Vintage Romance Exploding Box

Hello, Maja Fans and welcome to the blog today 🙂

Have you already got your Vintage Romance collection? I must say I fell for it the moment I opened my DT box – the papers truly work their name, so delicate and romantic with the beautiful vintage touch! And as with all Maja Design collections, the set is universal enough to use for any kind of project. I, for instance, began cutting the papers to decorate a First Communion exploding box 🙂


I decorated the outside sides of the box with classic stripes as the background for delicate rose pattern and intricate ornaments on the sides of the lid. The top is decorated with flowers, ribbon and string bows:


I decorated the inside walls of the box with the Passion paper. Its delicate and elegant pink design is perfect for girly and feminie style. On one of the sides I added an ornate chipboard cross and a stamped girl image that I coloured with Distress inks.


Another wall contains a pocket for some small gift or money. I took advantage of the pattern at the bottom of the When I Saw You paper to add some more elegance to the pocket:


I placed a beautiful 3D chipboard chalice with the Host in the middle of the box and mounted it on a small pedestal that I decorated with the striped paper and on the sides – with the extra mini design from the back of the signature strip you can find with every paper 🙂 For the bottom of the box I chose the same rose paper as for the outside walls, only I took a sheet from the small paper pad to make the design better visible:


I love how it turned out, so delicate and elegant!

And here’s the list of papers I used:


I also used: dies: Cheery Lynn Design, Spellbinders; flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps: Lemonade, Whiff of Joy; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Anemone.

Thank you for visiting today and see you later!

  • WAUW this is soo sooo beautiful. I´m totally in love here again. You girls really need to slow down a bit, as I can´t keep up with all the fabulous things, you´re creating all the time, and I always want to try it all, but never have enough time to try everything ha ha ha.
    It´s really gorgeous and just as perfect for both a confirmation, a baptism and a wedding, and I´m sure the reciever is going to love it too.
    Wonderful work here, well done.

  • Absolutely gorgeous! Nicola x
