Punched xylophone /Video tutorial

Pin It
Hi all, i have a cute little punch project for you to try....I was wondering how i could use my word window punch and came across a pic of a kids xylophone and it bought back a lot of memories of when our kids were little and had a ball with one of these, rainbow colours and all!! perfect project for the word window punch. so lets get started.

you'll need to punch 6 word window shapes from stampin up, in different colours.
2 strips 1/8" x 3 1/2" in black as the rails of the xylophone.
One 5/8" circle punch and a strip 1/8" x 2 1/2 " for the stick.
black or brown ink to add some shading.
and some foam tape.

To start line up all the word window punch outs miss the first one and mark a line angling down. you will use this as a guide to cut new ends.

Next place each marked punch out back into the word window punch to the pencil mark and punch a new shorter end.

Ink the edges to add some shading and assemble your pieces gluing down the black rails spacing the larger end to match your largest punch out and the thinner end to match your smallest punch out and attach each with foam tape. Glue the circle to the stick and add your finished punchart to a card. so quick and easy...hope you have enjoyed this.

I'm also having fun making the video tutorials and finally but slowly learning how to load them all on without hassling our teenage son! because i know thats how i learn best by actually seeing someone else do there craft. so I'll post a video here of how i made this...enjoy ...Valita

and a last thought

The character of even a child
can be know by the way he acts
whether what he dose is pure and right
Proverbs 20:11
