Good morning, Maja Friends, welocme to the blog today 🙂
May is traditionally a month of the First Communions in Poland. Every May Sunday in various churches a group of kids receive the Sacrament and then celebrate with their faimilies with festive dinner and presents. Money and jewellery are quite popular First Communion gifts and I designed exploding boxes to give them a nice packaging 🙂
Here’s the girl’s version:
I decorated the box with Celebration papers:
The lid is decorated with a flower bouquet and a stamped sentiment embossed with golden ep:
When the lid is removed, the walls fall open and reveal the inside. There’s a stamped, embossed and hand-coloured image of a First Communion girl:
…a small gift pocket:
I also added a panel with a stamped poem, whilst in the centre I placed the chalice decorated with flowers:
The girl’s version is traditionally in the pink palette – I also made a boy’s version in blues:
The design is basically the same, of course the stamp is different 🙂
I really like how the Celebration collection provided delicate flower patterns for the girl’s box, but also elegant flowerless motives for the boy version 🙂
And how do you like the boxes?
Here’s the list of my supplies:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Spellbinders, custom vine die; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade; washi tape: Dekoracyjna Taśma; bling: Marianne Design.
