The twist is the cute little "flyover" as I like to call it. An airplane flying overhead to welcome home the new baby. Plane is from Cricut New Arrival. Clouds are from Pooh & Friends. I inserted small floral wires into the roof and attached the clouds and plane to the wires. You can then bend them how you like.
The wires cannot be seen from the underside of the lid as I created the roof and adhered it to a standard explosion box lid ... if that makes sense. So the wires are hid between the top of the lid and the roof. The wires do move around a bit, but a little hot glue might have taken care of it. Clouds are flocked in blue, then outlined with white Liquid Applique for added dimension.
The box is a little beat up and the edges are somewhat bent. I seem to have trouble getting the edges to line up and stay perfectly flat, anyway. :/
I used my Gypsy or DS one to create the nursery window. I then added vellum for the "glass" and added decorative cardstock to complete the look.
WARNING...the inside is not done and leaves a LOT to be desired. But you can kind of see where I was going with it. Needs a lot more color and detail.
I got as far as a simple crib and rocking horse, but there is soooo much more you could do to make an adorable nursery.
Ideas for other explosion boxes with cute little fly overs ...
Halloween ... with a witch on her broom and a big moon...Christmas ... with Santa's sleigh and reindeer. A tooth fairy would be cute, too. Lots of possibilities. Hopefully you have been inspired to create one. I would love to see it if you do. :)
