Here's the details.
Carts and Materials
- Summer in Paris - Eiffel Tower, fleur de lis, crown, Paris
- MS Elegant Cake Art - Happy Birthday
- Paper - Timelesss Collection by Teresa Collins
- Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose
I cut the top at 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" so that it would fit nicely over the box.
I made a pocket from a scrap piece of paper to put money in. It could also hold a gift card. I then cut a small card to put opposite of the pocket. I distressed both pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tattered Rose. I cut out Happy Birthday (2.55" wide) and Paris (3.54" wide) and added them to the piece as well.
Now to the centerpiece - the 3-dimensional Eiffel Tower! This cut came as a 3-D cut. They made it with one detailed cut and one solid cut. I chose to cut out 2 detailed cuts which worked but was murder to put together. But I finally got it together and placed it in the middle of the box. I added some flowers and some bling and my project was complete.
Let me know what you all think of my first Explosion Box! Leave me some blog love and I'll talk to you later!
