Valentine Bot Box
Curiosity Cut It Set
Accordion Fold Rosettes Cut It Project
SNF Simon Says Font
Shoe boxes (I used smaller kids shoe boxes)
gesso or paint primer
Decide where you want your valentine opening and cut those holes in your boxes. I cut my hole in the top center where the antennae is glued to, and a 2nd hole in the bottom box on the back. Then proceed by applying gesso or primer to your shoe boxes. If you are using shoe boxes with a sheen, a spray oil based primer would work better for you.
Cut out and assemble the robot pieces from the Curiosity Cut It Set. For the face, you can cut it out like it is, which will cut the square with the nose and mouth, or to save paper you can bring the item in Make-The-Cut and break it apart (Right click>shape magic >control B). This enables you to delete the face and eye holes and just cut the nose and mouth.
Accordion Fold Rosette 08. And brought into Make-the-Cut pasting it twice, then flipped the second one, so I had a mirror image. (Right click>shape magic >control F).
Make-The-Cut. I created mirror images of any pieces I would see the back on, like the antennae, hands and knob ear things. I also added an additional little rectangle to the bottom of the antennae and knob ears so that I had a flap to fold over and glue, like shown. I also added little hearts to the antennae and meter arrow on the front.
Boom-De-Yada Cut It Firework Project. I sized the strip so that it was about 1.25 inches tall and 10 inches long. I cut 4 this size for the arms and legs.
