We will use SHAPES to create a callagraph plate!
Here's what you need:
Cut your box completely open on the seams. You will have the front, back, sides, top and bottom pieces all separated!
One side of my cereal box will be the background, and I will glue all of my callograph cut out pieces onto this!
Begin by planning out your design. Cut out the basic shapes for your design but don't glue them right away. Play around with them until are happy with your design, then glue the pieces in place.
Glue your pieces to the background!
Once the big shapes are glued down, you can add layers of detail. This part is important because it will make your final design POP!!!! For my houses, I added stripes on the roof, widows, doors - have fun and get creative with your ideas!
I added some details to the background - I added a moon and some stars (using a hole punch).
Whoops! Do you see how I accidentally glued the front of the box facing up with one of my shapes? That's OK because we will be COVERING this all up later this week!
Scroll down for a few more plate ideas!
You can create whatever theme you want!
Here is my one house design!
I used half of a box for this callograph plate.
Here is my ROBOT - just like Mrs. Stephen's lesson video HERE!
And this is my LINE design here! The dots are paper hole punch holes! I am actually super excited about this design!
TOMORROW - I will be showing you how to use these callagraph plates to make RUBBINGS and on WEDNESDAY I will show you how to wrap these plates in FOIL and color with markers to make them super shiny and FUN!

Have fun creating!
