Mandala Chunky Pages with String Art

Doodled Mandala with String Art.

I made several chunky pages for a Mandala chunky page swap at (swap open until March 23rd).

I started with re-purposed cardboard from cereal boxes, which I cut to 4″ x 4′. I lightly sanded the printed side to help the glue adhere better. I then glued printed scrapbook papers over the cardboard.
Doodled Mandala with a touch of string art.I doodled the Mandalas with a Sharpie marker and an Indian ink pen.  I added a little bit of sparkle with a Gelly Roll pen and some glitter glue.

I added the string art by punching holes with an awl along the border, and then stitching craft thread through the holes.

For the finished pages I added small Mandala charms.  I made them with 1″ circles punched from cardboard covered with printed scrapbook papers and doodled with mini Mandalas.  I sandwiched satin ribbon between the layers and looped it through punched holes in the page.
