Santa's Workshop Series: Toy Shelf

This tutorial is part of my Santa's Workshop series. You'll find all of the tutorials in this series here.

You'll complete all of the items that go into the workshop and then will put all the items together.

This tutorial is for the toy shelf, and it's a pretty quick and easy one. You'll just make a variation on the bathroom cabinet in my dollhouse series .

For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro.This tutorial was written in version X, but if you're using earlier versions of PSP, you should still be able to complete the tut without problems. You may download the latest PSP version demo here.

Step 1. Open up a new image 500 x 200, white background.

Step 2. Go to the dollhouse bathroom towel cabinet tutorial here. Follow instructions #2-4, with the following changes:

  • Use color #808080
  • Make your shelf approximately 150 x 75.

  • Make 3 shelves instead of 4

When done, you should have something similar to this.

Step 3. Apply an inner bevel (effects>3d effects>inner bevel), using settings in the screenshot.


Step 4. Copy this layer and paste as a new layer twice (edit>copy. edit>paste as new layer). Line up your shelves so they're all even.

Step 5. Delete the background layer and merge visible layers (layers>merge visible). Save as a PSP file.

What to do next: Return to the Santa's Workshop Series tutorials. Work your way through them, and when finished go to the Assembly tutorial.

Enjoy the tuts!
