Explosion Box

Hello all.. I'm back with another creation. Yesterday was our 3rd anniversary :) It's been 3 happy years with my lovely husband. I wanted to make something special for my husband. I've been wanting to try out an explosion box for quite some time and decided to give it a go. So here is my anniversary explosion box.


To embellish the lid, I used a few punched flourishes. I added a diecut and wrote "Happy Anniversary". The glitter is a 3D liner.



The outside of the box is pretty CAS with a few hearts on a couple of side.

I used the Filigree Heart stamp from Lili of the Valley and used 3D glitter outliner on it.

On the inside, I wrote some quotes about marriage and added some charms on each side.


The puzzle piece and birds charms are from Blue Moon beads. The small glass bottle is from Pinque Peacock. The black ribbon is from my stash.





The centerpiece is a lattice arch with creepers on it (stopped myself from adding flowers on it). Added some flowers on the floor too.



The arch is perfect to hold some message.


What do you think of it? Please leave your comments and thoughts.

Wish you a very Happy Anniversary Berina. It's great that you made something this beautiful with your little one :). The lattice arch with those cute creepers is my favourite :). It looks so real and brings the feel of church during a wedding ceremony :).

Jasleen said...

Happy Anniversary, Berina. Such a lovely and sweet explosion box :)
Just a little suggestion if you don't mind, try using a thicker paper for explosion box. It'll look much sturdier :).
