Hello everyone! I'm Celes from GuiadeManualidades.com and I'm so happy to be here! Since I saw the Tori Collection I fell in love with it. I love the colors and design… It’s so sweet and so wonderful… So today we are going to make a special project to surprise someone you love for birthday.
We are going to make an explosion box… Fun and colorful! Let’s get started!
I made an explosion box of 5 sides and 4” diameter and height. But you can make it with as many sides and boxes as you like. You can use your electronic cutting machine, any other tool or even make it by hand. You will find a lot of cutting files and patterns for it. I decided to make a simple explosion box because I will include a small gift inside (some jewelry).
I chose two papers from the Tori Paper Pack and used them to decorate the exterior of the box. I added a mini tag from the die cut shapes with hemp cord and a bow of ribbon… love these kinds of details!
Time to decorate the inside of the explosion box!
Two new papers were chosen… I wanted it to be a huge surprise when you open it! I prepared a very special tag using some of the die cuts and one stamp from the stamp set. As you can see there is one “Happy” word stamped. To do that, you just have to cover the part of the stamp that you don’t want to be seen. I also added some pink sewing thread and used foam 3d to create different layers.
Then, for the center of the box the birthday cake die cut was perfect! A bit of pink sewing thread and some epoxy dot stickers and… it is magic! A wonderful decoration that allows you to put your small gift inside.
To finish this lovely explosion box I used the die cut alphabet. The “Bday” word was perfect for this. One letter for each of the 4 remaining sides… I used different colors for each letter and thin foam to add them to each side of the box.
Isn't it a lovely and fun idea?
Thanks for being here today!
