Melon Mambo Custom Gift Box and Birthday Card

Melon Mambo Custom Gift Box and Birthday Card

Welcome to week thirty-two of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!

This week we are showcasing Melon Mambo, a vibrant pink.

I gifted an ‘experience’ rather than a physical gift to my sister-in-law for her birthday so I printed out a voucher for the experience onto Basic White Cardstock.

I custom made a box to fit the voucher and used strips of cardstock to make a top for the box as I did not have a large enough piece of DSP that matched the colours in the voucher to top the box.

The top of the gift box was created using a square of Basic White Cardstock slightly smaller than the top of the box lid. I covered this square in an adhesive sheet and measured and marked the middle point of the square.

Angled strips of Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, Tahitian Tide, Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and More Dazzle Specialty Paper were arranged in a pattern to cover the adhesive sheet.

A die cut circle of Melon Mambo cardstock covers the joins in the middle.

A smaller die cut circle of More Dazzle Specialty Paper added a final touch of bling.

A very quick birthday card was created to match, using the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper.

I’m so looking forward to attending this Festival of Sydney event with my sister-in-law!
