This post is the 3rd part of the little birthday surprise I planned for my little sister. You can find the 1st part here and 2nd part here.
So continuing with the gifts.... In this post I will show you the explosion box I made for her...
The box is made with mount-board as I wanted it to be strong enough to withstand the rough handling of the courier company people... I cut out all the sides individually and then attached them with broad cellotape. Then I covered it with dark purple CS. Then it was decorated with border punch cutouts, laces, ribbons & quilled pieces.
Inside of the Explosion Box...
I used mount board to make the cake base and then covered it with cold porcelain to give it a fondant effect. Then the cake was decorated with quilling, green ribbon and pearl white 3D outliner. I used acrylic paint to write the sentiment.
I used OHP sheet covered in glue on both sides and dipped in purple glitter to write 22. The butterflies are made with butterfly punches and then the silver glitter is glued onto them. I slightly embossed the wings to give them a 3D look.
For the tiny gifts I recycled some eyedrop packages cut to appropriate size and then wrapped with pearl and texture papers and then tied with ribbon.
She loved all the gifts but this was her favorite as she said that this was very unique and totally unexpected... :D She was so excited that when she went to her friends party yesterday she took everything with her to show them to all of her friends... :D
