Start by cutting a piece of card the same width of the hamper base but longer than the base of the box now this depends how long you want your veranda area on the front and back of the box. You will need to cut roughly 5/ 6 of these and stick them together to form a really hard base just like chipboard.
Now you need to die cut 16 flowers from the terrium box this is what was used for the wheels you need to stick all 4 on top of each other then adding a fifth with decorative paper to match your box so in total you need 20 wheels. Now place a mark on the edge of the wheel with a pencil each side so you know where your half way mark is as you don't want your wheels to be stuck to your caravan at different heights.
You need to make the Hamper box up as you would normally adding pretty decorative papers it opens just the way it was designed with the supports added in each end as I showed you on the mail box previously.
Once the the Hamper has been constructed glue your hamper box to the base you have created leaving enough space at the front for a little veranda and a big enough space at the back for your flower box.
Now make a little flower box big enough for the space you have made and this box had a little tissue paper added to the bottom of the box and then the flowers were made from the set and placed inside with hot glue then the box is glued to the back and base of your hamper box and base.
You can now add the little fence around the front of your veranda area this is die cut from the lace border die -Constance you need to cut this die out 4x times and you just rtim the very edge off with your scissors and glue 2x together to give it some strength stick one end to the caravan edge where you know you can cover it with a wheel then with a little hot glue or wet glue glue it to the edge of the base you will need to hold it and do it bit by bit until the glue has grabbed ,please be careful if using hot glue, then when you come to a corner just gently bend it and teasing it around and glue in place as before ,work out where you want your gap and trim off, do this on the other side then you can add your wheels which will be glued to the sides of you hamper and the side of the base you will need to hold these for a min until the glue has grabbed.by placing the halfway pencil marks on the wheels you have a good idea of getting your wheels all at the same height as you don't want it to rock.
Now you are ready to add a bit of decoration the 2x little windows are from the gingerbread house die set but if you don't have these you could place little circles or an oval shape with the bottom cut off.
Now to make the canopy you will need a piece of card the same length as the Hamper but the width just needs to over hang slightly so I would say as wide as your hamper box plus an extra 1" on each side then with a border die or punch as I used here you need to punch a pattern across the sides of this piece of card both sides then shape the roof with your hand or something round like a spray tin to shape the roof then this is added to the roof of the caravan on 3D foam pads as a canopy it only needs to over hang lightly on each side.
To finish you need to add a door to the front which is just an oval die cut with the bottom trimmed off put through a wood effect embossing folder and a small gold brad put through the card then glued flat to the caravan add nuvo drops to the wheels and awning and then add some pretty flowers to the veranda each side and a piece of card mountain & valley fold the width of your gap as a step and glue underneath.
You could always add a picket fence around the front if you have another picket fence die.
And there you have your caravan
