Altered MDF Box by DT Priyanka Thukral

Hello Everyone, :)


I am 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 favorites 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 patterned papers from Eno Greetings paper pack, cut them to the desired size & distressed them on the edges. For the cover, I cut the paper from one end to the centre 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 & sequins 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.

How to make a 2 layers Explosion Box

This is a tutorial which shows how to make a 2 layer explosion box. Explosion box can be custom made to suit different occasions.


Glimpse of the Explosion box:


Since Friendship day is around the corner, I made this Explosion box for the same occasion.

Steps to make  a 2 layers Explosion Box ;

Step 1
Start with a square sheet of cardstock of any desire color which measures 12 by 12 inch. I close black because it makes any color look bright onto it.


Step 2
Score 4 inches and 8 inches horizontally and vertically.



Step 3
Cut out the squares at corners as shown.



This is how it  looks like.

Step 4
Repeat Steps 1, 2 & 3 and make one more such piece for the second layer with 11.5 inches square cardstock. The layers can be of same size as well but I want it to be a little smaller than the first layer.


Step 5
Apply adhesive (I have used fevicol, you can use any adhesive you have) on the center square of the first layer and glue it to the next piece on top.


The base is ready.

Step 6
To make the lid take a black cardstock of 6 1/4 by 6 1/4 inches size, score 1 inch from all the edges and crease them.


Step 7
Make cuts along the creases on all the 4 edges of 1 inch.

Step 8
Apply adhesive on the flap and fold inwards.


Repeat same for all the four corners to complete the lid.

Step 9
Choose pattern papers and stick them. You can choose any pattern papers you like. I'm choosing 3 different floral pattern papers from Paper designer paper pack which goes along with the occasion.


This is how it looks like once we stick these papers to the base.

Step 10
Embellishments to be added.


1 - I chose Teddy bear die cuts from a pattern paper set I brought from a local store and wrote friendship message on them using a marker.
Stamped few sentiments to make more embellishments. (Clear stamp from Heidi swap).

2 - Quote die cut are from collection of die cuts brought from a local store again, a heart pearl, ribbon, a button, 3 pink mulberry flowers, bling to decorate the lid.

3 - For center of the card:
I stamped a sentiment "love our friendship" on pattern die cut for center of the card, added a ribbon to the tag and a little butterfly which goes along with the pattern paper and few pearls brought from local store.
I added few bling and distressed the corner of all the embellishments with Ranger's Mowed Lawn acid free distress ink pad using blending tool. 
I used double sided tape to all the embellishments to give a 3D look.

The complete Explosion Box








This is my take on 2 layers Explosion Box for Friendship Day
