Isn’t this wonderful? On to my creations:

To inspire you, I’ve crafted some festive wonders based on the Challenge theme.

Following are the three things I’ve prepared:
1. Exploding Box having a Gift Case inside.
2. The Wooden Box.
3. Envelopes.

Exploding Box having a Gift Case inside :
It’s a quintessential box for any occasion. A box that doesn't literally explode, it just falls open. Who doesn't want one? It’s an all new way to present a present. The box has a small case inside, which can be used to store chocolates or any gift items. Pictures & write-ups can also be added to flaps of the case.
I’ve made this box using Indie Chic paper pack; I’ve always had some special love for these papers as they are very beautiful & vibrant. I’ve also added the Gift Shaker Chippi on the top of the box & inside the Shaker. To add a cherry on the cake, I’ve added Papericious Sequins, which gives it a flawless appearance.

Materials used:

The Wooden Box :

The wooden boxes are the ideal gifts for any occasion. They’re multi- purpose box, can be used to store chocolates, gifts, messages, etc.
To make this box, I’ve used a MDF Box & painted it in orange colour. On the top of the box, I’ve brought Ethereal Paper Pack into play. For decorating the box I’ve used portraits of Ganesh Ji & Laxmi Ji which I made by printing the outline of the same, coloured them using colour pens & covered them using Papericious Crystal Clear for giving it a shiny look.

Materials used:

Money Envelopes:

Since our theme for the month is “Make it Festive” the first thing that struck my mind was money envelopes. They are something that are used in almost every seasons and festivals. I’ve created these envelopes in the shades of pink, orange, for which I’ve used the Ethereal Paper Pack, & decorated it using the fussy portrait cuttings of Ganesh Ji which I made by printing the outline of the same, & coloured them using colour pens & for giving it a lustrous look, covered them using Papericious Crystal Clear.

Materials Used :

Now onto the awesome creation by Chirali Shah. This is how Chirali has described her take: 
As we are in the middle of the festive season and our challenge theme is also related to the festivals, I decided to go for something cute and instant home decor idea, which will be loved by the kids.
Here it is, ‘Paper Rockets’ :

Material Used :

Hope you guys will join us this month. We would love to see your gorgeous creations using Papericious products.

Happy Crafting!
