Butterfly Circle MDF box for the Hochanda TV. Show.

Good evening everyone,

Hope you managed to watch Imagination Crafts on Hochanda TV tonight.    Four great demonstrations by Sue and Lisa.   Tonight I have another MDF Box to share with you, which I made for the TV shows tonight and tomorrow.   I have used the beautiful new rice paper and Starlight paints, along with some Art Cutz designs.

                                                           Below is the top of the box


Paint the inside and outside of the MDF box with 'peanut' MDF paint.   Cover the top of the box with PVA glue and lay the rice paper on top and smooth out, making sure there are no creases.   This rice paper is really quite strong and very easy to use.

Paint more PVA  glue over the top of the rice paper,   and around the edges of the lid and bend the rice paper onto the sides of the lid.   (Don't worry as this glue dries clear and leaves a protective surface.)

Cut 4 pieces of the 'chicken wire' Art Cutz to fit the sides of the box.   Paint each one with the 'Turquoise'  Starlight Paint and glue these to the sides of the box, using Magi-bond glue.

Paint 4 Art Cutz flourishes with the 'Turquoise' Starlight paint, adding a subtle touch of the Inca Gold paint , then glue one in each corner.   Glue 4 holographic, square gems, spread evenly, between the flourishes.

Die-cut 5 butterflies using the Spellbinder's die and paint them with the Inca Gold, Dried Rose and the Turquoise Starlight Paints.

Glue the butterflies in a circle in the centre of the box lid.   Add some silicone glue to hold the wings in place.     Water down some of the Inca Gold Starlight Paint and dab around the outer edges of the lid, using a piece of cut n ' dry foam.   This gives a very subtle sparkly effect to the surface.

Well that's it for tonight folks, I must add this to my Pinterest page, so I'll be back soon, hope you will too.   Many thanks for visiting my blog, hope you may have found some inspiration for your creations.   Please don't forget Sue will be on Hochanda TV. tomorrow (Friday) at 9am.  12pm.  4pm. and 7pm, so set your recorder to record  if you  are unable to tune in.   Bye for now.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                    Hugs   Jennifer xx.
