Start by downloading the folding template and cut it out around the outer contours. Now place the template on the coloured paper and go over the outlines in pencil. In our example, we used the edding gloss paint marker in pastel rose (colour code 138).
Fold the template to form a vase. Give it the required shape by folding the paper along the appropriate lines with the aid of the bone folder. Stick the sides together and attach the base piece securely with the sticky tape.
Before using a gloss paint marker, you need to activate it: Shake the marker vigorously with the cap still on, then remove the cap, place the nib on absorbent paper and pump it up and down a few times until ink appears in the nib. (And don’t forget to always store the marker horizontally after use.) Now you’re ready to get started.
Using the gloss paint marker, embellish your paper vase as desired with stars, graphic patterns, and so on. If the ink runs dry, pump the nib gently as described above until the ink flows again.
