Birthday Explosion Box

May 6, 2016 No Comments

We had a birthday in the house this week!  But, I had to hold off on posting this because she hadn’t had enough time to sit down and open cards.  Since she follows what I post, she would have seen her card online before enjoying it in person.  We couldn’t have that!  Life is so busy that we’re putting off “celebrating” until the weekend.  Eighteen years has flown by!  I’ll miss her come Fall.  But, let’s move on to what I made for her birthday before I get all sappy.

I’ve been hoarding the Shine On Specialty designer paper.

Do you do that with designer paper that you especially like?

I’m trying to break that habit and actually use it.  That way I can buy more and enjoy using it again!

Anyway, this paper was perrr-fecttt! for making an explosion box card.

The Shine On designer paper has a lot of body so that even after scoring and folding, this box is very sturdy.

The lid was made from a piece of Cucumber Crush cardstock which matches the polka dots on the designer paper.

The top of the box was decorated with a double Cucumber Crush bow cut with the Gift Bow Bigz Die (retiring).

Tip: take your bone folder and run it along the length of the cut strips to slightly soften the cardstock fibers.  This way the pieces will bend without creasing.

I accented the bow and the box top with strips of Silver Sequin Trim.  A girl needs a little glitz!

The card opens up to share a standing message and four pockets.

One of the pockets held a message from me.

And, she can put mementos from her birthday in the other pockets.

The “18” was cut with the Large Number framelits.  Just a dab of hot glue was added at the base of the numbers so that they would stand.

The “th” was cut with a die from the Little Numbers Thinlits.  It was then adhered to a piece of Window Sheet which in turn was adhered to the “8”.

“Happy” was cut from Silver Glimmer Paper using one of the Hello You thinlits.  It was adhered to a piece of window sheet taller than the “18” so that you can see both “happy” and “18th” when the box falls open.

I’ll try to get back with a video this afternoon if lighting cooperates.  You’re going to love how easy it easy to create the Explosion Box.

Thanks for stopping by.
