I love doing a mandala in Coloring With Paper! The color variety has no limits.
Once you are sure you understand the basics, download the Mandala 2 SVG File. The instruction sheet in the download file explains how to upload it to Design Space. This project needs to be put together differently so read all the directions before you start.
Cut the outline from black cardstock. Do not make the file any smaller than 5 inches tall or the black lines get too thin. This makes the Mandala a good size for cards and scrapbook pages.
Cut out the various pieces from paper scraps in your scrap bin. The great part about Mandalas is that there is no limit to the color choices you have. Use patterned paper or not. Just fill them in however you want.
Watch my video on cutting different colors on the same mat.
Start placing the various pieces on the mandala with the tweezers. With this project it is best to start on the inner most part and build outward. All the outline pieces are not connected to each other so to get the circles placed correctly, you need to build it differently.
DO NOT TOUCH THE STICKY SHEET WITH YOUR FINGERS
When all the open spaces are filled, check to make sure all the paper is secure. Press the protective sheet over everything and press sorta hard. Anything that seems loose, glue down with the liquid glue and let dry for at least 30 minutes.
Finally, with scissors cut around the outside leaving as much of the outside black line as you can.
Use the mandala as you like. I can’t wait to use this on a scrapbook page.
