Papirnati cuker. Cela zgodba

PAPER SUGAR. THE WHOLE STORY


Model je izbran, material in orodje pripravljena na akcijo.
The design has been selected, materials and tools ready to do some business.


Po prvem večeru - vsi sestavni deli narezani, prepognjeni, izštancani.
After the first evening - all components cut, folded, punched out.


Sestavljene osnove (če bi se dalo izbrati en korak, ki bi ga lahko preskočila ali prepustila komu drugemu, bi bil to verjetno ta).
Assembled blanks (if I could pick one step to leave out or have it done by someone else, this would probably be it).


Popikane.
Covered in dots.


Porožicane - na treh straneh.
Flowers added - on three sides.


Z dodanimi napisi (kot običajno sem vsebino napisov na fotografiji naknadno prekrila).
With tags (as usual, I erased the text on the photo).


Z okrašeno zgornjo stranjo - pripravljene na sladko vsebino.
Decorated top side - boxes ready for some sweet contents.


Sladka vsebina - s sladkorjem obliti mandlji. Spominjali so me na kamenčke. Tiste, ki smo jih nekoč nosili iz Baške.
Sweet contents - sugar coated almonds. They reminded me of pebbles. The ones that we used to bring home from Baška.


Končano.
Finished.


Projekt je bil eden tistih, ki jih človek naredi:
a) za svoje veselje
b) za sorodnike ali drage prijatelje
c) da vidi, če zna in zmore

It was one of those projects that you choose to do:
a) for your own personal enjoyment
b) for your relatives or dear friends
c) to see if you're up to it

Cuker. Papirnati cuker

SUGAR. PAPER SUGAR


"Rabimo nekaj za sladka darilca. Za dva vesela dogodka, za naši dve deklici."
"We need something for little sweet favours. For two joyful events, for our two girls."

V svojem papirčkastem spominu sem pobrskala po predalu z napisom Škatlice in pripravila nekaj vzorčkov. V beli in roza.
In my paper-crafting memory, I opened the drawer labelled Boxes and prepared a few samples. In white and pink.

Dve kockici - ena s pokrovčkom in ena klasična, geometrijska.
Two cubes - one with a lid and a classical, geometrical one.


Dve vrečki - ena na zapiranje z mini kljukico in ena na zavezovanje s trakcem.
Two bags - one to be closed with a mini peg and another one tied together with ribbon.


Ena trikotna škatlica, ena piramida.
One triangular box, one pyramid.


Ena košarica.
One basket.


Še enkrat vse skupaj.
All together, once again.



Zdaj bo pa treba samo še izbrati eno izmed njih (to bo mami) in potem narediti nekaj enakih za goste (to bom jaz).
And now it will be Mum's job to choose one of them and my job to make a bunch of them for the guests.

Porabljeni polžki - drugič, tretjič in še malo

Coils in use - No. 2, No. 3 and a little bit more

Na pladnju so ostali tisti bolj barviti. Brez prevelikega razmišljanja in kombiniranja sem jih sestavila v "oblaček".
I had quite a few colourful ones left. So without too much thinking and combining, I just went and made this "little cloud".


Nekaj hrapavih - preoblekica za pokrov sladkornice (premer 7,5 cm) in nekaj polizdelkov, ki sem jih kar spekla, da se mi slučajno na nepečenih ne bi nabiral prah.
A few coarse ones - I covered the lid of the sugar bowl (7.5 cm in diameter) and made some pieces to be used later. I decided to bake them right away, to prevent them from collecting dust.


Še zadnja iz te pisane runde - škatla od bonbonov, polžki tokrat s pikicami.
The last one from this batch - a candy box, coils with dots this time.


Ostanke sem prevaljala za nadaljnjo uporabo in že pospravila orodje, pa si je moja deklica zaželela, da ji nekaj naredim za rojstni dan ... z zelo eksplicitnimi navodili.
I rolled the scraps for further use and already put the tools away, when my little girl said she'd like me to make something for her birthday ... giving me pretty precise instructions.


- pastelni polžki, hrapava površina, trikotni koščki (ampak ne preveč podobni)
- pastel coils, coarse surface, triangular puzzle pices (but not too similar)
