Sweet Sixteen Exploding Box
Happy Saturday! I sure am tired today. Last night was my niece's Sweet Sixteen Party. We had an awesome time! Today I am sharing the exploding box and matching card that I made for Samantha. Here is the front of the box: I used metallic papers in two shades of blue, silver, & white. Here is a top view: The pretty sparkly paper is from J's. I printed the witch's shoe template at 50%. Side view: Check out the bling: I used Word to create the words around the box. Here is the box open: On the left panel is the party invitation. I scanned the invitation and then printed it to size for the box. The blingy 16 is from M's. The 'coach' on the right panel is from the Princess paper. There is one pull-out which is a HB wish from Wolfgang & me. There is a Manhattan Flower dress on the back panel. How about that cake? I made it from punched circles and strips of the white metallic paper. The flowers are from punches and the swirls from a Sizzlet. Yes, it was a bit time-consuming to make that cake, but I was quite happy with the outcome. And, finally, here is the matching card: Again, I used Word for the sentiment and made a Manhattan Flower dress. I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but I printed our birthday wishes in Word and then embossed the white metallic paper with the same embossing folder as on the front. Thanks for sticking with me through this long post. I wish you a wonderful and crafty weekend.
ETA: I originally saw the idea for the little shoes on the box here.
