MDF Altered Box~

Hi Girls~

I have an MDF Altered Box to show you tonight.
I made this a few weeks ago. It was originally made for a Craft Sale, but my Sister fell in love with it, so today as a surprise, I gave it to her. She was delighted and said she wanted to put her jewelry in it.

I have showed a picture of the box before and after it was altered. It is just so plain before it's decorated. I just love it afterwards.
I used Gesso on the blank box and then painted over the top once dry with EcoGreen Acrylic Paint in the colour Sand.
I have used some of my new Heartfelt Creations Papers to cover the lid and sides. These are a new company to me, the papers are stunning and one 12x12 page has covered this box. The box measures 8x6 and was the middle size of these boxes. A perfect size for a dressing table.

The bodyform was cut from a leftover bit of a Scrapbook page, the Doily is a DoCrafts intricate die (mind you if you use the Reynolds Wax paper it's a doddle to get out the die). The flowers are my new favourites and are a die from Di-Namics. I have used some pearl string beads from my stash & card candy. The Sentiment is also from the Paper Pad, and this gorgeous corner die is also a new die, but I have lost the packaging and I cannot remember who it's made by.
