Fall 3-D Wheelbarrow

Today is another Craft Junkie Too Design Team day. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love being on Tracy's Design Team!! Her awesome assignments are just a small part of it.  The challenge for this week is:

Autumn, Fall or Halloween - Not a Card


I love this cute little wheelbarrow!! It measures a WHOPPING 11 3/4"! I inked the edges of the handles, the wheel and the wheelbarrow body too.

I also made a trio of 3-D pumpkins to add. :) The little leaves on the pumpkins are from A Child's Year - cut at 1 1/2" and inked with green and orange ink.

I don't have directions for it, but this is the body of the wheelbarrow.  This is not a 3-D project in the Walk in My Garden Cricut Cart... but I just HAD to make it into this cute 3-D display.

I grabbed this adorable leafy mini garland at Craft Warehouse... so cute! :)

I cut the wheel out of a dark gray color and inked the edges black for depth.  Each side of the wheelbarrow is a total of three thicknesses of cardstock, I also added strength to the front wheel by adding this strip of cardstock.

I also used Popsicle sticks to add strength to the structure. I really wanted this little wheelbarrow to be able to hold quite a lot of weight... I knew what my kids would want to display inside.

Here is a look at the empty wheelbarrow.

And of it loaded down after a trip to the mini pumpkin farm! :)

And this is what my kiddos loaded into the mini wheelbarrow... I just knew it would pay to reinforce it! :)

That's it, please head over to Tracy's blog and see what

Wow, that is so cool! I love the leaves on the outside of the wheelbarrow. That little details just adds so much more to the look of the wheelbarrow.

The best part about this is you don't need those 3D glasses to view it.
