Hello… hello! I’m feeling good day and It’s been a while since the last time I wrote something for my blog. However, as always, when I’m absent there will be something that I’m doing. and this time I did something great and a big move for me. It took me some time to get everything smoothly moved, but I’m so glad right now because everything is working great so far.
If you are an old reader, you will know that I’ve been blogging on the “Blogger” platform for a long time. And it was ok, but I always wanted to get back to WordPress. It’s where I started at the beginning. Also, it has a lot of advanced features that the blogger didn’t have.
I just moved to WordPress and I’m planning to spend the rest of my journey here. I hope that I get to meet new bloggers here and awesome content. Which, I will start doing it, reading and commenting on posts as well since I’m going to be here.
Anyways, enough talking about it and let’s get the post started. If you follow me on my social media, I tweeted about a new idea which we just lifted the curtains of it. I’m saying this because it’s a big one and I hope you enjoy your time reading this post. Grab your favorite drink and have fun.
I call this the 3D billboard gift for bloggers and YouTubers. But it works for any company or organization that has a name and social media. If you have someone work in any of the options mentioned, you can definitely gift him or her this. Because it will be a great desk decoration on holiday or working days for them.
About this idea
this gift idea was only for bloggers who review products or do similar things. I thought it would be a nice thing in the background when taking photos. which will be another way to promote your blog or Youtube channel.
However, It turns out to be bigger than I expected and it deserves to be a desk decoration. I’m sure everyone has a big desk because in case you have other things. It will be a bit difficult to add more stuff on small desks, you know.
I wanted to do it for my blog, but I thought to take it as a collaborating opportunity. That’s why I included Lisa’s notebook blog. She is an amazing blogger who blogs about a variety of lifestyle stuff. You should go check her awesome work.
I wanted to make everything 3D and for that, I used a long and big base. As shown in the picture above, but it wasn’t long enough which was something I didn’t pay attention to. I thought of using it because the letters were small and I had to make them a little larger.
Everything worked well after doing little changes as you will see later in the post. Also, there were a couple of things I planned before starting on this idea, but I didn’t add them as well for some reasons.
Parts of the 3D billboard gift:
Letters wouldn’t stay still standing for a long time without a stand for them. That’s why I got two pieces as shown in the picture above. However, I used more than two, but I didn’t take pictures of them because it was a sudden change and forgot to do so for some steps.
I just realized that I didn’t take pictures until it was too late haha, and got everything together already. You might see what happened, but most successful people don’t show how they did it or the time frame of the process. So, this took me more than you expect just to mention that.
The next part would be the star which represents that Miss Lisa being a star in the universe. Also, an amazing blogger who works hard to achieve goals and dreams.
I made two copies of the star to make it 3D-looking and it worked nicely, but not as perfect as I wanted. For some reason, I kinda struggle to get a perfect star even though it’s easy to make lol. I keep messing it up until I get a good one.
Let me present to you an item of the project which is a complete 3D star as you can see in the picture above. I could take a picture of the opposite side, but it would be the same, you know haha.
Something like big 3D letters wouldn’t be easy to hold them up, but with my idea. Everything is looking great with my construction which the idea I came up with. I needed to build big tall columns to hold it. However, in the picture above, everything still under construction.
The constructions took some time to finish and it wasn’t as expected as you can see the top was messed up a little with the right one in the picture above. But everything worked well in the end.
Main parts of the 3D billboard gift:
An important step is making the logo of the blog or Youtube channel or whatever the project is for. This will illustrate to others more about the billboard and what’s about.
Imagine people walk up to your desk and see the logo and know how to find your blog or Youtube channel, even the company logo. They will be like “Oh, that looks dope logo”. Which, adds a nice touch to it.
Here comes the last and most difficult step for the project. Getting the 3D letters took so much time to get them all done. Not to mention, I did this process twice because the first time they were too small to work on. You might start with the easy ones and finish with a hard one or do the opposite, but it’s optional. I picked the first one to present the post for you.
My plan on making the letters 3D looking was the same as the L letter(which glowing the enter thing together) as showing in the picture above. But my cousin thought it would be better and faster glowing only some parts which we ended up doing it. Because he helped me with some of the letters, they were a lot, you know.
Alright, it’s time to get things together and make the rest of the parts. This is might be the longest project so far for me and I can’t show and talk about all the steps, so I will speed up the process. I will just show the pictures with captions, and I’m going to see you in a minute, enjoy!

Details about this step
Sorry to interrupt the cut scene, haha, but I forgot to take pictures of this step, the social media icons. This could be in every billboard in the street which everyone would see. And should be in this as well because why not.
I think nowadays social media is the main marketing for business owners and every blogger on this earth. My plan was to add the username with social icons, but it was a little hard to make it fit. However, That would be an upgrade next time I do something like this.
Alright, let’s get back to the scene where everything starts to get together. I hope you enjoy.
Alrighty, it was really fun doing this project and I’m going to show the full finished version of this billboard gift idea because it will take so much time looking through the entire process.
I shall present to you the final look of the 3D billboard gift… drums!
Here we go, the 3D billboard gift idea for Christmas which I haven’t mentioned earlier in this post, but it meant for gifting on this holiday season aka Christmas. Also, the good thing about this is could be for any season or occasion as well.
