ICC#27-Star Spangled Box

Iron Craft Challenge this week was to create something on the theme Stars and Stripes.  I chose stars and created a simple little box.


I created a cardboard stencil of a star that I then traced over the box.  I wood burned the outline of the stars and filled them in with various colors of acrylic paint.  I sealed the box with clear acrylic sealer and I was done!

  1. Fun project! Word burning is similar to what my laser engraver does. But I can't go around round surfaces (yet!). This turned out great!
