Step 3: Gather Materials
These are the recommended materials that you use, however, it will work with other materials if you can’t get your hands on some of these things.
Green/Gray 3D Printer Filament
Access to a 3D Printer
Green Blue, and Yellow paint
12oz soda bottle
Step 4: Begin to 3D Print Your Pieces Using the 3D Modeler You Used Earlier.
make sure to watch the printer while it works
Step 5: Take Your Foam Board and Cut Out a 7x7 Inch Piece.
use the box cutter
Step 6: Trace the Base Landscape With a Pencil

Use enough coats so it is no longer transparent.
Step 12: Glue Everything Down
Glue the bottle (AKA the “hill”), to the back left corner of the green area
Hot glue the little hills/ objects you designed and 3D printed earlier in desired pattern. (Make sure they stay on the green part of the foam board though.)
Step 13: (optional)
Cut out 3 7x7 inch squares
Paint one side light blue (Repeat for all three boards.)
Take a fluffy paintbrush, add a small amount of white paint, and dab it in a cloud-like motion.
