An exploding box...

Hiya!

Warning - taken millions of piccies of this one so I'll try to keep my words brief!

My step-sister asked me to make an exploding box for her to give to some friends on their wedding day. You can just see one of my handmade scrunchy flowers on the side....


The sentiment on the lid is one of my faves from Sentiments 4 You:


The second box inside.... The butterfly is an xcut punch, the Mr & Mrs stamp is from papermania...


The image is from Pollycraft coloured with promarkers and glitter glue. I won the die cut heart and wedding outfit in candy wins and the glittered vellum in the background is from the Tatty Teddy range...


Another sentiment from Sentiments 4 You, more use of nesties and some beautiful rings from a candy win....


My first go at making a paper wedding cake! Flowers from papermania, ribbon from stash...


Another die cut heart from a candy win.... You can see the faux stitching on the cake from this angle...


Computer generated sentiments and lots of glitter glue!




Phew! That was a long post! Thankyou for sticking it out till the end :-)

Hi Mel, amazing! I know how much work there is in designing an exploding box 'cos I've done a couple myself. The wedding cake is beautiful & all the rest, well what can I say? They will love it! I'm not surprised you took so many pics as there's so much to see, you should feel proud.

Hi there, I just wanted to pop by and tell you about the Wild Rose Studio blog hop, you could win 7 of their stamps and three paper pads, all you have to do is make a christmas themed card, and you dont have to use a Wild Rose studio stamp or product. (Although we would love it if you did)And then comment, on all of the DT blogs. Come and join in the fun. Would love to see you there (http://blog.wildrosestudio.co.uk/)
