MDF Decorated Tissue Box

Hi Folks
Not long now till the big day.  Just a few last minute bits of food to get on Wednesday and I am all done.  Feeling quite organised for a change lol. I am looking forward to a few days off work and spending quality time with my family.  Might even be able to sneak in a bit of crafty time too.

Today I thought I would share a project I have recently completed for my newly decorated lounge.  I bought an MDF tissue box a few months ago and finally got around to decorating it.

I started by painting the edges of the tissue box with black MDF paint.  I then used papers from Papermania to decorate the sides and the top.  Around the aperture at the top I added a pearl string that was in my stash.  I added some thin black lace around the sides of the box and finished off with some flowers and metal corners.  

Here is another view.

I am really pleased with the way this turned out and really enjoyed doing it.  Will certainly be looking to try more things like this in the future.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
