Yummilicious Cakes and Birthday!!!

Hellos People,

It's been long that I posted anything, was busy making an explosion box, and it exploded out lots of good wishes and love and blessing for my elder Sis-in-law, for I had made it on her birthday.
She love and appreciate art in all forms and hence I decided to gift her an explosion of happiness on her birthday :) tada.... below is the explosion box I made. This is my first explosion box and to be speaking very frankly... I'm in love with them, they are soo soo exciting and fun to make and and... :) you love the look of awesomeness and happiness on someone's face when they first open it up.. :)

This is the lid of the box, I though of going with contrasting colors as they bring out a different spark to the creations :) Decorated the lid with some spiral roses and then added some sparkle to them... they got to be shining .. right :) Added some leftovers, like a silver ribbon which was a part of a wedding card once ... recycling and re-using .. it's always good to see  things coming into some good use ;)

Here's the love and happiness oozing outta the box :)  I made a 2 folded explosion box with the first layer containing birthday messages :)

I decided to make a 3-tier birthday cake as the center and added some punch cuts to pretty it up :) Then I added a small quilled rose to the top :)

The second layer contained some quilled flowers on one side and quilled balloons on the other end. The other 2 opposite ends had a snowman and some Disney cartoon struck to the paper which I took from a leftover pack of stickers :)

I hope you like my first experiment with the explosion box and yes.. I'm gonna continue making them... for they are lovely ... and fun :) I'm in love.. :D
