Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
Easter passed, so that means we’re now entering the First Communion season which in Poland is usually in May. And so cardmakers are busy with making invitations and cards or other keepsakes. Today I bring you a First Communion exploding box:
I used papers from the Miles Apart collection, selecting neutral creams and greens so that the box can be given either to a boy or a girl. I decorated the lid with a stamped and embossed sentiment and a flower cluster. The outer walls feature two gorgeous damask patterns:
Once opened, the box reveals inner walls covered with delicate srping leaves pattern of the Be Safe sheet.
I decorated the walls with a die-cut Host with some vine leaves and flowers, a stamped Eucharistic song:
… a pocket for money or a small gift and stamped wishes:
In the centre I put a chipboard Eucharistic chalice deocrated with flowers:
I really like how delicate patterns and subtle colours of the papers provided approriate background for white and gold decor of the box!
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: CreaLies, my stash; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Agateria, Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec; washi tape: Dekoracyjna Taśma.
That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
