I'd like to share a box tutorial that I did last year for the STAMPlorations blog.
I decided to make something autumnal.
This is a little gift box which is cut with the Silhouette Cameo out of
kraft cardstock and decorated with some Sizzix Flowers.
I started by putting some Gel Medium through stencils on top of the gift box. I used the "Leaf Prints" and "Botanical Lush" stencils. The Gel Medium must be dry before we go on to the next step.
it was time to add some color. I used the Gelatos (Grape, Tangerine,
Buttercreme, Cinnamon and Green Tea). I applied the colors on top of the
textured paper and blended it with my fingers. I use a baby wipe to get
my fingers a little bit wet.
it dry, that does not take much time, before you put the box together.
If you want to protect the colors you can use a fixative of course. By
the way. My black working surface is a duration baking mat. It's a cheap
version of the original craft mat and perfect to work on with glue,
colors or the heat tool.
embellish the box I used different die cuts (all dies are from Sizzix)
which were cut out of a creme white cardstock. I colored them with
Distress Inks and the Ink Blending Tool.
The lable on the front of the box is also a Sizzix die with embossing folder. I stamped a sentiment from the STAMPlorations "Fond Expressions 2" onto it.
think this is a very easy project. You can do this technique with every
gift box or on a card. It's simple and it looks so beautiful.
I hope you liked this tutorial. Happy crafting, Susanne.
