Bedtime Story Diorama Tutorial

Hello, G45ers!

Pull out those fussy cutting scissors and let’s create a diorama!  Today on the Graphic 45 blog, Sabaa Hassan shares a fabulous Bedtime Story Diorama, complete with a video tutorial, and a hot air balloon template.  Sabaa selected our Mother Goose – Deluxe Collector’s Edition for this home decor piece, but how cute would this be with our Cottage Life collection?  You could even go for dark and moody with our Steampunk Spells papers.  What direction will you go?


Bedtime Story Diorama Tutorial

By Sabaa Hassan


“Childhood is the one story that stands by itself in every soul.”

And this is what my today’s project is.

I am super delighted to write the blog for G45 Brand and presenting “Bedtime Story Diorama” with Mother Goose – Deluxe Collector’s Edition.

I have spent my childhood with tons of stories and imaginations. And the time I hold the beautiful Mother Goose Paper pack in my hand, it took me back to my childhood. A 3D set up was always in my heart to create and this line allowed me to play with my imagination and creativity. Through this project, I have brought different childhood stories in one platform.



To start the process, I have used Mother Goose Deluxe Collector’s Edition and followed the below template.

I have cut 20 pieces of the template and stitched it from all around. Then folded each piece lengthwise from center and pasted is together. (Please refer the YouTube Video for step-by-step process video)

Template for Hot Air Balloon


For making the base of hot air balloon I have used small disposable cup and covered it with rope. I have also covered 4 chip sticks to fix the Hot Air Balloon with the base. Then I have used mixed media gel on the edges of the basket and added the fussy cut out.



To make the base I have cut the circle of 7.5 inches of diameter and cover it with pattern paper.



For making the Humpy Dumpty Wall I have used chipboard cutouts as mentioned below

8 cm * 5.5 cm – 2pcs

1.25 cm * 5.5 cm – 2 pcs

Now stick all the pieces (shown in video) and I have used brick stencil

to give it a wall look. I have also added dry moss to wall. Fixed the wall to the base and hide all the corner n edges with dry moss. At the I have added the fussy cut out of Humpy Dumpty in little slating way.



Also, I have added sleeping boy at the back side of wall and a little girl cut out in front of Humpy Dumpty, who is looking at him.



I have covered the surrounding area with dry moss and decorated this grass with fussy cut tiny flowers.

At last, I have used glitter, sequins and mixed media stone (mini) to finished my project.
