Description :
We often run short of storage spaces especially on our dressing table or our table that has odds and ends but are important all the same. This box is the perfect DIY craft solution to put in your little bits of things that otherwise would be strewn around. A lovely handmade box would such as this would surely look attractive and is of utility at the same time.

STEP 1 : How to prepare the box
Take a wooden MDF box that has a lid. Begin by painting the box with Acrylic Colour – White 27; this will be the base coat before the desired colour is painted. Putting a base coat is important as the colour looks rich and dense once completed. After the white base coat has dried completely, paint with Greenery – 67 evenly all over the wooden box and leave it to dry well.
STEP 2 : Tracing the pattern on the painted box
We have chosen leaves in a random form to be drawn on the box and lid in a candid and natural manner. As you can see in the image we have drawn the leaves that merge well with the lid and box.
STEP 3 : Outlining the design
To accentuate the leaves, outline each of the leaves with veins with 3D Cone Outliner – Black 708 and let it dry well.
STEP 4 : Painting the leaves
Now is the time to paint the inside of the leaves with a light shade of green mixed with a bit of Chrome Yellow 03 and White 27, to get a natural look of foliage / leaves. Your box is ready to be used once it has dried completely. Use it to store your small pieces of trinkets, or odd and ends.
