Wedding Explosion Box

I have been asked for a tutorial for this project so here it is.

INSTRUCTIONS
TO MAKE AN EXPLOSION BOX
1)    Using a 12’ x 12’ sheet of white Bazzill , score and fold 4” in from each end.
2)    Using the fold lines as guides, cut the squares from the corners on 3 sides only.
3)    On the last side, draw a pencil line 1/2 “in, cut this line to the corresponding fold line.
4)    To decorate the outside of the box and using the eCraft and the Jen Allyson Designs Image card, Category 2, Frames, cut 4 x 4” Image 9 Frame 3 from black Bazzill.
5)     Using the same design card and image, cut 4 X 3 ½”frames from white Bazzill.
6)    From the same design card cut 4 x 3” frames from black glitter paper.
7)    Using Jen Allyson Celebrates image card, Category 2, Weddings, cut 4 x 2 ½”  red Bazzill and 4 x 2 ½” white Bazzill Scalloped Edge Heart Cut Outs.
8)    Using the photo as a guide and using either glue or double sided tape, join 1 x 4”, 1 x 3 ½”, 1 x 3” together and then add the centre from the white heart and the scalloped edge from the red heart to the centre of the panel. Retain the red heart centres for the inside of the box
9)    Attach to the outside panel of the box. Repeat with the other 3 panels.
10)  Fold over the ½” strip and glue it to inside of the neighbouring side.
11) To make the lid cut a piece of white Bazzill 6” x 6”. Score ½” in from each side .snip corners and secure with glue. Using the eCraft cut a 4” glitter paper Image 9 Frame 3 as before and attach to the lid of the box. Decorate with hearts or flowers of your choice.  I have used flowers cut from Fundamntals1 Image Card, Category 3, Flowers.
                    Your box is now complete.
To decorate the inside of the box
1)    Using the eCraft and the Jen Allyson Designs image card and the same frame image as before cut 1 x 4” frame from Black glitter paper, 2 x 3 ½” frames from black Bazzill and 2 x 3” from white Bazzill.
2)    Glue the 4” glitter paper frame to the centre square.
3)    Join the black and white Bazzill frames together and the glue them to the two front inside panels.
4)    Again using the eCraft and the Jen Allyson Celebrates Image card and the scalloped heart used previously, cut 2 x 1” red and 2 x 2 ½ “ black Scalloped Edge Hearts.
5)    Separate the hearts from the scalloped edges and glue the 1” red hearts on to the front inside panels then glue one red heart centre and one black scalloped edge onto the corners of the back panels.
  To make the cake 
1)    Using the eCraft, Fundamentals 1 image card and white Bazzill cut 2 x 3 ½”circles, 2 x 2 ½” circles and two 2 x 2” circles. Attach ½ inch strips of white Bazzill across the centre of one circle and then bend over at the edges of the circles. Bend this strip again so that it measures 1” high and glue the other circle to the strips.  This gives you a platform to glue the cake sides on to.
2)    Using a 12” x 12” piece of white Bazzill, punch a decorative edge along one side and then cut it so that the edge will sit up above the edge of your cake platform  Glue all the way around your cake.
3)    Repeat this step with the other two cake platforms.
4)    Glue the three cakes together and decorate as desired then glue to the inside centre of the box.
To finish the Explosion Box add rhinestones and greetings of your choice.

Valentines Day Gift Box

Valentine’s Day Box
For this project you will need:
4 pieces heavy chipboard 4cm x 10cms (sides)
1 piece heavy chipboard 4cm x 9cm (base)
1 30cm x30cm sheets of 2 different patterned papers to cover the inside and outside of the boards .
I have used Bazzill patterned paper .Love birds on the outside and Sweethearts flowers on the inside

Embellishments of your choice
Stamp pad
Glue /double sided tape/modge podge
Sanding block
Instructions
Cut the paper slightly larger than the boards and attach to the outside with glue/doublesided tape/modge podge.
Turn over and repeat on the other side of the boards.
Allow to dry and sand all the edges for a neat finish.
Ink the edges with a matching ink pad. You may need to do this several times for a good coverage depending on the colour you are using. (see photo below, this is after one inking)
Punch a hole in each corner of the 4 4cmx 9cm boards. Do not punch holes in the base.


                                           Now you are ready to assemble and decorate the box. If you prefer youcan run a line of glue along the sides for a better hold or you can just tie the ribbons on each corner. This will depend on what the box is going to hold.

 I have used Spellbinders Nested hearts, punched hearts and butterfly stickers on all four sides as well as a greeting from Bazzill Valentines Back and Front paper.

Craft Mad Card Sketch Challenge Valentines Day

Sketch Challenge time at Craft Mad. As Valentines Day is coming up soon, this months theme is Hearts .
Here is my card for the month.
I have used a 6"x6" card and cut a heart shape from the front using a Spellbinders Nested Heart. I added a layer of red card inside with a cuttlebugged layer on top of that. I then suspended a heart on a ribbon in the aperture. Finished with a Sticker Store greeting.
