Decoupage on MDF Box with Easel Card Tutorial by DT Nikkita Sethi

Hello Crafters,

Nikkita here again on India's Best Papercrafting Blog that's Rainbow Craftykari Blog. Hope you all are doing great. Often you want to decoupage the MDF Box with pattern papers but many doubts arises, Today in our Teaching and Learning program, I'm going to share step by step tutorial Decoupage on MDF Box using Pattern Papers. Also I'm going to share one more tutorial on how to prepare an Easel card, which is going to be inside in it and it will become an Wonderful gift to present to your loved ones. It's going to be lengthy post, so sit back and grab your favorite summer drink.

Decoupage Box with Pattern Paper:

Step 1
Take MDF box of 6"x6" size. I have bought mine from Rainbow Craftykari Store. It has good finishing and of highest quality. Clean it completely using fine sand paper. Shake off the dust thoroughly.


Step 2
Apply Light Coat of Gesso to all over the box, Coat only once. Let it dry completely or Heat Dry it using heat tool.


I'm using Prima Rossibelle Pattern paper, so i have picked the color from it, then apply DecoArt Reminisce chalkboard paint using sponge or brush, chalkboard paints give a smooth and neat finish and dries quickly.


Step 3
For 6by6 inches box, have cut the pattern papers into 5.75inches leaves a 0.25 inch gap which shows the background color of the box and distressed the pattern papers with Black soot distress ink or any other ink to give a finished look.

I used mod podge to stick the papers it's a fabulous product for decoupage. Apply Mod Podge in Horizontal and Vertical way so that it get apply evenly on on base and it won't form any bubbles.

Tip: When you'll adhere the pattern paper, before give a one good coat of Mod Podge glue which is sufficient. Than take any clean rough cloth, fold into small rectangle shape and by keeping good pressure of your hand move that cloth piece on to the pattern paper, it will set  your pattern paper.
Stenciled using grey chalkboard paint and if you don't have grey use black and white acrylic paint. I have stenciled inside and outside before and after adhering the pattern papers. Heat Dry it.


For Inside have cut the pattern papers approx 7mm from all four sides. Adhere it using same technique. 


Step 4
Coming to decoration, I have colored the Simple Lattice Chippie from Papericious and other chipboard elements with DecoArt Reminisce ChalkBoard Paint using Sponge brush. To give a brushed look i have Distress them using Black Soot Distress ink. I have even use left over chippies from Simple Lattice to give a unique look. Have adhered them inside and top of the box using glossy accents.


On the top of the cover, I've placed chippies, flowers, Metal Embellishments and die-cuts from the Prima Rossibelle Collection to give symmetrical composition. After that i have adhered them with glossy accents and tacky tape.

Tip: You can take photographs of you composition, It'll help you to make the placements of your decorative products to check the correct composition, Once you're satisfy, adhere them.


Our Decoupage Box is Complete, Keep it aside. Let's move to Card now.


Easel Card Tutorial:

Step 1
Take black cardstock of around 250-300 gsm measuring 5*11inches and score on long side at 2.75" and 5.5".
Pre-fold all score lines.


Step 2
Take another piece of cardstock measuring 5x5.5" and adhere to 2.75" x 5.5" section  as shown using tacky tape,
Remove the Tape liner and adhere the 5x5.5" cardstock piece. Now the card base is ready.

Step 3
For embellishing the card I have used scraps from the collection left while making the box and have cut strips of 0.75" x 5.5" and now stick them randomly using tacky tape , now you can add a die cut and embellish it with the tags from the collection. I have added foam tape at the back to give 3D look. Take a strip of 1.75 *5 inches and add to the inside flap to make a stopper for the card to stand.


Step 4
I have added satin handmade flowers and embellished with diecut leaves using glue gun and glossy accents and added a sentiment in the inside flap to complete the card.


And now the easel card matching the mdf box is ready.

Altered Embroidery Hoop Tutorial by GDT Rashmi Tater

Hello Dear crafters,

 

This is Rashmi Today. Wishing u a very bright morning!

 

I say so because I got a real a real bright project to share with u guys! THANKS TO THE TEAM RCS and Maninder for the opportunity. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this super hardworking team! Kudos to all of you for your efforts!

 

For long, Altered Embroidery hoop was in my to do list so I combined an old handkerchief and the hoop  into a totally bright thanking goodie (trust me no one will ever find out what it was before!)

 

So let’s begin, grab your supplies and let your imaginations fly!

 


Firstly fit the handkerchief in the hoop and secure with backing ring, trim of the excess from behind. (Please Note: You can take any size of Embroidery hoop)

 


Coat the entire with prima heavy gesso from the Mixmedia essentials kit (front and back) and allow drying. Until then grab your supplies.


 

I used some broken clay embellishments I made using prima mould. (Supplies pic attached)

  

 

 

Then stencil the hoop using Prima modeling paste from the Prima MixMedia essentials kit and cover the heart with gesso and metal beads.

Tip : You can use a mix of talcum powder to your gesso to create a quick texture paste.

 


Now it’s time to make a layout use multi medium gel from cinnabar projects. It perfectly sticks; glue gun can be used for the thermacol heart
Tip: You can use fabric glue for the adherence,if you are running out of Multi Medium Gel.

 

 

I used a thank u tag too (as this is a gift for a dear friend) and I also have added a fussy cut butterfly. (I love it all white too: P)


 

Then spray with the colors of your choice loads of options are available in the store. Remove the excess color by wet wipes. 

 



 

Glorious butterfly. U can highlight with shimmer and glossy accents.

 

 

Finally the Full Reveal.

 


Mix media is all about playing around. Let your heart lead you to creating something new each time. You will start with scrap and end up with beauty in your hand. 

 

Get inspired with things around you and try to make your own version of mixmedia artwork (difficult to get same set of supplies anyways ) but I surely know we crafters are big time hoarders and will definitely have loads of things we are saving for a future project just use a few each time from your treasure be it broken pendants to old keys . Just mix and match, play around and you’ll see just like me you will fall in love with Mix media.

Prima Mixmedia essentials kit

Prima stencil 

Prima Iod mould to make emblishments

Embroidery Hoop

Mulberry flowers 

Pollens 

Paper flowers

Paper clay 

Hoop

Starburst Card Tutorial by GDT Neha Lunia

Bonjour Crafters,

Hope you all are doing good. It's an April month and Summers are approaching, So don't let the summers take away your MOJO. We have a way to bring out your mojo back.
Today, Our GDT Neha Lunia, in our Teaching and Learning Program, will be going to teach an detailed card to gift to your loved ones. Let's get started!!

Hi Crafty Folks,


This is Neha here with my first GDT post. I would like to thank Rainbow Craftykari Team and Maninder Kaur for giving this awesome opportunity to work with them. We all do have lots of pattern papers which are half used. So, this card is perfect to use them up. Today, I have tutorial post for creating this addictive and super easy “Starburst Card” with very few basic materials.

 

1. Let’s get started by cutting the pieces required for the card.

   1 piece of 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock

   1 piece of 3 7/8 *5 ¾ “cardstock

   4 pieces of 4*1 ½ “Pattern Paper (of your choice)

   1 piece of 2*3 ¾ “Pattern Paper




2. Cut each of 4*1 ½ “of your pattern paper diagonally by lining the edges up on your paper trimmer.



3. Place 3 ¾ * 3 ¼ “cardstock on your scoreboard along the long side. Mark on centre at 1 7/8” with the help of pen/pencil. Rotate 180 degree and repeat the same.



4. Apply glue all over on your 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock.

 


5. Line the pointed tip at the bottom and top of marked centre points. Once you have first piece in place then you can start adding other strips. Keep going and play around the combination.



6. Trim off the excess edges and you have your starburst ready.



7. Mount your starburst onto the 3 7/8 * 5 ¾ “cardstock. Line up your 2* 3 ¾ “of Pattern Paper below the starburst with help of any adhesive of your choice.



8. Place 8 ¼ *6” cardstock on your scoreboard with the long side on top and score at 4 1/8” and fold along the scored line.



9. Mount your starburst onto the folded card with help of adhesive. Decorate the card with die cuts, laces, trims, flowers or sentiments as you prefer. Here, I have used my designer scissor and strips of plain cardstock to make the trim. I have punched few small 5 petal flowers and leaves. Have shaped up the flowers using embossing tool (you can also use rounded back of your ball pen). Lastly, have completed the card with cutting off sentiment from the same paper pack.

 




Hope this tutorial has inspired you to use some of your scraps of card and paper. Do share your creations with us at our FB Page

Plain Cardstock

Pattern Paper (Eno Greetings)
