Shaker Blooming Explosion Box by GDT Richa Maurya

Good morning Crafters!!

Today I am here to bring you some more inspiration for our ongoing challenge “Exploding Surprise”. Do check out the rules and guidelines for the challenge here.

I created this explosion box using Papericious “If Only” Collection. This explosion box can be a present for anyone you love. I have kept the theme floral and have added lots of flowers and butterflies.

First I created two layers and added pattern papers with distressed edges according to the color palette of the challenge.

On the first layer, I have added paper doilies and some simple punched out flowers. Photos can be added later. On the inner layers, I have added Scalloped circles from same paper pack and have stamped some love sentiments. Finally I have decorated these with some roses and leaves.

For the central 3D piece, I created a bed of handmade roses with butterflies popping out. The butterflies have been stamped on blue colored paper, fuzzy cut and attached using acetate strips. The bed has been created using a used-up tape roll covered with green glittery tape and decorated with leaves and pearls. Finally,I have added some diamond dust to give the blooms some sparkle.

On the lid, I have added a shaker element over a distressed paper doily and have decorated it with flowers and butterflies.

Hello guys,

Today I'm at the Rainbow Craftykari Blog, with an inspiration for the ongoing challenge. Do check the challenge here.

Onto the creation. I've created a Birthday Theme Explosion Box for a girl. 

I've used the Fairy Land Paper Pack by Papericious for this box. 

The first box, opens to one layer, with triangular pockets (made using pearlescent cardstock and Martha Stewart border punch) in the pack on the four flaps to insert photos. We've decorated these with some flowers. Inside this, is a smaller box, that opens to two layers and a decorated 3 D cake inside. I've decorated the inside with flowers, and some sentiment words like beautiful, love, enjoy, etc die cut using sizzix dies (on cardstock). I've followed the colours of the challenge for this creations. Some embellishments have been fussy cut from the sheet in the paper pack. The patterned paper was distressed before adhering to the base.

Floral Explosion Box by GDT Karthikha

Hello Crafty Folks,

 

I'm excited as I get you an inspirational project for this month's challenge - Exploding Surprise! Do check out the challenge post for all the rules and guidelines.

 

Direct on to my creation! I wanted to do an explosion box that will suit any occasion, be it birthday, anniversary, love, etc. So the best option was floral! I've used all the colors from the color palette for the challenge. The different shades are seen in the patterned papers and flowers used.

I started by creating the 3 layers with pockets to hold the tags. I have a mix and match of patterned papers from Papericious and other brands to suit the color theme. The middle 3d object is a small box filled with flowers. This can be used to hold tiny gift items too! A surprise inside a surprise J For the inserts, I have die cut scallop stitched circles and rectangles. The big circle tag has a mini flower brad attached along with pink satin ribbon. The middle insert is a rectangle die cut, which has a holder in the form of a flower. For this, I’ve punched out 2 flowers and attached them back to back with the tag sandwiched in between. The small circle tag has a pearl string attached to hold it.

For the lid of the box, I have used a chipboard element colored white with gesso. I kept it white to pop against the pink background. I’ve then added flowers matching the color palette











 

Here is a small video to show you the box in real!

Floral Vintage Box Inspiration by GDT Khushboo Gandhi

Heyloo guys! I'm so excited to be here! This is my first ever post for Rainbow Craftykari Blog and I'm extremely thankful to Maninder for this amazing opportunity.


For my Inspiration post this time around, I have a plain chipboard box that I altered and transformed into a completely elegant and floral keepsake box. We can find tons of posts on 'how to construct boxes and albums' all over the web, but it's equally important to focus on 'how to embellish' something. And so, for my post, I'll be highlighting certain features of 'how to decorate a box with a cohesive theme' + certain distress ink techniques to get a vintagey and bright look (for both the outside and the inside of the box). 


I had so much fun embellishing this box. It's so amazing that crafting is such a versatile art - we can create whatever we want, and decorate it the way we want to.













Brief Steps for 'How To Embellish A Box/Project':

1. First of all, decide what theme you'd like to go with - floral, vintage, fun, eccentric, classy, monochrome, etc. It could be any one, or a mix of a couple of themes together. For this box, I've chosen a Floral theme with a Vintage backdrop.

 

2. The trick (to be able to work well during your embellishing stage) is to gather all your supplies that resonate with your theme - floral/vintage pattern papers, flowers, box corners, metal embellishments, pearls, inks, fillers, etc.

 

3. Decide what pattern papers go well with each other, try and determine which design would go better for the top and the sides, the inside of the box and the outside. Contrasting your design papers and colour combinations is one of the strongest points in embellishing your project.

 

4. I went with an intricately designed paper for the top (since it's the first thing anyone notices) and I used simple designed pattern papers for everything else. 

 

5. I cut all the papers 1/4th inch less than the size of my box and went ahead and stuck everything in it's right place (leaving 1/8th space all over). The effect that you get when the background cardstock peeps through that 1/8th inch is absolutely enchanting!

 

6. I then added my metal box corners to the lid, some pearl trims, and loads of flowers on one end of the lid. I also added a clock embellie with some stickers, especially the one that said 'Traditions'.

 

7. For the front of the box, I added a 3d sticker on which you can write your name or a message. I also added some resin corners.

 

8. For the inside of the box, I contrasted it and kept it really simple (since the outside is so full of life and heavily decorated). 


Some Distress Ink Techniques to get you going on that beautiful Vintage look:

1. If you notice, all of my pattern papers on the outside of the box have an aged, brownish, vintagey look. To achieve that, I simply used an ink applicator with Tim Holtz' Distress Ink (Tea Dye) on my papers, moving it in different directions (circular, random, straight).

2. Since papers age/become yellowy/brownish in random places over the years, the idea is to replicate that look with random strokes of inks - so that our paper looks as naturally 'vintaged' as possible.

3. For the inside of the box, I used Picked Raspberry for the bottom and Peacock Feathers for the sides (keeping the contrasting colours in mind). I tried to create a vignette using these colours that I applied on all 4 corners of the paper in a circular motion.


Supplies used:

Tim Holtz Distress Inks

Kirby Teesdale Studio Paper Pack

Pearl Trims

Resin embellishments

Flowers

Metal box corners

Papericious clock sticker

3d stickers

Glue

I hope I was able to inspire and motivate you enough to go try your hands on embellishing a project today. Don't forget to share your pictures!
