h1is010b ~ Rooster Motif Kitchen
Shelf Wall Unit (This is the old style, the new style has a wood insert)

Required tools and supplies:

  • X-acto knife and fresh blade
  • Metal straight-edge ruler to use to press against and make perfect creases
  • Tweezers
  • Cutting mat
  • Detailing scissors
  • Fast-grab, quick-dry white craft glue that dries clear
  • Small piece of aluminum foil to use as a glue pot
  • Artist's paint brush to apply glue
1. Create a 3-d plank box for the shelf. Use a straight-edge ruler to make perfect creases. If you find you have too much difficulty with the thicker stiff paper piece, use the optional thinner paper piece.

If you are unsure of yourself and want a practice piece first, merely trace the shelf unit on plain paper before cutting pieces. Make a practice shelf unit with the plain trace.

2. Fold the back and side unit as shown in the photo.

3. This shows the folds again from another view.

4. Glue the folded portions in place. Then take the detailing scissors and cut around curved side pieces.

5.  Glue the little side tabs (4 in total) in place. Place glue on long tabs as shown  here.

6.  Carefully and slowly adhere and press in place the large panel onto the gluey tabs.

7.  Place glue along the three yellow edges of the shelf.

8. Line up the back of the shelf along the back of the case and press tight. Then press sides against shelf. Make sure the shelf is lined up and level within the case.
