Ranger Ink 'Frayed Burlap'
MDF Box




Assembly

This will take a lot of measuring and patience but once the pieces are cut the project will come together quite quickly.  Place the cut pieces through the Xyron Creative Station.


On the exposed edges I darkened them with ink and then I covered the inside first, starting with the base and then the sides.  Once I covered the inside I decided it was best to grab the screwdriver and remove the lid and all the hardwear to make life easier !


Next I measured and cut the outside pieces and again I used the Xyron Creative Station to stick them to the MDF.  Next I repeated the process to cover the lid.


Once the box was covered I inked around the edges and reattached the lid and hardwear.  To decorate the top I took sentiments from the pad and made up the Florartistry Fabulous Folding Flowers and Foliage to decorate.  The flowers are cut from foam !!!.  This will make them longer lasting and fade resistant.
