Project Robotz: The Final Battle

The time was upon us. We had built our robot army and were ready to bring vengeance down upon the Shrieking Harpies. We had finished construction on the massive robot general that would lead the robot minions on the battlefield. His magnetic core would keep him in constant contact with the rest of the robots, allowing him to know exactly what each of them were doing. We installed a satellite on his antenna to boost his communication signal, ensuring none of the robots would miss any of his commands.

I made this robot box to house the set of five robot themed cards I made which you can see here, here, here, here and here. I cut the robot, gears and letters out using the Robotz cartridge. I embossed the letters with my handy dandy Swiss Dots folder before gluing them together. 
 The background I embossed with the coordinating Robotz Cuttlebug folder. I added that same gear paper around the edges of the box and in the middle to tie it together with the cards that also use that same paper. Lastly, I glued some key rings onto the box for a little metal, giving it a more robot-y feel.


The robot dude comes off! I glued a magnet on his back (underneath the shadow layer so you can’t see it) and one in between the layers of gear paper and its border so he will “stick” to the card. This earned me +492 concealment exp points. 
There he is hanging out on the side of my fridge, being all magnetic-y and stuff.

Here is the box partially open showing the set of robot cards inside.

The complete robot set!


This robot box will whirl on into the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #57 (used #8: Emboss It, #9: Dies & Punches & #10: Metal Embellishment)

We loaded the robots one at a time into the massive transportation device. The metal creaked and groaned as the cogs whirled and steam spewed from the pipes. We were ready. The final battle was upon us. Wish us luck.
