Indian Quilling Challenge # 15--Box it up---DT post

Sunday, 15 March 2015

Hello friends !!

This month's theme at the Indian Quilling Challenge is to make any quilling project associated with a box. Like, you can choose to decorate a box with quilling, or make a quilled box itself, anything that tickles your imagination, but it should have some kind of box in it.

So, here's what I made as my DT inspiration project:--

Box on opening

I made an explosion box, but it's a little different kind of explosion box. Had never seen this kind of box anywhere, just an idea struck and I thought of giving it a try.

What's different in it, you may ask. Well, firstly, two of the four sides of this 2.5 by 2.5 inch box are transparent, that is, I have made an acetate window so that we can peep inside the box. :) And secondly, when it's opened, there's a cute little springy scene there, with all those little blooms ,the ladybug , the bumblebee, butterfly, etc. And except the butterfly, everything is quilled :)

Everytime I craft, my 3 year old daughter asks me, "Mamma, is this for me? "  So, I decided to make something specially for her, something she would like to look at everyday. To make it more fun and interactive, I have attached all the quilled elements to a spring, so that when she touches them , they  wriggle. :) ..She loved it and just couldn't resist opening the lid again and again to see the box open up to a lovely scene. :) Well, my biggest admirer likes it. What more do I need? :)

Hope you like it too. And I hope I have inspired you to create something on the similar lines. Try it, your little kids would love it.
And do share your quilled box projects in this Facebook album.

Have a beautiful day !!:)
