Watering Can Measurements

Hi Everyone

Well I have been asked to share the watering can tutorial with you.  I have put the measurements below hope they are ok for you all

Start with a piece of card stock that measures 8 3/4 x 8"

On the 8 3/4 side score at 2 7/8 and 5 7/8
on the 8" side score at 2 7/8 and 5 1/8"

Turn back to the 8 3/4 " side and from the first score line make a notch of 3/8" after the line at the top and bottom and the turn 180 degrees and do the same on the other side, draw a pencil line from the notch to the middle these become your cutting lines.  I just cut the corners off leaving a half inch for the side tabs and took a slight notch out of them.

For the Handles I used two oval dies and then scored and cut as per below.  Cut two of these glue together and open up the score lines to glue to the box.

For the spout I used a piece of card that measured 1 1/4 x 2 1/2
I notched first at 1/4 Then at 1 1`/4 on the 2 1/2 inch side just so I could get where the spout started to shape then I cut and shaped the rest. remember to cut 2 of these as well to glue together then open the score lines to glue to the box.

I hope this helps in some way

Have fun thanks for looking
