Step 1: Sketch Design
After deciding on the design, I traced it out on baking paper, drew the rest of the shape freehand, fitting into the small piece of cardboard I had found and cut it out.
This design is suitable for smaller pieces of cardboard. The two halves can then be put together if you cannot find a larger piece of cardboard.
I cut out the centre for an uneven shelf level to add a bit of dynamic to the final appearance.
Cut three frames for shelf support and one silhouette backing. Only cut struts for two inside frames. They are cut half-way.
