Instructions:

How to create a one of a kind Valentine

 

Step 1: Type out the words you would like to put on the box in the font of your choice. A Script font was used for this example. Print out your text and transfer it to the lid of the box using graphite paper. If the graphite transfer is a little dark, use a kneaded eraser to lift off some of the pencil lines and make it less visible though the marker ink.

 

Step 2: Use a pencil to draw a variety of large and small flowers all over your box to frame your text. Try not to make the lines too dark.

 

Step 3: Colour in your pencil drawings and trace your lettering using opaque Posca markers. For a more graphic look keep the colour palette simple (3-4 colours) and the lines bold. Try using a broader tip Posca marker to colour in larger areas and a fine point marker for smaller details and lines.

 

Step 4: In a well-ventilated area, lightly spray the outside of the box with a protective varnish to fix the ink into place. Now your box is ready to be filled with precious memories!

You will need:

  • Fine point Posca markers (0.7 mm)
  • Medium point Posca markers (1.5 mm)
  • DeSerres metal box
  • Krylon spray varnish (matt or glossy)
  • Graphite paper

  • Eraser
