MDF BOX now decorated.



I bought this MDF box a few weeks ago when I went to the Sincerely yours show at Biggin Hill. It was just a plain box. I bought the word "Home" at the same time. Very cheap the box and the word home only came to £10.50 and the box is 13.75 x 10.5 x 3.75 inches.  (Look at MDFMAN.CO.UK) I have decorated the box using the wallpaper that I have in my craft room. I bought the letters for Janice elsewhere and I have glittered these up using purple glitter. The word home I have used pinflair's " Buff-it fast drying glossy craft polish" in lavender. I then used a butterfly stencil over the word using the silver buff-it polish. I then used a black fine point pen to draw the outline of the butterflies a bit more so that the butterflies stood out more. A few pearls and some flowers to decorate the word. As you can see I have added loads of flowers in the top right hand corner of the box. A strip of ribbon and pearls on top of each side of the hinges. Then I added some silver charms all depicting the crafts that I love, ie, knitting, sewing and cutting out !!. I have still to decorate inside the box, but will do that later when I have decided what to store in the box. At the moment it is one large box, but I might divide into sections to store more things.


  1. This box is so pretty, well done. I bet you have a spot on your craft room wall all ready for it, as it is in your favourite colours.
    Well done

  4. This is lovely Janice, I think I am going to have to get some stuff from the MDF man. x

  5. A super project Janice. I bought hearts from the MDF man at a show at the end of last year and used them for a workshop for my ladies last month. I had shown them how to put the paper on and use the sander to remove the excess and gave them a few ideas but they really enjoyed the project and every single one was so different. I have some of the butterflies to do when I get the time. Best wishes Jackie
