Blo Hop- Magnilia-licious.

I've created a fun Happy Birthday Explosion Box for the Magnolia-licious DT's Blog Hop.! We're celebrating the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group's 2nd Birthday with 8 weeks of FUN Challenges, Prizes and Contests--you can find out more on the special Birthday Blog HERE! If you're coming to me from Cheryl's Blog then you're on the right track--if you want to start at the beginning then head to Suzanne J Dean's Blog!
You can find all the stamp at the Magnolia-licious store HERE!

This is my explosion box for a birthday party. I use inside the butterfly Stamp and the dog stamp.

And for the covert I use the princess Tilda from the fairytale collection.
A link to a tutorial for these Explosion Boxes is HERE! I resized mine to be larger---I used a 10x10" pc of cs for my box base. For the top you need a 6" x6" square of cardstock scored at 1" on each side to fit this box.
***BLOG CANDY ALERT---want to win these two beautiful Magnolia stamps? Then leave a comment on this post only telling me what's your best birthday party souvenir--along with whether you liked my box today too, hee hee!! You have until Tuesday to leave a comment!!**

Love it... Now Miss Tilda on the top so prim and proper you would never expect the explosion that awaits inside!

OOPS I forgot to tell you a birthday souvenirs.....
I love for someone to make HOMEMADE items. Like little candies covered with a stamp image and pp's to match as a band around the candies. Or cute little favor baskets filled with lots of goodies and still using magnolia images on skewer sticks in the basket.

What a fantastic idea for an explosion box! LOVE IT and LOVE YOUR BOX!! I think it would be an excellent birthday present.
The birthday present that comes to mind is a necklace charm I received from my boyfriend, now husband a heart with a rose!!

Alicia a dit...

love your explosion box and your tilda reminded me of my favorite birthday souvenir my 50th birthday crown. It look like tilda's crown except there was a big 5- 0 in the middle LOL!!!

Susan a dit...

I LOVE your box, it is different then the type of explosion boxes I know. How adorable!

My favorite Birthday party souvenir, would be ones I gave out at one of my children's Birthday parties. It was my youngest daughter 15th Birthday, and we did a sleep-over "scrapbooking" party...The girls were all told to bring about 6 photos of an event or something like that, and then I had purchased them all small scrapbooks, and embellishments for their particular photos (I was told ahead of time what they each were bringing)
I do not know if any of the girls stuck with it, other than my daughter, but, I thought it was a nice souvenier. OH, almost forgot it was also "Hawaiian Luao" themed and they plastic cocnut cups, with parasol umbrella straws to drink out of, grass skirt, coconut shell bikini tops, and flower lei's and flower barettes etc. they all took pictures and those were developed and made for all the girls, and my daughter took them to school, with a few tropical embellishments, and party embellishments, so they could scrap their party memories.

So cute, I love those stamps and your little scene is awesome! Goodness, I haven't gotten anything from a party since I was a little girl I have a favorite I gave and that was little coloring travel packs. I bought plastic, velcro pocket folders and filled them with coloring pages and supplies...years later I had people telling me they were still using them...I thought that was so cool!

Patti Jo a dit...

Such a cute box Cathia! Love the scene with Rufus, the fence and the floating butterflies! Terrific job!

TAS a dit...

Cute box and beautifully colored images! Love the butterflies! Favorite birthday souvenir was a plastic image of a teenage girl listening to her records that was mounted on the cake at my 16th birthday party. Kept it for years.

Diane Whitehouse a dit...

I just love the little scene you've created inside this box!

My happiest birthday party memories are of being surrounded by friends and playing lots of fun games!

what a beautiful box love the colours
When i was little i used to love the party bags we used to get especially if they had colouring pencils in them :)

MaryMac a dit...

I love the explosion box and the beautiful Magnolia images. When I was little I would be happiest when everyone received a little bag of goodies from a party. I was pretty unlucky and it seemed like I never won anything.

Irene Daryanto a dit...

Love the way you arrange the image inside, it makes 3D effect when you look at it. The best birthday party souvenir I ever got is a small daily journal when I was in high school.

Love your explosion box. I think the BD souvenir I like most is to take a picture of the BD girl with each of her guests and place them in a magnetic frame for them to take home. Rhonda R
