Hello Friends ('old' and new ones - thank you for following! x). Apologies for being quiet again but I hope to catch up on my blogging soon. I've now had my op and it all went well. Post-op was a bit tricky so I had to stay in hospital a tad longer than expected. The recovery has also been taking longer than expected...sheeesh. But I am getting there! Yay!
My biggest heartfelt thanks to everyone who's sent beautiful cards and lovely supportive messages by email, text and on Facebook. I got some beautiful flowers delivered, too! You guys are true gems - thank you again!
In all the hospital kerfuffle I didn't get a chance to share this wedding gift project which was recently commissioned by my friend. My instructions were that the Bride loved shabby chic, lace and hearts. Oh and that the card should have a matching box. I think I met all the requirements :).
I frequently come across beautiful exploding boxes in blogland but somehow I’d never thought of making one myself. Perhaps I mistakenly assumed it was really difficult – but it isn’t at all! If you’ve never tried it I hope this project will inspire you to have a go.
I made a full tutorial for this project which I shared last week on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's blog. I would be delighted if you found a moment to view it HERE and let me know what you think :). The inspiration for the 3D birdcage came from this beautiful project from Dora which you can see here.
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L supplies I used:
E-Z Dots® Mini Permanent, Crafty Foam Tape – White, Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix White, Mounting Squares – White, DODZ™ – 3D, Creative Photo Corners – Black, 3D Foam Squares – Black, DODZ™ - Small, E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips, 3D Foam Hearts and 3D Foam Leaves.
Can you see little eggs hidden in the nest?

Witajcie kochani i dziękuję za wizytę. Dzisiejszy post jest troszkę opóżniony po mojej wizycie w szpitalu i planowej operacji. Ale dzieki temu, że powoli wracam do formy mogę się w końcu podzielić moimi ostatnimi craftowymi wyczynami.
Ten projekt to ślubny exploding box przygotowany na zamówienie. Pełne instrukcje (po angielsku) możecie przeczytać na blogu Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tutaj. Serdecznie zapraszam!
I hope you enjoyed peeking inside this exploding box. Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments! :). Big crafty hugs
