Birthday Exploding Box

Good morning, dear Maja friends, welcome to the blog today!

I have a birthday exploding box to share, for a certain lady who celebrates her 40th birthday today 🙂

The box is made with the Vintage Romance collection which I simply love for the delicate flowery patterns and a soft colour palette! I used pinks, mauve and green to create a feminine and elegant look. The lid is decorated with a flower bouquet and some butterflies:

When you lift the lid the box opens and reveals the inside with decorated walls:

One of the walls features a stamped and embossed lady cameo with the birthday date:

Another one has a pocket for some money gift:

In the centre I put a chipboard cake that I decorated with washi tape and mini roses:

As you can see, the main decorative motives of the box are roses and butterflies and I think Maja Design papers provide a perfect background for them. What do you think?

And here’s what I used for the box:

Maja Design papers:

Other: box base: Latarnia Morska; chipboard cake:; dies: Spellbinders; stamp: Waltzing Mouse Stamps; flowers: Prima.


That is all for today, thank you very much for visiting and don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for more inspiration!

See you soon 🙂
