It's a Windmill
Here is my entry for the SVGCuts Spring Challenge, it's made using the egg from the Popular Street Tulips kit. The roof is from the top of the egg and the body is from the bottom of the egg. I only used the first two layers of the bottom of the egg and cut the rest off in Make the Cut. I then created 4 sections one bigger then the next to form the windmill. The blade is made using the fence from Chamomile Friendship Cards. For the windows I used the door from Playful Parlour's birdcage and the tulips are from the new collection April Avenue, I welded them to a strip and scored it so they would stand. The railing I made in MTC from an Octagon and I welded rectangles for posts around and glued another strip to form the top railing. the windmill is about 9" tall and the base is about 6 3/4". It opens in two sections so I can put the tea lights in the base and the middle sections. I really enjoyed designing and making this project, oh and the wood paper is from Echo Parks This & That Charming digital pack, the roof paper I had from somewhere. I'm trying to get a good outside picture before I submit it. I picked up a motor, I want to see if I can get the blades moving, hopefully it works!!
