoration & this free font.
If you'd like to see how I made this ribbon spool box,
there's a detailed tutorial here on my personal blog:
Hope you can join us to make something 3D that is
recycled or round!
You are just way over the top fabulous! Such a gorgeous gift and so appropriate for Earth Day! Love your work, Mel!
Thank you Mel for this project...I love it!!
This is amazing Mel. How beautifully this turned out, and we could all use a little secret hiding place...and to have one so elegant is all the more better! Thanks so much for this tutorial Mel!
That is such a cute idea. I have an empty cardboard spool on my desk just waiting to be altered. I would like to use it as a gift box too, so will eventually be giving this challenge a go :)
Thank You so much, Gals! I haven't made anything 3D in ages, so it was a blast. Hope you can play along. :-D
Super cute project, Mel...an a very original idea too. I've never seen anything quite like it.
Thanks for including the free template for us to play along.
What a beautiful project! Thanks for sharing, and also for the free templates! You are amazing!
