June is an excelent month for a wedding! Especially if one wants to make a party in a natural setting under the blue sky!?Beautiful surrounding, birds singing, sunlight and gentle breeze –; nature best decoractions! What do you need more while attending such a wedding? Welldecorative pillow shams, a card seems to be suitable or an eco-friendly exploding box? Making your own is real fun! Today Crew Member Karina aka Gibonik lern us how to create such a piece.

I used exploding box base but you can easily make one yourself using a template (like this one: https://pl.pinterest.com/pin/292100725815553648/ ) and cardboard or kraft sheet. First I inked all the edges of the base with brown ink and folded the lid. Than cut all needed squares and rectangles from the kraft paper out. I cut them two mm smaller than the base on each side and also inked all the edges. Next I glued them to the inside and outside of the base using adhesive tape. You can use a tacky glue as well, just be careful with the amount of glue otherwise the paper could ripple.?

I prepared some cheescloth and glued it to all inside squares.

In the meantime, I chose few chipboards for decoration and decided to give them some glam with the glimmer mist. I also cut four drawers with inscriptions suitable for the ocassion.

Next I started to work on the composition on the inside of the box. The pair of birds is sitting on little twigs which are a nice eco – touch.

I used twigs on the lid too. Together with burlap and chipboard hearts they creat a cute, natural look. I decorated each side of the lid with a border and chose the main inscription. “;Harvest love”; seemed to be a great wishes for a nature-loving couple:) I hope you’;ll find this tutorial useful. Create and have fun!
