A Sweet Birthday Surprise!



Today is a super very happy Friday. I have the day off from work so I will get to play today! Yeah! Earlier this week I mentioned that I had Birthdays on the brain... well here is one more, and for now the last birthday surprise I am going to share this week.



When I first saw this Celebration Tilda I knew I wanted to make her something extra special, something really festive. This is my first try at an Explosion Box and I love it! Now I want to make more!!







Everything about the box was fun to decorate. I made all the roses with my Tattered Floral die by Tim Holtz. I used the cutest Sassafras paper I found at my local scrapbook store. And here's something new I learned...I went into the shoppe looking for acetate because I wanted streamers to pop up. What I had at home was to flimsy and what the store stocked was to thick BUT she suggested that I used the plastic covers some of our papercrafts and markers come in. She pulled a piece out of the scrap bin and TADA is was perfect!! Many of you probably already knew to keep your plastic covers and are probably saying "Well DUH" but I sometimes live under a rock...LOL!!



All in all, Thank you KAREN!! You helped finish my idea in my head!






Today is Fussy and Fancy's Challenge too. Our theme is Sweet Treats. I loaded the inside of this surprise with Hershey Nuggets, YUM!!




Come join us for some fun! I always am excited to see what everyone comes up with. And let me know what you think of my chocolate yummy box. I'm off to find the bag of left over chocolates...

  9. Fabulous Lisette! I should try this for my g-kids... they'd love it! I just put away a stash of packaging yesterday! I get laughed at for keeping that stuff but it has come in handy so many times! lol Beautiful Tilda coloring and I love that you wrapped the chocolates! I need to click to see how you kept the curling ribbon up! TFS! So glad you linked up to the ATS Magnolia Challenge, "let's celebrate birthdays"! Thanks for playing!
