A Box from Outer Space

June 09, 2016

Hello everyone!
It's Wiebke here today and I'm here with a new project! And this time it's not a card, but a box! I used the always awesome Alien Invasion and Blast Off stamp set for it. So let's get started!




To create that box, you'll need a little a short guideline on where to cut and fold which piece. I grabbed mine from a friends blog (Birka). It's written in german, but you can also look at the sketch to see how it's working :) Before I put together the box, I created the universe background while the piece of paper is still flat. To do so, you'll just need some Ink Pads (like Distress Inks) in navy blue, black and maybe some more colors for some lighter spots. When your background is finished, just sprinkle some white (and silver) splashes on it - they're supposed to be stars.



After that, I glued the box together and placed my elements on it and in it. When you glue your planets and aliens on a stripe of Acetate and all of your elements are like up in the air "flying" around. 



I especially like birthday boxes for boys birthdays. They're much more interactive than a usual card and the universe has some great male colors and also the theme is matching. I'll use that one for my brothers 13th birthday next week :)


I hope you liked it! Have an amazing day, enjoy the sunny weather and until next time :)

Since there are three monsters in this set, I pulled out a Slimline Staggered Rectangledie to be my base for this card. I cut it out of gold, black and white cardstock. I used the gold...
