Hello there, dear Visitors to the Maja Design blog!

Do you remember the First Communion exploding box I shared last time? That was a girl version, and I decided I need a boy verion as well ūüėČ And so I selected some blue and brown papers and here it is:

I used the Summertime papers – and believe it or not, my choice was mainly because of this gorgeous roses paper I chose for the box sides :) Just look how beautiful it is! I also added some Sofiero papers as the collections go well together :)

I selected flowers in matching colour for the box lid:

The inside of the box is mostly the same as the girl’s box:

And so there’s the stamped boy image with the cross and flower cluster:

…the strip of paper for sliding in money:

…and a chipboard chalice decorated with flowers:

Maja Design papers are perfect for elegant or formal occasions, their subtle, classic designs and delicate colour palettes perfectly match the chosen theme. I really like how this boy box turned out!

I used the following supplies:

Other: stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Anemone; dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger;  wax string, bling, washi tape: my stash.

 

See you later!

Good morning, Maja friends, welcome to the blog today :)

May is traditionally the month of First Communions in Poland, so I’m making a lot of cards and other gifts these days. And today I have an exploding bozx to share that I made, as money is still quite a popular gift, and there’s no more elegant way of giving money than an exploding box :)

As you can see, I used the beautiful Sofiero collection – its delicate patterns and subtle colour palette are simply perfect for the occasion. I decorated the box lid with flowers in matching colours:

After opening, the box reveals the contents:

I decorated on of the sides with a stamped girl image that I hand-coloured with Distress inks, and a chipboard cross with the flower cluster РI die-cut hte  vine leaves from the green paper of the Monochrome pad РI just love this addition!

There’s also a space for writing in wishes, and a dimensional chipboard chalice, decorated with another flower cluster:

…and the band for sliding in a roll of banknotes ūüėČ

I really like the way the papers go with flowers and embellishments, giving a soft and delicate look. Now I only need a box for a boy! :)

 

Here’s what I used:

Other: chipboard: Scrapiniec, Anemone; stamps: Whiff of Joy, Lemonade; dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Distress inks, glitter: Ranger;  wax string, bling, washi tape: my stash.

And what is your idea for the First Communion gift?

See you soon!
