I so enjoyed making those shower explosion boxes that I decide to make a birthday one for my sister. We don't normally exchange gifts so I decided an extra special card would be perfect. I won't wait time with a tutorial since all explosions boxes are basically made the same for the base. There are hundreds if not thousands of the box tutorials on you tube. What makes each one different is the embellishments used and the papers. Pick a theme and run with it. So this time the theme is Girly Birthday.
Isn't this paper fun? Awesome feathers on one side and then maps on the back side. It came from a paper pad called Rose Quartz from Prima. I made little pockets on the sides so I could tuck in little inspirational tags. In the center I made a little birthday cake from one of those battery operated tea lights. I just used washi tape on the side then glue tiny flowers that I cupped on the top. Here's a closeup.
Until next time
