I made several chunky pages for a Mandala chunky page swap at ATCsForAll.com (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.
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.
