Hello Amigos, Today i will show how a shoe-box turned into a emoji mood-changer storespace. This step-by-step tutorial will never ever let you throw your empty cartons in the bin again... Let's have a look at it.. :)
Step 1: Get Your Materials:
1. A Shoe-box
2. Table-tennis balls
3. Print out of emojis (you can save this emoji file from the image)
4. Fairy lights
5. Craft scissor/ cutter
7. A paint brush
8. Watercolours / Glass colours
Step 2: Punch Holes Into Balls
Take a sharp scissor, now hold the balls carefully punch holes on the lower body of the ball for the lights to plug-in.
Step 3: Painting the Balls
Paint the balls with the mixed shade of lemon yellow and chrome yellow hue using the brush.
QUICK TIP: You can use water-based glass colours of shade golden yellow. You can directly apply the colour on the ball without using a brush.
Step 4: Air-dry Balls
You can use old straws in a vertical bin to hang balls for drying faster.
Step 5: Making Space for Balls
Meanwhile, as the balls dry, we will draw circles on the inner lid of your shoe-box. Based on the size of your box you can plan on how many emojis you would need to draw.
The box i chose can comfortably have 7 emojis placing 4 in the first row and 3 in the second row.
After tracing out circles, grab a cutter and cut them out.
Step 6: Cutting Emojis Out
This is time-taking task, you would need patience to cut out the emojis from the print out. And, secure them.
You can also use a permanent marker to draw emojis directly on balls, but cutting them out from prints sounds easier. Isn't it ?
Step 7: The Fun Part
Before anything else, if your shoe-box has any letters or images on it you can paint the surface or stick some plain paper.
Now, get glue and stick the emoji cut-outs onto balls. Stick them carefully in the right proportion.
And, using Glue-gun secure these lively emoji balls on the lid of shoe-box.
Step 8: Placing the Lights
Now, take a bunch of 3/4 lights and insert them into holes underneath the emoji balls.
After having placed all the lights into place. Take a chart paper of required size and glue on the inner lid hiding the wires of fairy lights.
Step 9: Storespace
And finally, You can store your stationery,sunglasses and many more in your emoji mood-changer box. :)
