Victorian Effect Jewellery Box Inspiration by DT Megha

Hello everyone,
Hope you've kickstarted your Summer with some juicy mangoes and buttermilk to beat the heat!

Today I am here with my first DT Inspiration post for you through Rainbow Craftykari. I have also incorporated the 'Love' theme for April Challenge in my creation.

I have altered a jewellery box which makes a  great gift for near and loved ones. I personally have decided to gift this to my aunt who 'Loves" jewellery ;)!
To alter this, I decided to use techniques of mixed media. Here's a look at the altered project:


To make this begin by choosing any jewellery box, could be from your mother's or one of your own. Next, prime it and lay elements which you would like and take a picture, to refer later. Next, apply modelling paste through a stencil which will depict grandness. Pick your colours, I choose blues and yellows and covered the top and sides of the box. Next, I prepare the elements, here I gold embossed the chipboard frame (from Rainbow Craftykari), and the chipboard swirls with clear embossing powder. I used patina pastes and altered the metal butterfly. 



Keeping the Victorian lady as my focal point, I adhered all elements, along with a corrugated sheet to add texture, flowers, a vase, a skeleton leaf behind the frame to add detail and some art stones and glitter sprinkles. Lastly, I used waxes to bring out the details on the elements and added splatters with white paint.


Like you see, this is quick and easy to make so you can alter these and these would make perfect gifts for ladies.


Here are some more pictures:

Everyday Sentiment Cards by DT Ishani

Hello Dear crafters,

 

I love making cards and sending them to my dear ones. Am sure you love it too, especially to see or hear the joy when they receive it! Today, I am here to inspire you and encourage you with my cards.

 

Friendly Birds


My first card today is something I created primarily using dies and pretty patterned paper.

Materials: 

  • White cardstock

  • Pattern Paper

  • Birdhouse dies

  • Stitched circle

  • Watercolours

  • Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen

  • Corner Chomper

  • Die - cut sentiment

  • Sequins

  • Glue

I cut a circle on the front panel of the card base and just behind it, I did some watercoloring to create a scene of sky and grass. Then I cut a fence, birdhouses and birds out of dies and some patterned paper. I adhered behind the cut circle, the fence and one of the birdhouse so that they are on the upper panel. The other birdhouse was adhered inside the card, protruding till the cutout circle. Some glossy accents for the birds and spectrum noir for my background watercolour. I used a die cut sentiment, chomped off the upper corner and some added sequins to finish off my card.








 



Shaker card


Materials: 

  • White cardstock

  • Stamp

  • Embossing powder

  • Versamark ink

  • Heat Tool

  • Zig clean color brush pen

  • Pattern Paper

  • Scalloped square frame die

  • Acetate sheet

  • Foam tape

  • Double sided tape

  • Sequins  


For this, I stamped out a cake with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with a gold embossing powder. Then with zig clean colour brush pens, I coloured the cake and fussy cut it. 
For the shaker card I cut a frame from a Scalloped square die and similar to the dimensions of the frame, I cut an acetate sheet, a pattern paper with the birthday theme and the card stock.

On the base which is the card stock I stuck the pattern paper and glued the cake over it. I took the scalloped square die cut and adhered the acetate sheet with a strong tape. I treated the acetate sheet and the pattern paper with anti-static powder and then put foam tape at the edges of the card. Before placing the acetate sheet and sealing, I put some sequins on the card.








Hope you liked these cards and would try to make similar too! 


All above-mentioned products are available at the Rainbow Craftykari store or you can pre-order them by sending an e-mail to rainbowcraftykari@gmail.com.


Happy Crafting

Then I adhered some pearl string and rhinestone string on the top cover of the box. also some strings on the front opening of it. Then I adhered a beautiful leaf pattern lace on the top cover and attached a mandala die cut, some flowers, pearl stickers, twines and some more lace to decorate it.

Innovative Mailbox Tutorial By DT Anila Dikay

Hi Everyone!

Anila Here, I am back again, at the Rainbow Craftykari blog today with a tutorial and walk-through video. 

This is a mailbox shaped box for gifting.

Let's begin with a tutorial.
(This is a picture heavy post.... I wanted to include as many pictures as possible so when you try to recreate this you will have no problem at all)

Materials needed are:
Black CS
Pattern papers
Laces/ribbons
A Brad and a handle
Decorative material.

Method:
  • Take a CS measuring 12" x 7". Score the 12" side at 1/2" and 11 1/2". (Sheet 1)
  • Take a sheet of the same CS measuring 7" x 4". (Sheet 2) Stick the scored lines of sheet 1 to sheet 2 from the lower side. The box structure is ready.
     


  • Take a CS measuring 8" x 5" and score it at 1/2" from all the 4 sides. 



  • Trim the corners as shown and fold up the edges to form a tray.
     


  • Cut 2 pieces of the CS, little larger from all sides than the arch shape.



  • Make small cuts along the extra edge of the cutout and fold them inwards. Cover the folded edge with a strip of paper.



  • Take the other cutout, follow similar steps and stick it to the tray made.
     



  • Now cover the box with colourful patterned paper over the arch. 



  • Cover the side panel with colourful paper too (cutting the paper little larger and folding the sides inwards to cover the edges) Attach it to the box and stick it in place. This seals one end of the box completely. 



  • Similarly cover arched portion of the tray. Stick pattern paper from the inner side of the tray (as shown)



  • Adhere lace to the edge of the arch.



  • Cut a Flag shaped CS, cover it with pattern paper. Using a single hole punch make a hole. Attach this to the box using a brad. 



  • Attach a handle to the arch of the tray. Decorate the mailbox.


The Mailbox is now ready to hold any gifts inside.

Here are some final pictures with gifts inside.




That's all for today. Hope enjoyed making this mailbox with me. Would love to see if you create anything like this. Remember to tag us!

Here is the Walkthrough Video of Mailbox
