Wedding Explosion Box

Hey there! I'm on the CutCardStock Creative Blog with an explosion box project! Have you made one of these before? It may look complicated, but is not really that difficult. At least the box part is not! Deciding how to decorate takes the longest, but isn't that the case for most projects? Well, it is for me, maybe not you.

CutCardStockhas some beautiful card stocks and I used a few different lines including Pop Tone Card Stock, which is on sale this month, Glitter Card StockBasis Card Stockand Curious Metallic 5x7 Blank Flat Card.

To construct the box you will need a 12 x12 inch piece of card stock. I used Basis White 80 lb Card Stock. You will score the 12 inch piece at 4 and 8 inches on 2 sides to form 9 squares. The 4 outer squares are cut away, basically forming a cross. This will form a 4 inch square when the sides are folded up.

We'll put the lid together next. I used a 7 1/8 inch square piece ofPop Tone SnoCone Card Stock. Score this piece at 1 1/2 inches on all 4 sides. This leaves a 4 1/8 inch square in the middle. You will want to cut from the outer edge to the middle score line on all 4 corners as shown below. This will give you 4 tabs. Fold the edges up, tuck the tabs in and adhere at all 4 corners. The box and lid are done and it's time to decorate!

We'll do the outside first. I die cut 5 - 3 1/2 inch squares out of Silk Glitter Opulent Opal Card Stock. 4 - 3 1/4 inch squares were die cut and embossed using Pop Tone SnoCone Card Stock. I layered the 4 SnoCone pieces onto 4 of the glitter squares and adhered to each side. One of the glitter squares was glued to the top of the lid.

I chose dies to use and I used quite a few. Some flowers and pearls are in the photo as well as the embossing folder I used.

To finish the box lid, I added a die cut scalloped heart cut from Pop Tone Berrylicious Card Stock. A bow was cut from the Pop Tone SnoCone Card Stock. A rose was added to the bow center. The sides are embellished with lacingborder die cuts cut from Silk Glitter Opulent Opal Card Stock. I opted to use a narrow strip of Pop Tone Berrylicious Card Stock instead of ribbon for the lacing.

The inside is next. I die cut 4 - 3 1/2 inch squares from Pop Tone SnoCone and 1 - 3 1/2 inch square from the glitter card and adhered as pictured below. I also die cut 2 hearts and borders from the glitter and laced with Berrylicious. 

I created the centerpiece with die cuts and acetate. The acetate was cut into a 3 inch square. I scored at 1/2 inch all the way around and folded up the edges. I applied a piece of 1/4 inch red line tape all the way around with ribbon over to hold the base in a square shape. The bride and groom were cut from Curious Metallic Cryogen White Card. The arches are cut out of Berrylicious card. I glued an arch and bride and groom to each of the 4 sides of the acetate piece. 

I added die cut floral pieces to each arch and die cut bows to the 4 corners.

The finishing touches were added using a few more die cuts, roses and pearls.

I hope you like my project and have given you a little inspiration! If so leave a comment below. We would also love it if you to connected with us on our

Special Friend Rocker Card

Hi there! 
Today I'm over on the CutCardStock Creative Blog with a project perfect for that special friend in your life. It is a rocker card design using the Pop Tone line of card stocks from CutCard Stock. These card stocks are on special this month, come in a great variety of colors and die cut beautifully! Have you tried making rocker cards? They're really quite easy, fun and quick to put together.

For my project I used 
Pop Tone COTTON CANDY 8.5x11 Discount Card StockPop Tone GUM DROP GREEN 8.5x11 Discount Card StockDCS Discount Card Stock: Natural Twine Kraft Card Stock , a patterned paper from Recollections, 2 die sets from Crafter's Companion and ribbon.

A rocker card is made with a round base that is folded in half. I used scalloped circle dies in 2 sizes. The larger circle is used to cut the kraft card stock, as it is quite sturdy and perfect for the base. The smaller circle die was used to cut 2 pieces from the patterned paper and the kraft card. I did this as the patterned paper is quite thin and I needed the piece The smaller die was also used with the decorative dies in the set to cut the green card stock. I pieced out the bird cage and bird with the pink and kraft card stocks. The sentiment is cut using the pink and green card stocks.

Layering was done as seen in the photo below.

The layered piece above was adhered to the folded "rocker" piece. The sentiment piece was added next. I finished by adding mini pearls and a bow.

The other pieces were added.

I hope I've inspired you to create a rocker card design!
