This month for Letraset I have made a sweet gift box, perfect for the end of summer term gifts, why don't you make some of these for your children's teachers.
I started by scribbling with Aquamarkers onto a non porous surface and spritzing this with water.
I then used a brayer to pick up the ink and transfer it to a sheet of card.
Next I scribbled with contrasting colours, this time I used the ink to coat text stamps.. ELB05 and ELB06
I stamped all over the previously coloured sheets.
Once dry, I die cut these sheets to make some flowers,leaves and birds.
I layered up the flower shapes, and curled back the petals.
As I had cut the leaves and birds both ways, I was able to glue them back to back, making the colour on both sides.
I then made a small box using more card that had been coloured in the same way as step 1.
I tied up the box with a scrap of lace, and used more of the lace (trapped between the 2 layers of the bird) to attach the bird so that it dangles free.
Finally I glued on the leaves and one of the layered flowers.
This box measures 7cm x7cm x4cm, (made using the WRMK envelope board) perfect for a small treat.
After looking at it for a while, I decided it looked a little flat, so I added just a touch of metallic glaze around the leaves and on the edges of the petals.
I have a pack of summery Aquamarkers to giveaway.
