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!

Starburst Card Tutorial by GDT Neha Lunia

Bonjour Crafters,

Hope you all are doing good. It's an April month and Summers are approaching, So don't let the summers take away your MOJO. We have a way to bring out your mojo back.
Today, Our GDT Neha Lunia, in our Teaching and Learning Program, will be going to teach an detailed card to gift to your loved ones. Let's get started!!

Hi Crafty Folks,


This is Neha here with my first GDT post. I would like to thank Rainbow Craftykari Team and Maninder Kaur for giving this awesome opportunity to work with them. We all do have lots of pattern papers which are half used. So, this card is perfect to use them up. Today, I have tutorial post for creating this addictive and super easy “Starburst Card” with very few basic materials.

 

1. Let’s get started by cutting the pieces required for the card.

   1 piece of 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock

   1 piece of 3 7/8 *5 ¾ “cardstock

   4 pieces of 4*1 ½ “Pattern Paper (of your choice)

   1 piece of 2*3 ¾ “Pattern Paper




2. Cut each of 4*1 ½ “of your pattern paper diagonally by lining the edges up on your paper trimmer.



3. Place 3 ¾ * 3 ¼ “cardstock on your scoreboard along the long side. Mark on centre at 1 7/8” with the help of pen/pencil. Rotate 180 degree and repeat the same.



4. Apply glue all over on your 3 ¾ * 3 ½ “cardstock.

 


5. Line the pointed tip at the bottom and top of marked centre points. Once you have first piece in place then you can start adding other strips. Keep going and play around the combination.



6. Trim off the excess edges and you have your starburst ready.



7. Mount your starburst onto the 3 7/8 * 5 ¾ “cardstock. Line up your 2* 3 ¾ “of Pattern Paper below the starburst with help of any adhesive of your choice.



8. Place 8 ¼ *6” cardstock on your scoreboard with the long side on top and score at 4 1/8” and fold along the scored line.



9. Mount your starburst onto the folded card with help of adhesive. Decorate the card with die cuts, laces, trims, flowers or sentiments as you prefer. Here, I have used my designer scissor and strips of plain cardstock to make the trim. I have punched few small 5 petal flowers and leaves. Have shaped up the flowers using embossing tool (you can also use rounded back of your ball pen). Lastly, have completed the card with cutting off sentiment from the same paper pack.

 




Hope this tutorial has inspired you to use some of your scraps of card and paper. Do share your creations with us at our FB Page
