*We received craft supplies from Craft Merrily and Bostik products to create this craft. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.

 

I am beyond excited about this month’s #BostikBlogger craft in association with Bostik, Craft Merrily and Tots100. This month’s theme is robots and we decided to do create something for those with a sweet tooth, a Sweetie Robot!

Who doesn’t love a good craft involving sweeties?! Read on to find out how you can create a gobbling sweetie robot in 7 easy steps…

You will need:

  • An old cardboard box (one that opens and closes with a flap is ideal)
  • Silver Paper (or paint if you prefer)
  • Foam sheets in different colours
  • Scissors
  • Bostik Blu Glu
  • Bostik White Glu
  • Bostik Glu Dots/Bostik Microdots
  • A paint brush
  • A pipe cleaner
  • A fuzzy pompom
  • A sharp scalpel or similar for difficult areas

 

Robot Craft what you need: scissors, pipe cleaner, silver paper etc.

 

Step 1 Choose your box and plan the mouth

Choose your perfect box. It can be any size (as long as you can fit sweeties into it!), but this style of box is great because it means you can load sweeties easily into the back ready to be taken out of the robot’s mouth. Plan out your robot’s mouth on the box (you can go free-hand or measure it out, either is fine!) and cut it out.

Step 2 Cover the box

We used shiny metallic paper and Bostik White Glu, but you could paint it or decorate your box anyhow you like! We only did the front at this stage, no idea why, but there you go!

Don’t forget to cut out the mouth if you cover it with paper…

Step 3 Make eyes and a nose

George and Molly used foam to create effective eyes and a nose for our robot. Attach them using Bostik Glu Dots.

Step 4 Make the teeth!

This step is quite fiddly, because it totally depends on the dimensions of your box. I made sure the card was a fair bit wider than the box and then I used the cut out mouth piece of card from the robot box to figure out how big (wide) I’d need the centre part to be. I then stuck white paper to the card and drew around the mouth piece and filled in the teeth.

Then it was time to test them out! I sliced into the box with a scalpel and created a slot from the bottom of the mouth to about half an inch above the mouth. Try not to go below the mouth otherwise the teeth won’t sit in the right place.

Step 5 Make bolts/sliders

I quickly sketched an idea onto the paper and then transferred the design to a piece of green sparkly foam. Simply cut two of these out and attach them to the paper/card with Bostik Blu Stick and cut around them…

Step 6 Finish off the decoration with an antenna

After you’ve added the rest of the paper/paint to the back of the box, create an antenna with a pipe cleaner and a sparkly pom pom. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the pom pom and make a small hole in the top of the box. Pop the pipe cleaner in and seal with tape.
