How to make paper and cardboard stand-organizer “Elephant” for the tablet

paper and cardboard stand-organizer “Elephant” for the tablet:
On our desktop, where the whole family is engaged in creativity, are always accessories. One of them – the tablet, usually show some series, a regular review of interesting gizmos, workshop or just playing music. In this master class you will learn how to create a stand for such a satellite creativity with his own hands.
So, let’s begin!

Required Material:
beer board thickness of 1.5 mm, a sheet of 250 × 300 mm (I had two sheets of 250 × 200 mm at hand);
beautiful sheets of paper, one of at least 9 “x9” (229 × 229 mm) and 2 A4 paper (I used 3 sheets of paper for scrapbooking 305 × 305 mm);
adhesive (for example, “Moment of Crystal”);
scissors;
line;
stick to scoring.
Additionally, to facilitate the manufacturing process, can be used:
board Creasing (preferably inch as customized sizes just under a);
model knife;
mat for cutting;
metal ruler;
plotter.
Now we need the sketches “Elephant.” To maintain the correct dimensions, the image should be printed on A4.

The first two designs for the board – this is the framework of our stand. Printed, pasted on a sheet of cardboard prepared and cut. it is not necessary to cut out on the first page of the ear at the elephant, it is there to guide. We cut out the details of the plotter. But there is a nuance, plotter companies Silhouette can cut through the cardboard beer 1.5 mm, even a knife for cutting deep. I cut the usual knife to the maximum depth, then dorezayu modeling knife.

On the second sheet of the boxes are arranged to the last detail. In the sidewalls have top and bottom. When cutting, it is desirable to label them, then to avoid confusion (see. Photo). The arrow indicates where the top.
The remaining two files can be printed directly on a beautiful piece of paper, which will hide the frame of cardboard. It is necessary to bear in mind that you need to print on the back side of the paper. And also cut out. The dashed line, in the diagram designated fold line.
The first step will collect elephant ears. I prefer them to do different in color from the base color stand to emphasize their presence.

Apply glue and you can use an old credit card to evenly distribute 🙂 Ready ears are set aside, they give us is no longer needed. And go to the sidewalls of an elephant. First glue outer sides, those with the ear hole. By the way, about this hole … You can not cut, but I cut, because then it is easier to glue themselves exactly ears.
We give a little dry, and can be glued inside. Bends by first fold lines on each of the paper components. Do not forget that should have two mirrored parts, but not the same (see. Photo).
Now you can paste them. The adhesive can be applied to cardboard, guided by the slots for the side walls.

Then start collecting box. Glue all the pieces to one of the elephant’s side. First the sides and then the bottom. All parts have to enter the end of the slots.

The attentive reader must have noticed the mistake. I became interested in photographing process and mixed direction sides. Later I will tell you what it will turn back to me. After we have collected this part of the box, it is desirable to quickly paste the second side of the elephant. The fact is that when the adhesive dries thoroughly, we will not be able to correct the symmetry of the sides. And this, in turn, will affect the stability of the finished stand. The slots for the connection, I specifically made with a small gap, this will allow us to align with the need of an elephant at this stage of assembly.
After a complete frame assembly elephant set on a flat surface. And make sure that all the legs and trunk rest on this surface.

If all is well, let it dry. So that will not shift anything in the further work.
Dried up? Now you can paste the elephant ears.

Next we will refine a box for small items. I used paper for scrapbooking 305h305 mm, left of it are two trim width of just over 3 “(about 8 cm).
I have already said before, the size of a box fitted with an inch, as we have in the presence of plaque for scoring from Martha Stewart.Dimensions in millimeters will be put in brackets, they can be rounded up to integers.
We need a long strip of exactly 3 “(76.2 mm) and long 10⅜” (263,5 mm). This will be the outer part of the box. Folds will be from any edge on ½ “(12,7 mm), 3⅝” (76,8 mm), 6¾ “(153,1 mm) and 9⅞” (229,5 mm).

Scoring can be done without the board on the mat for cutting

Corners need to slightly undercut, at about a 45 ° (cf.. Photo).

As a result, should get a band, wrap the entire outside of the box and curled inside edges … I recommend to try it before gluing. If everything is exactly the size, the band will go tight enough to not work nor any gaps. After that you can be glued.

At the edges, the corners glued strips is recommended to take a stick to creasing, or something similar, to press tightly against the edge to the frame.

In any case, you can check the structure for alignment. If everything is in order, then put off to the side of an elephant and begin to make the inside, a decorative box. Here we need a sheet of 9 “x9” (228.6 x 228.6 mm), I will use the same sheet skrapbumagi, as well as for the whole elephant. Cut the desired size and outline the fold line at a distance of 3 “(76.2 mm).

Then we put on them and well ironed

As a result of these steps, the next work piece should get:

Now we make four incisions, like the following picture, so you can collect the box.

Assembled without glue box you need to try.

It also should include tight, but still go. After a successful fitting can be glued. As it is not extremely important, but I prefer to do all four sides equally (see. Photo).

Well and still collected a box to paste in our elephant. Glue is applied to the inside of the carcass. Otherwise, if you put glue on just glued box when installing it in place all of the adhesive remains on the outside and the risk to stain the whole elephant.

Now that’s what caused my inattention. Remember, I mixed up the direction of the sidewalls of the box? So, these walls have turned lower decorative portion and protruding edge. I had to trim it in place, and it is not very convenient and turned koryavenko. In the photo seen below, by how much.

Sam elephant is ready, you can exploit
Phew .. It seems to have coped. I hope that someone will come in handy. And if you like it, put the Huskies and subscribe. For this single respect, and a ray of goodness in your face
