The November class at Icarus Creative Arts had seven of us creating Zendala Mini Boxes with a holiday theme. This project can be found on YouTube, featuring Dorian Eng as the instructor. New patterns introduced with holiday-like characteristics were Stella, Verdigogh, Ahh and Crystal. We finished off the boxes with Sakura Stardust Gel pens and little red ties. This size box would fit something very small, like a party favor, candy, folded money.
I shared with the class a larger box that I made using an 8″ template cut from Stratford toned blue mixed media paper. This size is perfect for a bigger surprise inside! This just shows you can vary the size of your templates and get all sorts of different size boxes that you can personalize and share with friends and family. OR … you can string a ribbon or string through one of the corners and you’ve got some personalized ornaments to decorate the tree or your home! Very fun project.
There won’t be any classes during the month of December, but I’ll see you back at Icarus on January 6th with an “Intro Class” for those wanting to start a Zentangle Journey, and then January 20th when we’ll “switch” between black and white pens and create a “sea turtle” for something different!
Happy Holidays everyone!
