And Minister for Foreign Affairs, George Yeo received a hand-crafted gift from me:





And here's a really simple tutorial on how to make your own Do-It-Yourself Robot Mobile Phone Holder : )

For the Robot we will be needing:

1. Cardboard (thick)
2. Corrugated Cardboard
3. Acrylic paint
4. Plastic tube (optional)
5. Acrylic varnish (optional)
6. Penknife
7. Strong glue



For the gift box / packaging:

1. Cardboard (thick)
2. Carpet grass
3. Acrylic paint
4. Acrylic varnish (optional)
5. Nice ribbon
6. Penknife
7. Strong glue

Here is the digital mock up of the Robot which I did before making it. Let's do OMY Robot 01 : )



Starting with the Robot head, measure and cut out rectangular pieces from the thick cardboard. Glue them together but leave the top of the head uncovered. This is the part where we have to create a slot for the mobile phone. For the slot, cut out more cardboard and glue them together so that they look like a holder.



Follow the same cut and glue method for the body, but leave some allowance for the tank wheels later on. Glue the head and body together.

For the tank wheels, cut out round edged rectangles (2 for each tank wheel), then close up with the corrugated cardboard. Repeat for the other tank wheel.



Glue the Robot parts together and start painting over with acrylic paint. In this case I only painted the head, and the body. Then, glue on the eyes and mouth. These can be any sort of material. I used felt wool squares for the eyes and cardboard with red paint for the mouth.



Add a plstic tube to its head when all the paint is dry (optional). There you have it, your very own Robot Mobile Phone Holder : )



If this is a gift for someone, you could also make an outstanding gift box by using simple materials and easy steps. Here's how:

Cut out the cardboard in the shape of a box but leave one side open so that the receiver can take out your gift easily. You can glue the sides of the cardboard with carpet grass (optional), and then glue the cardboard together. Paint the outsides of the box with acrylic paint and then varnish (optional).



And there you go, a very sweet and simple gift box : ) I've added a triangular cardboard for the OMY logo in this case. You could on your own, add nice stickers or words. Then finish up with a lovely ribbon.



Hope you've enjoyed this tutorial : )

Toodles!

Special thanks to Pearly, Catherine, Andy and Flora : )
