Anything 3D challenge

Tiki Bar
 I thing I got my zing back. Thanks to Jessica at:  
She visited my blog and invited me play along with this challenge. I used her files from: 
the Just Beachy and Luau collections. There are so many fun elements to choose from I had to stop myself from getting carried away.

 I started by cutting 2 tiki bars at 8" height. I created the depth by cutting a  1 1/2 " strip then scoring them at 1/2" and 1". I folded the score lines and glued them to the front and back bar. I made a floor to support the bar by cutting a  5 1/2" square. I scored that at 2"-2 1/2"-3"-3 1/2" then folded it and inserted into the bottom of the bar. I found some yellow straw-like ribbon in my stash so I glued that to the top and front of the bar. I used distressed brown ink to mute the yellow. I cut the palm tree at 8" the surf boards at 5" and the lanterns at 1 1/2". I put flip flops a star fish and some sand on the floor. Enough about the details if you're interested leave a comment and email then I'll send that information.
