Decorated Box


Last weekend I went to a workshop taught by Annette Lee. Annette had brought some lovely MDF boxes for us to decorate, my box is roughly 6x6.

Here is my finished box:

I used Paperartsy Fresco paints Dolly Mix and Dusty Teal from one of the JOFY limited edition sets to paint my box. I then used some papers from Craftwork cards on the sides, lid and on the underside of the kid too. I distressed the papers with some of the Teal paint and a baby wipe.

The sides looked a bit bare so I added some stamped flowers ( I think they are heartfelt creations) and some metal corners. On the lid I used a die cut and a stamp both belonging to Annette so I have no idea which brand they are.

Once I was home I added white fire treasure gold to the corners and the die cut on the lid. I also added it around all the edges and along the lid edges too.

To the flower centres I added some gems which I had coloured also using the white fire treasure gold.

It was a lovely day and I really liked my box.

I have given it to my sister as a house warming pressie :-)

Thanks for stopping by,
