Flower Mandala – Coloring with Paper

I was going to post this Flower Mandala last week as part of Flower Week, but I was so excited by the other flowers I forgot I had it.  So I will post it this week.

Once you are sure you understand the basics, download the Flower Mandala  SVG File.  The instruction sheet in the download file explains how to upload it to Design Space.

 
 

You will need:

 
 

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 flower Mandala a good size for cards and scrapbook pages.

Stick the outline to the contact paper and re-cover it with the protective backing paper.

Cut out the flower in whatever colors you want.  You should stick to the same color family but you can use vellum, patterned paper or glitter paper with your solid colors.  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 flower mandala with the tweezers. 

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 plan to make it the centerpiece of a future scrapbook page.
