These boxes aren't the usual store-bought match boxes, so I'm excited to share with you Part 1 of Matchbox Amulets.
In this part you print out a template, then cut, paint, fold and glue together your own fitted box for a base of the amulet. Then as an intro, embellish the top and bottom rim or edges, as well as lid and bottom of box with textured polymer clay. These boxes can be made larger, smaller, taller, and wider, by changing the template. You can enlarge or shrink the template before printing it out. The box can be painted to compliment the color or whatever embellishment you want to give them, be it for and with polymer clay, beads, or paper arts.
The paper you use should be thick card stock, brochure type or other art paper. I have prefab box kits available in my shops.
Part 2 "Inner Sanctum Amulets" will go more in depth in finishing and personalizing these boxes, covering with polymer clay, antiquing, various of stringing and beading options, decorative elements for the top and bottom, as well as the inner part of the box.
This detailed Part 1 consists of 15 pages, 41 steps and 44 photographs.
The PDF file will be emailed to you shortly after purchase and within 24 hours (usually much sooner).
Please respect copyright of Artist and do not share, copy or lend the tutorial.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm away until Aug 18th...
