Hello Doodlebug friends. I have been planning to make this little phone for some time now but was waiting on a collection to use on it. Even though my project isn't anything to do with BBQ'S the Bar-B-Cute collection worked perfectly.
The primary colors and fun patterns are exactly what I needed to create this "Chatter Box" inspired project.
Below is a quick look at how it came together.
  • To build the telephone a paper mache box,  foam board, and chipboard was used. It's basically two boxes stacked on top of each other.
  •  The dial was made in two parts. The top section was created and cut on the Silhouette from layers of chipboard. The second layer was cut from a layer of foam board.
  •  A handset was cut from 1" thick foam board and then covered with chipboard. 
  • Some wood pieces including 2-inch wood wheels were used to complete the look.
I paired 3 patterned papers from the collection with some coordinating petite prints. For the star die-cuts, I used a Doodle Cut die.  For the dial, round sprinkles, numbered with vinyl letters, and a chit chat die-cut was added to the center to finish it off.
Chunky twine was used to outline the face of the phone, on the handset/receiver, and also for the pull string.
Well, that's it from me. Thanks so much for joining me today and happy crafting!
