Afternoon all! I hope you are all having a great day. Today I thought I would share a project I made last month for my Mum’s birthday. I always feel a wee bit of pressure when it comes to cards for family and friends to make them something special. When I saw people making these exploding box cards on Youtube tutorials I knew I would have to give them a try. This is only the second one I’ve made and I wanted to include some of the special memories from our recent wedding trip to South Africa. This was my Mum’s first time in South Africa and so the theme of the box was her South African adventure!
The outside of the box was decorated with a poppy print and a simple die cut. Inside I used photographs from our trip along with Graphic 45 papers and embellishments and a selection of die cuts.
I’m pleased to say that she was totally surprised and loved it so much she has been carrying it around in her handbag to show people!
Anyway I hope that you like it too? Have you made any of these exploding box cards? Do you also feel the pressure to make something that little bit more special for friends and family? Thanks for stopping by and hopefully see you again soon. Bye for now
