cards, Explosion Box

Explosion box- birthday card.

Hello everyone,

I’m so excited to write my first post and as I was thinking what I should make for my first blog post I was looking through some old pictures of my artworks that I had created for some custom orders and I thought this birthday explosion box would make a great post as everyone loved it so I thought I should share it, the pictures are not so good because I had not captured them with the intention of posting it on a blog but I tried to make them look good with my limited photo editing skills. I hope you like it!

Explosion box is a card in a box form which can be custom made to suit different occasions and celebrations. It looks like a gift box but it opens out after taking the lid off.


The entire box including the lid and round boxes for the cake layers are made up of white box board. The length and width of the sides and center of the box are 9*9 cms. For the sides, I used a chipboard shape as a guide to cut out shapes from cardstock that I have stuck using a foam tape to give a 3D look.


In the middle, I put a three tier cake embellished with my handmade paper flowers , lace, and pearls.The length of the bottom two cake layer box are 2.5cms and the top layer is 2cms. The diameter of the first layer is 7.5cms, the second layer is 5.5cms, the third layer is  3.5cms. The paper I have used is from the Papericious vintage rosewood premium collection.

Closer look:






The finished box looked like this, on one side I have stuck the picture of the birthday girl and for other sides, I printed some birthday quotes on cardstock and stuck all of them using foam tape.



Thank You for visiting!.

Heena xoxo.
