Graphic 45 
A Proper Gentleman
Classic Model Truck 
with ATC Book Box
'Debonair Smashing Gentleman'

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a 3D paper Classic Model 
Truck with ATC Book Box featuring
 the FABULOUS A Proper Gentleman
Deluxe Collector's Edition.

I love this collection! A perfect line for
 all those masculine projects. I created 
this super awesome Truck with my
 Silhouette, one of the lovely Graphic 45 
boxes and of course their AMAZING 
metal embellishments. 

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies:
Silhouette Cut File:
Truck 3D Classic Model by Snapdragon Snippets Design ID 280897
 and assembly instructions here.

Various Dies
Metal Embellishments 
Metal Chain and Ball Chain
Mini Paperclips
Art Pebbles
Plastic Car Wheels 
Black Cardstock 
Adhesive Foam Squares
Red Double Sided Tape
Black Gesso
Metallique Waxes
Rust Pastes
Glossy Accents
Soft Gloss Gel
Tim Holtz Grunge Paper

Mat the ATC box box both the outside 
and inside  with the pattern sheets. 
You can use your own discretion when 
measuring I normally leave a small 
border so that I can still see a bit of the box. 

Identify and cut the Truck shapes shown 
in the assembly above using the pattern 
sheets from the DCE collection.
Engine Hull Section
Cab Section
Truck Bed Section and
Chassis Section
Tip: I always use the red double sided 
tape for all my off the page projects.
 It makes assembly easier and will 
also prevent the project from falling apart.

Cut 2 long strips of grunge paper measuring 
30 cm x 1.5 cm and 2 small strips measuring 
10 cm x 1.5 cm. Originally I wanted the 
straps to go around the ATC box and 
then just slip them off when opening it 
but then I decide to cut the pieces off 
where the lid of the box
opens up instead.

Cut 3 tags to mat the black tags
 (from the book box) using the G45
 tag die. Add a mixed media textured die 
to the tags and cut.
Tip: Use masking tape to keep the 
die in place,thus making sure it 
stays in the position you want it.

Ink the edges of the little stickers 
from the collection and mat onto 
cardstock. I used the the Graphic 45 
signature series lights pack. LOVE 
these signature series packs
they coordinate well with the 
G45 collections. 

Cut 3 apothecary bottles from 
chipboard using the Tim Holtz 
apothecary bottles bigz die. Colour 
these with some rust pastes. 

You will notice that I used these 
cute plastic car wheels for my truck
instead of the ones from the cut file. 
Paint the 'rim' of the wheel
 with black gesso and colour with 
some metallique waxes.
 Tip: I wanted the wheels to match 
the colours of my truck plus all
 the embellishments are the 
same colour too.

Add some washi tape to the roof
 of the truck. Add a chipboard
 embellishment on top adhere 
with foam squares.
Tip: Adhering these pieces with
 foam squares will give it a little dimension.

Add some metal chain on
 the sides of the truck.

Add the metal handles and G45 
door knobs to the 'doors' of the truck. 
Tip : Adhere the metal pieces with soft
 gloss gel or glossy accents ensuring
they will not fall off. 

Add the chipboard clocks to the 
'lights' of the truck. Add an art pebble 
to each adhere with glossy accents.

Add the metal embellishments to
the book box as seen in picture.
Adhere all of these with a soft gloss
 gel. Add the matte pearl gems on top 
of the box in the centre.

Add some embellishments and 
chipboard on the side of the box let 
them hang from metal and ball chains.

Tear some pieces of cloth randomly
 and add to the inside of the box.
