Embossed Rollagraph Film Strip

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a floral photo reel that has me thinking Spring. I quickly rolled out a film strip with a Clearsnap Rollagraph and Film Strip Design Wheel to create a fun picture display. I embellished the top of this circular wood container with die-cut blooms that I created with the Stephanie Barnard Sizzix Triplets Flower #2 Die Set.

This project can be completed in a couple simple steps.

Crafter's Ink On Wood

Step One: Darken a natural wood container by applying a coat of Ann Butler Desert Sand Crafter’s Ink. Set the ink with a heat gun.

Film Strip Rollagraph

Step Two: Insert the Film Strip Design Wheel into a standard Rollagraph Handel, ink up with Dragonfly Black Pigment Ink, and roll the design onto a piece of vellum paper. Apply Black Embossing Powder over the pigment ink and heat to set.

Step Three: Cut the center of each film strip away to create space for photos. Glue photos to the back of the film strip.

Die-cut Flowers

Step Four: Cut pastel cardstock with the Stephanie Barnard Sizzix Triplets Flower #2 Die Set. Mix and match the die-cut flowers to create colorful layered blooms.

Stephanie Barnard Flower #2 Lid

Step Five: Add color to the petals of die-cut flowers, leaves and chipboard letters with Stephanie Barnard ColorBox Chocolate Dye Ink and embellish the lid of the container.

In Bloom Film Strip Reel

Step Six: Glue on end of the photo strip to the container and wrap around the center. Tie a colorful ribbon to the end of the photo strip.

This flowery container will double as a gift box for a packet of wildflower seeds.

How would you decorate this box?

About Dana Tatar

6Dana Tatar I am a stay-at-home mom currently living in Ohio with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 12 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything, including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home decor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I’m an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. When I’m not creating art, I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, listening to music, and spending time outdoors with my family and basset hound.
