Karen here with my last project using the beautiful Rosabella collection. I have made a hexagonal exploding box and am thrilled with the results. Be warned this post is very photo heavy.
For this project I have used Coal cardstock (4 sheets), 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad, Collectables, Clear Stamps, Wooden Flourishes, Decorative Die – Rose and Leaves, Kaiserink Pad – Licorice and paper blooms in Black and Dusty Pink.
I cut my box from Coal cardstock on my Silhouette from a design I had made several years ago but there is a tutorial for making a similar box here. Once I had made my box I and lid I used papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to cover the top of the lid, base of the bottom and the pages.
I used the Clear Stamps and Kaiserink Pad – Licorice to stamp some butterflies and added them on strips of acetate to the bottom of my box and then decorated with Black and Dusty Pink paper blooms, I used the Decorative Die – Rose and Leaves to cut leaves from 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and tucked these around the flowers .
I loved making this and am going to add photos of my daughter as a Mother’s Day present for my mother-in-law.
See you again next month
