How to make volumetric digit of 4 for the birthday

This beautiful tutorial shows how you can make the number 4 for your child’s birthday by yourself.

To do this, you do not need to have special skills and skills, you only need a desire, a great mood, the necessary materials and 18-20 hours of free time πŸ™‚

 

To make a figure, we need:

  • cardboard;
  • pencil;
  • ruler;
  • Painting tape;
  • hot glue;
  • scissors;
  • stationery knife;
  • small rope;
  • wooden brusochki;
  • 3 rolls of corrugated paper (I have Italian, with a density of 180 g, 558 tons).

To begin with, we will make the skeleton of our figure πŸ™‚ The photo below shows all the dimensions. I have a template on the most common cardboard. The very same figure I make of three-layer cardboard of high quality (since I lease them and need them to serve as long as possible). But the usual cardboard box will do πŸ™‚

We cut out 2 such blanks (the front and the underside side) and the sides 10 cm thick.

Before you start to collect the skeleton of a figure, on 1 piece from the workpieces we make holes with an awl or a small screwdriver and pull out a small rope, which then will serve as a handle! With the handle is very convenient. You can freely transfer the finished digit without crushing the pound. And even during a photo shoot, you can hang it on the wall πŸ™‚

We collect the skeleton with the help of paint tape. Joints from the inside must be smeared with hot glue!

Then we glue brusochki, we weight a tail and a back of our four. In this respect, figure 4 is the most difficult in manufacturing, since it is necessary that it stably stands on one leg and does not fall over the nose. For weighting, you can also use racks or marlbs, or maybe you’ll come up with something else πŸ™‚

Not all master classes write about hot glue, many are limited to paint tape. However, I strongly advise from all sides, in all the cracks to fill the glue, to press down all the joints – it will stay firmly πŸ™‚

The base will be glued at the very last moment, when the figure will be almost completely zadekorirovana.

It’s a view from the wrong side. Without a reason, the nose is still falling.

Next, I will decorate the joints. To do this, cut out a strip of paper 2 cm thick and stretch it properly.

Glue on hot glue πŸ™‚

It is also necessary to glue the inside of the figure with paper. And that’s what we got πŸ™‚

When the frame is ready – we begin to prepare the balls. Take the paper, cut it into strips 5 cm wide. Pretty stretch them and cut them into squares of 5 x 5 cm.

We will glue the technique in the technique. Surely everyone already knows what and how. But just in case, I’ll show πŸ™‚
Take a pencil and wrap around it our box, like this.

The result is a pound πŸ™‚ Apply to the tip of a drop of hot glue and glue it to the figure.

Almost the entire figure we pasted with poundies 5 x 5 cm. A bottom and left bottom side with 4 Γ— 4 cm pound.

When the figure is almost ready, glue the base on the hot glue! The photo shows how I weighted him.

We glue the leg of the figure with the pound. And decorate the back of the figure. I just pasted paper.

And another such moment, 2 marbles is not accidental. The finished figure continued to fall treacherously to the nose. The conclusion is that it is necessary to weight the back better and take heavier bars / slats. By 4 there are almost no master classes, so I had to do it by trial and error. So, these two pebbles cool me out: πŸ™‚ I glued them to the hot glue and voila, the figure took a steady vertical position.

I hope that my master class will be useful to you. Try it, experiment it and you will succeed!

Immediately I apologize if something is poorly explained. It’s pretty hard to convey all the moments in the photo, maybe something missed. There will be questions – ask, I’ll be happy to answer πŸ™‚
