How to decorate Wedding Cake Exploding Box?

 During the wedding season, I receive many orders for exploding boxes with a cake.

These gorgeous boxes are in fact perfect addition to the gift, especially if the gift is - money.

On the sides of the box very often I make small pockets for cash :) 

The beautiful little paper cake inside makes it even more adorable!

When it comes to decorating it I usually choose papers in light colors, here you can see Lemoncraft 'Blush' collection, then I look for embellishments matching my papers plus white pieces or die cuts.

Handmade, unique flowers are always good option but if you can not make flowers, I would go for 
white, ivory, or cream Mulberry paper roses and smaller flowers in colors matching the paper.

I used Lady E Design cutting dies to die cut flowers and leaves. Flower4 001 to create a rose and Flowe 8 to make mint paper flowers, Leaves 8 for the leaves.

 You can see a combination of paper ( mint flowers on the cake) 
and foamiran (big rose on the top of the box ) flowers.

Super pretty and easy to use are laser cut chipboard elements, 
on my box I used Bloomar Designs chippies - heart, bride & groom:

Add elements like lace, string, pearls and your box will be delicate and romantic!

What to use to decorate Wedding Cake Exploding Box?
  • papers in light colors
  • flowers and embellishments matching the paper collection
  • lace, string, intricate die cuts
  • laser cut chipboard elements
  • microbeads, pearls, glitter
