#MakeitMonday Episode 15 – Mini Exploding Card Bird Ballad Box

Mini Exploding Bird Ballad Box Card

Hello and welcome to Episode 15 of my #MakeitMonday Series.  I just had to make another cute gift box with the Bird Ballad Suite!  This time, however, I’ve made a mini exploding box.

I went for the gorgeous Daffodil Delight cardstock and co-ordinating ink.  This is one of the featured colours repeated throughout the DSP used.


I just love this DSP!! Images in the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper were hand coloured using Stampin’ Blends for a soft, blended look.  The DSP pack consists of:

* 12 sheets of patterned paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm)
* Acid free
* Lignin free

Coordinating colours: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Whisper White





Cutting and Scoring:

Box – Cut A4 sheet down to 6 ” x 6 ” and score on all four sides at 2″
Lid – Using the other piece from your A4 sheet, cut a square measuring 3″ x 3″ and score at 1/2″ on all four sides.


You will need five pieces for the inside and five for the outside of the box (not the bottom of box, but the top of the lid) these measure 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″

3D Floating Images

I used elements fussy cut from a different piece of the lovely bird ballad dsp and propped them up with acetate. (see tutorial on how I achieved this)


Now I decided to stamp floral images from the Free as a Bird Stampset onto some plain vellum paper.  I used Daffodil Delight for this and fussy cut them out.  I also stamped sentiments from the same stampset in the same colour for the inside. I layered these sentiments up onto 1 3/4″ circle punched shapes.
