Our latest club project involves using a box file to create a scene. Hence the question.... what can you do with a box file?
Everyone was given a box like e one above. After much deliberating I decided to make a shabby chic scene inside mine. I chose some suitable wallpaper and stuck that on. I used lollipop sticks to make a shabby tongue and groove along the bottom with some wooden trim as a small ledge.
All of the wood has been painted and then sanded back to give it the shabby appearance.
I tiled the base and intended to continue tiling the rest but came across a problem in terms of opening and closing the box so I used a piece of white felt to represent carpet to cover the remainder. This way I can close the box for storage.
It also struck me that this would be a good way to make scenes for photographing minis for sale. You can fold away the box file and store it easily, plus the scene will not get damaged.
I need to make some more bits and pieces for the scene so will let you know how it comes along.
