Mandala Flower Gift Box
April 19, 2019
Hi everyone! I wanted to share a semi quick project with you all today! I have several of these kraft boxes laying around and I thought I would create a gift box for Mother’s Day.
I started by inking the Mandala Clover Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I inked and stamped four times total. I fussy cut each stamped image out and cut the “stem” off each stamped image.
I inked a glass tray with following inks: Cabernet, Mulberry and Aster Dyestress Blendable Inks and added water to each ink. I placed the four stamped images into the ink mixture and once each image was completely covered in ink I removed and let dry.
I inked the Leafy Border Jumbo Rollagraph (I couldn’t find the rollagragh but found the Leafy Border Mat which is the same thing but not the roller) with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and roll onto a piece of watercolor paper. I fussy cut two stamped leaves out. I inked a glass tray with the following inks: Inchworm and Moss Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. I added water to each ink and placed both stamped leaves into ink mixture and once each image is completely covered in ink remove. While the leaf images are still damp I shaped each leave.
I shaped each Mandala Clover “flower” image with a stylus and adhered each flower on top of each other and added a button and a gem to the center of flower. I adhered the leaves to the back of flower.
I adhered a paper doily to top/lid of box and added the flower with leaves on top of the doily.
I looped several loops of thread, added lace, a lace bow and glued underneath the flower.
I finished the box with pearl sprays and two pearl top pins. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge:
