Club Scrap Navigation Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Club Scrap Blog Hop featuring this month's kit, Navigation. If you arrived here from Annette's Blog, then you are in the right place. If not, check out Karen's post over at Club Scrap for a complete list of participating blogs.

I found some adorable little book boats on Pinterest and thought they would be fun to create using the Navigation kit.

The boat's hull was made using a template found HERE.

Let's get started.

1. Print the template onto copy paper and lay onto a Club Scrap Pizza Box lid.

2. Cut along the lines of the template with a craft knife or heavy duty craft blade.

3. Make score lines using the knife being careful not to cut all the way through the Pizza Box.

4. Remove some of the corrugated cardboard from the tab areas to eliminate some of the bulk.

5. Print the template again but this time onto Navigation Rust Plain paper.

6. Create two sets of the sides and of the stern.

7. Add Navigation Greeting UM stamp images in Gold Metallic Ink to the outside sides and stern pieces. Adhere to the boat using Club Scrap Bookbinding Glue. Allow to dry and then continue to build the boat's hull.

9. Roll a piece of Pizza Box into a squared tube to form the mast base as shown above.

10. Cover the top of the tube with stamped Rust paper.

11. Tightly roll 1x10" Dk. Green print into a mast. Secure with Bookbinding Glue.

12. Cut a hole in the top and bottom center of the tube. Insert the mast and attach the tube to the hull with glue.

13. Attach Tan paper tabs to the bow and stern corners. Distress the edges with Earth Ink.

14. Free hand cut sail shapes out of two Green Fiber prints. Trace the shapes onto the same paper to form the opposite side of the sails and attach together with Bookbinding Glue.

15. While the paper is still pliable, mold the sails into shape.

16. Cut four .75x1.25" tabs from the open book image on the Green Fiber prints. Attach the sails onto the mast using the tabs as shown.

17. Add a piece of fiber for the flag at the top of the mast with Bookbinding Glue.

Here is the finished boat.
