In this detailed and multi technique lesson you will learn to make a box by using a cookie cutter that will act as a mold or form. The finished box resembles old leather with metal appliqué. The turquoise crackle lid and stamped embellishments add to the overall aesthetics and richness of the vessel. Don't like to sand? No problem, as this project is not recommended for the sanding enthusiast! I'll show you tricks to avoid this chore and how to accomplish invisible seams.
Don't let the look of the box intimidate you, it can be altered to a simpler version by
leaving out some of the steps. If you don't have Celtic knot-work stamps, use Asian, Floral or other stamps,however, I've include an On-line Supplier list of both Canadian and US Retailers/wholesalers that ship worldwide, including where to purchase Celtic rubber stamps, Cookie cutters, Paint, Texture plates etc
Also included is a printable cutting guide.
This detailed 78 step lesson has 80 clear photographs and 29 pages to guide you through 7 parts:
Cookie Cutter box form
Stamping, Texturing and Embellishment
Molded Lid and Handle
With the crackle technique alone you'll be inspired to make beads and pendants :) if not more boxes!
(The finished Box that I made for this tutorial is for available for sale, please inquire)
