A wedding box

Another exploding box, I know, its getting boring now - but it is so addictive! I didn't want to make another square box. It had to have six sides, but how? Then I remembered that my son is an architect. I did not pay all those fees at university for nothing and it was finally time for him to prove that he did actually learn something. LOL He designed the box for me, made a template and all I had to do was print it out and use it as a pattern. See, its worth letting them study!
This box was an order from our pre-school. They wanted something different to a traditional card for a teacher that it getting married. I had to use ivory, brown, bronze and bright yellow not exactly my colours, but it turned out quite beautifully.
Put a lot of flowers on the lid. The brown ones were spritzed with glimmer mist. The dp is offcuts I bought in bulk from a printing company a long time ago. The cardstock is Bazzil.

And here is the inside of the box. Back and front looks exactly the same. The Magnolia image was coloured with my Copics. The staff will sign their names and write messages on the side panels.

A close up of the image, hope yoy can see the bling on Tilda's dress, flowers and shoes all done with Diamond Stickles.
Have a great week everybody, I am off to Stellenbosch for Drummie Nationals. I'll be back on Saturday, but I am going straight from the airport to Loftus Versveld (the stadium)to watch the Bulls play the Stormers (GO BULLS!!!) The kids bought DH and I tickets for DH's birthday. He doesn't know yet, but everybody, including his brother and nephew will be there with us. Should be a great party.


  1. Hi Tertia, your exploding box is G-O-R-GUSS!! I've just mae my second one, so I understand the "addictive" part. Watch out for my wave from my home in Pta, when you are at Loftus!

  2. You do this so good Tertia...I would also continue making it if I could do it as well as you do.

  3. Hi there Tertia, yip those varsity fees are paying off big time cos this is sweet- al -icious.
