First time getting myself busy with a Cyclone Magnum from Gokey. Let’s see what’s in place for me and how it turns out.
If you frequently fix models or have the interest to do it, I think investing in a cutter similar to this would be nice to have giving a nice clean cut of the pieces from the attachment. However, you will also need to becareful as it’s very sharp and may accidentally cut too much of the actual piece that you want.
I was too excited to start immediately without taking a photo of the items that comes in the box. Most of the things you need, should be inside to enable me to get me this far to have a car base with tires.
There is instructions on the inner side of the box cover. You will also need small philip screwdriver and 2 AA batteries.
I found that there are some things in the instruction that are not in the box such as the attachment to the back of the car base (instruction 7); and O-ring with small wheel (instruction 8).
What is left from the box which I’m not sure where to fix it are 2 round pieces and a small steel bar.
One thing that had scratching my head is this piece. It’s a metal pieces to connect with the batteries. The instruction does not guide how it should be fixed. So if anyone have any idea. Please let me know. Thank you. Anyway, it’s a nice display, though. ^^
I had some felts kept aside for a very long time and I thought to do something with it. While Christmas is coming, let’s do some cookie jar decoration as gifts! You can either buy some cookies or bake them yourself. As for the jar, you can use any type of jar. I bought mine from Ikea.
Here are some of the colours that I have. The few Christmas colours to have are green, red, white, and orange.
You can use any kind of thread depending on how thick you want the outline to be. I choose the normal threads because I prefer to have thinner outlines. If you are not sure what colours to get, you can buy the sewing box which gives you a mixture of colours to use.
Before starting on what deco to do, you can first measure and cut out a round-shape cloth as the top cover of the cookie jar. The size of the circle would depend on how much you want the cloth to cover the jar and where to tie the ribbon. If still unsure, cut a bigger round and snip it smaller when you tie it on the jar.
I got my inspiration randomly from Google and came out with these for my 3 cookie jars. You can see that I did not sew all the borders of the mini cloth to the main cloth and use the threads as part of the decoration like the yellow lines on the Christmas tree. I think it is ok to do that if it is not for heavy usage. Otherwise, the sides will be folded or curve up after a few use.
This is how it looks on the cookie jar. You can buy any patterned ribbon to tie it on.
