Explosion Box Rose Candle

Explosion Box Rose Candle

Hello lovely people!

Here is a very quick clip of my explosion box I made a couple weeks back. I found this stunning rose candle in the Range when shopping with my Mummy and bought it for one of my angels as her employee of the month present for May. She loved it and here is the clip of it being opened! (sadly such an amazing candle is not scented!)

I used 2 sheets of whisper white 12x12" (30x30cm) cardstock. Both sheets were scored at 4" (10cm) on all four sides. When scoring your lid just pop one sheet/scrap of cardstock between the edge and your lid so that when you score and put the lid together it is a little larger and will go over the base beautifully.

Once you have scored both bits, cut up all four corners, add adhesive and stick them together to form the lid. On the base cut all four corners off. 

Stamp all over the lid on the outside. Choose whichever colours/stamps you would like. I used the new in-colours - Berry Burst and Powder Pink for mine. 

I then layered 1 sheet of whisper white on all four of the inside flaps on the base. That measured 3.5x3.5" (8.5x8.5cm). Again stamp all over those and sponge the edges before adhering to your base. 

Then put the box together and add some ribbon of your choice. 

For the tag -
I used a 2" (5cm) piece of whisper white and punched it with the scallop tag top punch, it was roughly 3" (7.5cm) long. I stamped my sentiment using the eastern beauty set. That's the same one for the box as well. 

Where the candle sits I put on white piece of cardstock the same size as the panels inside the base, but, I cut a square out using the square framelits and adhered it with foam strips so that when the box open the candle sat nicely without rolling. 

Here's all the supplied I used. The ribbon is retired so I have recommended a current one in the list below.

Lots of love
