My first decorated MDF Box

I bought 2 MDF boxes at the NEC show from the MDF Man and now I wish I had bought more as I loved decorating them and they look so pretty. This is the first one I am sharing with you today and it will be on my stall at the hospital shop. Hubby undercoated it in white and then sprayed a mottled pattern in purple on top. I attached guipure lace and pearl trim from The Ribbon Girl around the sides.

The top and inside of the lid were covered with paper and I then added pearl sprays and flowers. The middles have been Stickled (is that a word?)

Papertake Soooo girlie 
Bizzy Becs Anything goes
Scribble and Scrap Anything goes 
That Craft Place Anything goes

Early start today as we have to be at the hospital around 7.30 and won't be home until about 5 so I will link up and bloghop this evening. Enjoy your day x
