Hope you are all well and are not having to paddle anywhere. Some of the roads locally to me are flooded, but fingers crossed at the moment we are untouched.
I have a little Mdf box to show you today.
I have just had a trip away with Angie, to see Rob the Mdf Man and have re-stocked on his fabulous products. These little boxes are just so sweet and measure about 6x5,
I have used some Prima "Sunny Days" 6x6 papers to cover the lid and sides. Any papers are good for this, but if you are using 6x6 you will need a pad that has three sheets the same as it takes about 2 and a half sheets to complete.
I have gesso'd the boxes first (no need to sand them as Rob's mdf is superb quality), then I have painted it with Acrylic paints (Eco paint in sage). I inked the edges of the papers with Distress Ink in Walnut, and glued into place. The hardest part of this is cutting around the papers for the lid shape, but I draw round it, then cut inside the drawn edge, then just keep shaving bits off as I fit it and look at how it is, it's very forgiving if it's cut a bit short and the inked edges helps alot.
The best bit comes next....the Embellishments, you can use whatever you want on the top, a theme if it's going to be a sewing kit or beads if it's going to be a jewellery box. I usually keep mine flowery, with a lovely sentiment.
The doily is a Memory Box die, the flowers are from my stash and the Sentiment was free in my latest Scrapbook Magazine. The last thing I have added are some Hobby House pearls in Aqua Green.
