box loads of fun with Petal Promeade

Featuring: Exploding Box, mini Acetate box, Petal Promenade dsp, Share what you love dsp, technique, 3D, gift box, Stampin Up

I love exploding boxes. I originally saw a fellow demo Gail Ellis do one with Petal Promenade designer paper and I fell in love with it instantly.
SO ...I made one for myself using this lovely pink paper.
But then I thought what about a blue/green combo using the Share what you love designer paper.

and here they are....

 Also love the new Polka dot Tulle ribbon and pearlised doilies.
 the flower on top of this one was easy. Just cut out some flowers from the designer paper.
The flower on the pink box...I hand made using the new Four-petal flower punch. Punched numerous times. Scrunched up and dampened a bit with water spray. Dried with heat gun and sponged with some Blushing Bride ink.
 Inside I showcased the paper and used one of our mini acetate boxes as a little gift holder in the centre.
 This one has rose scented candle tea lights...can you just smell them from here. hmmm. so sweet.

 And I decided to find something entirely different for this little box. Some pretty metallic green and blue paper clips and some sweet blue binder clips for the home office.
 Little note cards made for two sides that slide out so you can add your own greeting if you wish.
I used stamps from Botanical Bliss.

 And here is quick one I made for a workshop demonstration.
Butterfly is in Merry Merlot (new neutrals colour)

Inside. No gift box needed. This paper is so pretty.

And then...a card. Slightly smaller. Idea from Rhonda Wade. 
This is a Smoky Slate base cut at 13.5cm(vertical) x14.5 cm(horizontal) and scored at 4 cm
You place a strip of designer paper (4cm x 13.5cm) along the 4cm edge at the front.

 Then glue another piece of designer paper (13.5cm x 9.5cm) to the inside like this. (the double sided designer paper becomes the front and inside feature of the card.
Have a great day. Vx
