Star Box

I've been looking at the pop up 'explosion' boxes that have been appearing on blogs and decided to have a go and make one.  I've used double sided papers from the Lucy Cromwell paper pad and a couple of cuties from Lili of the Valley to make my box.  It folds flat to slip into an envelope but pops open with the side flaps hanging down.  I've added a sentiment and cut around the shape of it to create a text banner, and the stars are die cuts from a nesting set.

This project is to support the challenge at In The Pink where the theme is Ribbons & Bows.  I've added a band of bright pink ribbon around my card base, and a double bow to one side.  It nicely decorates the card when it's folded shut too.

Annette, this is a genius card! My head is spinning at just trying to work it out - I am hopeless at picturing anything in 3D! Your design is wonderful with those pretty papers and stars and the super cute image just suits it so perfectly. What a fab project ...
Happy Thursday...

Oh my goodness, I LOVE this! I have done a few pop-up boxes but the concertina backing for your design with the box on an angle is utterly brilliant; never seen one like this before!
