For today’s project I have 2 videos to share with you. In the first video, I’m making a simple exploding box … a great design if you’ve never made one of these before. It’s really more of a gift box and less of a card, as it doesn’t fold flat to go in the mail, and is spacious enough to hold a cupcake! And for those who love to see the colouring portion, I’m using Copic markers in a companion colouring video. Let’s start by taking a look at this new release stamp set by Kindred Stamps … Let Us Eat Cake.
After checking out some gorgeous paintings of Marie Antoinette, I realised she was really into some far out fashion and colour … and so I went with pink.

If you’re curious to see how I coloured these images, here is the copic colouring video …
I do hope you enjoyed this project, and if you make an exploding box like this one, I’d love to see it!
