Wedding Exploding Box

My blog post for the new challenge over at


A Wedding Cake Exploding Box.

This is my first attempt of an exploding box with a wedding cake.

It was easier than I expected

The measurements and instructions for the box is at my tutorials. I only did one layer of he box on this occasion to allow enough room for the cake and used plain card to cover the panels of my box.

I have used a template that I found on the internet and printed onto white card to make the cake,

I folded the template and glued with PVA. I used ribbon and a lace and pearl trim to decorate the cake.  I made the flowers using die cuts that I cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I embellished the flowers with flat backed pearls. I placed the embellishments on the edges and joins of the cake to make it look neater.

I attached the cake to the centre of box on top of a die cut scalloped circle. I used a Xcut die from a nesting set.

I printed personalised sentiments for each side of the box and cut them to fit and decorated them with the lace and pearl trim and the flowers to match the cake.
