Mini Birthday Exploding Gift Box

Hello BoBunny friends!

It's Angela here to welcome you to the blog. Today, I would like to share with you a tiny cute project I made for my husband's birthday, a couple of weeks ago. It combines birthday card, mini album, gifts and the fun 'wow' effect of an exploding box. I made it with Count The Ways collection that I found perfect for the love theme of this little creation.

Opening the little box, the first you get is the surprise, of course. The box is stuffed with embellishments, tags and fringes on each of the flap and pocket. In the middle of the box there is enough space to hold a little object or a candy. Consider this for an extra surprise!


The box closed is a cube of 2 inches, without considering the embellishments on top. When it spreads, it measures 6 x 6 inches. In fact, I made it using the Count the Ways 6x8 paper pad. 


Inside, I decorated the center with a scalloped circle punch and the XO letter in pink glitter. On the flaps of the box, I adhered lots of stickers, chipboards and many 'I Love You' phrases that I fussy cut from paper Count The Ways I Love You. 


This paper contains the 'I Love You' phrase written in many fonts and colors and, if you are like me and love fussy cutting, it's perfect to decorate the mini.


Inside the flaps, I created small tags with colored backer twine, attached with a tiny attacher. On the tags, I placed some photo of 'us'. It's incredible how many different pieces can contain such a small project!


Not all the tags contain photos. Some of them hold the gifts for my hubby. The sticker sheet of Count The Ways collection have some cute tickets that were perfect for the occasion, especially during this quarantine time, where we are all at home with no possibility to go shopping.


Here is a close-up of the tags. They are a pretty cute gift, right?


On the lid of the box, I created a rosette with a heart and a crystal heart on top. Along the side of lid, I adhered a strip of paper with a lace effect. I made it using the beautiful heart lace that is in the stamp set of the collection. Last, I inserted a little Happy Birthday tag and voilĂ !
