New Baby Exploding Box




A personalised exploding box. I have used patterned paper from a Trimcraft It's a girl 8x8in paper pad. They are great for  these projects because the papers co-ordinate so well together. I have made  the boxes from white card. I have more detailed instructions under tutorials. I have covered the front and back of all panels with the patterned paper.  I have printed the personalised sentiment and other details and die cut them. It is  lovely to include them on a new baby project. I include the baby's name, weight, date and time of birth a well as the sentiment to the parents.

Here is a list of the dies I have used

3d shoes - Joy
Ovals - Presscut
Rattle - Sue Wilson
Duck - Sue Wilson
Shape with sentiment - The Works die set
Shoes - Marianne
Baby Girl - Tonic
Deer - Marianne
Bib - Sue Wilson
Dummy - Marianne
Sweet Baby - Sue Wilson
Rocking Horse - Tattered Lace
Safety pin - Marianne
Baby - Marianne
Tag - Joy
