Decorative Box

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a wonderful day yesterday with Kath, we both did different projects, one of which I am showing you today. I decorated a box for all my tags that I have received in swaps as well as a door hanger.

I have used another of Julie Nutting's Prima Dolls, sorry but I just love them.


The box is from the MDF man, when I visit shows I always treat myself to a couple of his fabulous pieces. 
I first painted the whole of the box with cream MDF paint from Imagination Crafts.
Once this was dried I used Graphic 45 Botanical Tea papers and covered the lid of the box, insides and around the outside. I then distressed the edges with Inca Gold.
I stamped the image onto Supersmooth coloured hair and skin with Spectrum Noirs then paper pieces her dress using card from my stash and added pearl flowers to her dress.
I then added lavender doilies and an antique spray of flowers from Ooh-la-la Vintage Treasures.
On two of the corners I added pearl flower gems.


This is a view of the inside of the box.


Around the lip of the base I added pearl trim and distressed lilac flowers with Vintage Photo


Many thanks for stopping by Today
