Don't let the look of the box intimidate you, it is simpler than it looks.
If you don't have Celtic knot-work stamps, use Asian, Floral or other stamps, however, I've included 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
In this detailed and multiple 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 applique. 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.
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:
