New Project: Rico's Time Machine Done!

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to share a new project that I have just completed.  I call it... Rico's Time Machine...

This is a great project for 2016 as you are passing from one year to the next.  Rico's Time Machine can mark the new year for all new and unexplored journeys to come.  A cool Steampunk project as well...

Rico's Time Machine was inspired by the 1960's movie, The Time Machine starring Rod Taylor from the H.G. Wells Novel.  I made this project for an amazing friend's child..the reason... I was always so fascinated with all things that flew in the air and I hoped he would too.  You can choose to adhere the Time Machine to the base or leave it separated for flights through the decades.

There is a separated drawer in the base that can be opened at either side to place memorabilia or possibly two small mini books covering 2015 and 2016.  You decide...

Here's a look at Rico's Time Machine using Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante Paper Collection....

If you are interested, I've made up a limited quantity of kits that are now available in my shop.  This is a kit only project and the tutorial will not be sold separately.

The Kit Includes:
All chipboard pieces pre-cut and ready to assemble
(4) Idea-ology Knobs
(8) Idea-ology Hitch Fasteners
(1) Bamboo Skewer
(1) Instant Download Tutorial with Tons of pictures to help you along your building journey

Just add your own paper, paint and glue...(Glossy Accents or similar recommended.) to finish this project.

  3. Hi Jim!

    Look forward to getting my kit. Almost done with the Oddities Box and half way on the Dickens Townhouse. Will send pictures when done. For me I enjoy doing those kits and having it all already cut out but still my job to put it all together and add finishing touches. So relaxing, too. :)

    1. Oh Nova! I so appreciate you! Your talent always amazes me in class. You Rock!

      Hugs to ya!


  4. You are amazing! I'd give anything for a tutorial on a project you did that I saw on your old had some things on the top that ran on 2 wires or strings strung between 2 posts, I believe. Very steampunk and VERY cool!! If you DO decide to do a tutorial, I will buy it immediately! TY!

  5. Wow Jim this is awesome!! Love the details you did.
    Hugs Nettie

  6. Wow, my son would have gone bonkers over this as a little kid, what a clever idea, I seriously thought it was an antique toy at first, just amazing!

  7. Very nice post. Glad to find your blog. Keep sharing.
