Hi everyone! This is my 2nd week as guest designer for Lili of the Valley Challenges! I really wanted to make something special on this special occasion:) This week's challenge theme being "Celebrations" I thought of an exploding wedding box which looks quite spectacular IRL. It's one of those rare projects I'm really satisfied with:)
I chose one of the most beautiful ever wedding stamps called Mr and Mrs and lots of these gorgeous digital Blessings Papers from Rosey Posey Studios. Love them! Luckily for me they are digital so they never end:)).
The box is made of cardboard- yes, I have a very good guillotine:), then acrylic paint was applied on and the panels which were attached after being distressed, inked, sewn and glittered. The box is a cube ( 5 inches per side) and the cake inside is 4 inches tall- 2 inches tall each layer. That's in case someone would like to try this out:) And just a small tip; when you design the lid, make sure you make it slightly bigger- say 5.1 inches to make sure it fits the box:)
I used various die cuts to make some picture frames; I also added acetate underneath and lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to embellish them.
Here are some close-ups:
The stamped image is actually the lid of the cake/box. chose to make it also useful:) The bride's dress is ribbon-pieced (no idea if that term exists...lol). I loved the way this glittered ribbon looked like so I thought I could glue it on the dress. I added lots of pearls and stickles for a more spectacular effect.
And one of the picture frames:
