Wedding Exploding Box

Posted by Maja Nowak

24 July, 2022 -

Good morning, Maja Friends, and welcome to the blog today! 🙂

Summer is traditionally the peak of the wedding season and therefore wedding cards and boxes are always  under construction on my desk 😀 Today I bring you one such box I made using the beautiful Everyday Life collection:

I selected pastel papers for the walls and lid, and also added embossed stripes of paper for more texture – don’t they look great?

On the lid I placed a cluster of flowers in matching colours that surround a stamped and heat-embossed sentiment. The leaves are die-cut from the Monochromes green papers:

For the inner walls of the box I chose the beautiful pastel beige leaves pattern, so perfect for the background! I added pockets for putting money into and also a panel for writing in short wishes:


Instead of the usual chipboard cake I put into my wedding boxes, I added a cute bridge with the newlywed couple on it and decorated the scene with mini roses and die-cut leaves:

I’m really happy with the result, the box turned out bright and elegant with pastel colours and pops of bold red both in the paper pattern and the flowers 🙂

And here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; chipboard: Anemone; dies: Spellbinders, Magnolia, CreaLies; stamp: Lemonade.

That’s all for today, thank you for visiting and see you soon!
