Altered Gift Box - DT Priyanka Thukral

Hello Everyone :)

I am over at Rainbow Craftykari Blog today to share my very first inspiration post as the DT member for Rainbow Craftykari. I am Elated..!! and I hope to stand up to the expectations laid down on me.

Today I have an Altered MDF wooden box to share as a part of my inspiration project.
Altered mdf projects have been my favourites since forever & no wonder I begin my term with one of these.

Here is the complete picture of my project.

For this project I picked up a hexagonal mdf box (another current favourite of mine.. :P ) I began with painting the base with gesso which works as a primer (tip: Gesso creates a coat on the base of the wooden material that  holds the paint otherwise the wood absorbs the colour).
Next I painted the box with blue acrylic colour. I chose coordinating patterened papers from eno greetings paper pack, cut them in the desired size & distressed them on the edges. For the cover I had cut the paper from one end till the center point & rolled the two sides on the opposite sides.
On the exposed part of the base I added glitter using stickles in the coordinating colour & a word tile over it.
on the other part I added a resin oval frame & sequince in the middle of it & adorned it with the resin flowers & bows.
On the sides I again used stickles in the same colour to give an embossed look (I love how they look like tiny droplets resting on the edge) & added rhinestones to lift up the whole look.

and tada..!! the box is done.. :)
The box is perfect to gift a watch to someone or keep it on your dresser as a jewellery box, can be used in multipurpose ways.
