Tarot Pen-/Brush Holder by Majo

Hi all, it's Majo here with my first tutorial as a member of the Design Team.

The first creation I will share with you is a pen-/ or brush holder.

You can use it for many other items as well and it makes a great gift filled up with candy, tea bags, cosmetics etc. :)

 I used to cut and fold the chipboard myself, but since I can buy the plain holders at the “Swedish Store”, I use them instead. They’re very sturdy! 
  I started by spraying a piece of cardstock with Distress Spray Stain and cut it into pieces.

 I stamped the four Tarot cards and also some stars in the background, I added the word “mysterious”.

  I applied acrylic paint on the edges of the box. 

 After adhering the panels with strips of Miracle Tape to the box I used bleach to lighten up the images … and a little distress ink to soften them again. I added Washi Tape on the inside of the pen holder.

   The following pictures all sides of the pen-/brush holder ….

 .... and a little close up of the background:

 I used the following stamps:

Tarot La Forza  - Strength
Tarot XVIII - The Moon
Tarot XVII - The Star

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial, happy crafting
