Wedding Exploding Box

Happy June 3 Birds Fans! Juliana here and today, I am sharing my first ever exploding box! I was inspired to create this as a wedding gift while doing a search for ideas on what to create and share with you using the new Midday Medley collection. I happened across the idea of an exploding box and I immediately thought it would be fun to create one with a wedding theme.

I created a pattern based on several different boxes that I saw online. I then went to the Midday Medley 3D Embellishment Kit to select stickers that had a love/wedding theme. I planned to use these to decorate the inside panels of the box. These stickers also guided my paper choices for both the outside and inside of the box. The roses on the paper and stickers most definitely inspired me to create the large paper rose for the top of the box!

When you remove the lid, the box “explodes” to reveal the inside of the box which also includes a gift.

I layered the 3D stickers with punched and cut pieces of patterned paper.

I created a money holder using a large scallop circle punch and smaller circle punch.

To create the large rose on the top of the box, I used my Silhouette Cameo and a digital cutting file. I cut the rose using a piece of cardstock from the Bazzill Basics Olivia Cardstock Kit. I then finished off the box top with a stamped die cut from the Midday Medley Timeless Stamp Kit and an organza bow.
