Birthday chocolate box

Hello my Sunshines,

Today I have something special to share with you. I’ve just completed another video tutorial. As some of you may know, we had a flu invasion at my home, so I just didn’t managed to film another canvas for my Mindful Monday series. I had a couple of cards to make so I thought, why not film them and share it with you.

Here is a photo of the box I’ve made for my dear friend John for his birthday and I hope that he will enjoy it.

Here is the link to my video tutorial:

And here is a photo of the inside of this box:

The box was made from a single piece of card, which I have cut to the size of 7 1/2 inch tall (19 cm) and 10 3/4 inch wide (27,3 cm), and then I have scored at 3 1/2 inch (9 cm), 4 inch (10,2 cm), 7 1/2 inch (19 cm) and 8 inch (20,3 cm). I have cut a two additional pieces in size 2 1/2 inch (6,5 cm) by 1 1/2 inch (3,9 cm) and scored them every half an inch on a shorter side (every 1,3 cm)

It’s a boy

Hello my Sunshines,

I love pastel colours, that is why I really do love making all sorts of maternity leave, baby shower or welcome baby cards. This is an exploding box I’ve made for my friend from work, when she was leaving for her maternity.

The box is 8 inch tall (around 9 with lid on it) and it has a square base 4 by 4 inches.
I used 12 x 12 soft pastel double sided paper, and lined it with pearl cardstock in the shade of blue, which I also used to cut out the sign ‘It’s a boy’ on the top.
All messages in these circles I’ve printed on the copy paper, cut them out and put some shiny blue foil over it using my mink machine.
All flowers and leaves are also handmade by me. I cut them out from scraps of paper and then coloured them and shaped flowers with shaping mould. I’ve added some pearls and stamens for extra interest.
The baby cot is also made from white cardstock. I’ve filled it with a piece of blue tulle, and I’ve put some lace ribbon underneath, which I fold in a rosette shape.
This is how the closed box presents itself from the side.
And here is one more look from the top.
I’m really happy and delighted from the way it turned out.

I wish to say a heartfelt thank you to all of you, for taking your time and visited me today. If you would like to see more inspiration please subscribe to my blog and if you would like to help me grow you can share this post with your friends. I wish you a wonderful evening and I hope to see you soon xx.
