Sushi Tutorial, part 3


Cut two pieces of cardboard that are 2" long, and two that are 1¾" long. They all should be ½" wide. 
Glue the two shorter pieces to the longer pieces ends and wait for them to dry. 
Once fairly dry, place on a piece of cardboard and trace around it. 
Cut out the rectangle, and glue it to the bottom of the already glued pieces. 
To make it look like wood, you can either draw or print paper with a wood grain design on it. 
Personally, I had my mother draw paper for me. 
Either way works just about as well, although printing may be slightly quicker. 
Here are two suitable pictures you could print. 
You may have to adjust the size. (Neither picture belongs to me) Darker wood Lighter wood
Cut strips of paper the same size as the sides, top, and inside of the box. 
Squeeze a small amount of glue onto the area you want to cover, and rub it around evenly with your finger, and apply the paper. 
Cover all of the visible cardboard, if possible.


The chopsticks are admittedly rather underwhelming. 
For mine, I used two toothpicks (I recommend the flat variety.) and colored them with a permanent marker. Wait before they dry to touch your doll, or the sushi!!!! 

I hope you have enjoyed the sushi tutorials! If you make some, comment and tell me!!

This is great, Mimi. I love vegetarian sushi and have a friend in Milwaukee who makes it from scratch just yummy. Your A.G. sushi looks very real, and I'm sure the girls will enjoy the exotic touch to their menu. xxoo
