Bethany Box

I like to make things for my family at Christmas time and this was something I made for my daughter last year.  I have one which I have also started for my son so hopefully he'll get that one this year for his birthday.  I bought the boxes from The MDF Man at the Hobby Crafts Show last year and always planned on making them for my children. Also at the show I found a lovely stall that sold wooden buttons where I bought ones to spell out Bethany's name.

I painted the box using some Dulux sample pots and then used ink pads to decorate the initial buttons and the butterfly.  I then stuck them down and coated the whole thing in clear Mod Podge to finish.  Bethany loves it so that's the main thing!
