We have a BIG graduation coming up next year. It will be wonderful to see this journey come to fruition. So creating this explosion box will be her focus piece for the next few semesters as she finishes up and prepares for the walk to get her degree.
This project is a feature piece on The Artistry. You'll find more details and a short video here.
The quill pen and inkwell are not found among the files at Creative Fabrica. However, I was able to create the inkwell using Blender and Pepakura. It was so much fun to see this one come together once I got the sizing right. I made the writing piece using basic shapes in SCAL 5. Both pieces were cut using the Skycut. A little embossing and some Mod Podge strengthens the paper a bit and adds some sheen.
The push button sound module by Invite by Voice really adds a pop to the box. You can actually activate the module by simply pressing down on the lid just a little bit or press directly over the button on the inner layer as indicated.
We chose the flamingo theme because one of her professors asked each student in the class to identify their spirit animal. She's always love the bird and it has been her spirit animal through this education journey and also helped her emotionally as she has had to go through some serious health issues (non-COVID) the past 2 years. There was a time we didn't think she would be able to finish, but with lots of determination, she continued and carried a full load and has done very well overall.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Hope you'll be spending some time in your creative space.
