Make Scene Boxes for a Moving Theatre


This is a fun and easy tutorial that goes along with our rolling paper theatre of whimsy. These tatebanko's can be added to scenes in your theatre. In this tutorial we show how to make a tatebanko that's a little different from previous ones we've had. These boxes can really bring some life to your theater and the epic tales being told.

And I have lots more paper diorama projects right here including Lord of the Rings, Halloween and well . . more!

These paper scene boxes that we make are part of our Theatre of Whimsy project

Walls of scene boxFirst, measure out your theatre and figure out how big your boxes should be. They have to be small enough to fit but large enough to be seen.






Scene box after being folded and glued togetherNow, make yourself a little paper box from card stock with two sides open. You want the top to be open to let in light and the front so that you can see the tatebanko.






Next, color in your scene and all the individual pieces you will be using such as characters, objects, etc. There are no limits to your imagination!










Cutting out cave rocksCut them out and glue them to your box. Remember to leave a little extra paper at the bottom of each object so that you can fold it back and glue them to the box upright. Below are two tatebanko's that we did, one depicting a dragon and the other a princess.
