Handcrafted Exploding Box – 80th Birthday #Handmade

We were recently asked to design and create an unique handcrafted exploding box design for a gentleman’s mother in laws 80th birthday, we were asked to create make of her life experiences and loves, and it’s safe to say this lady has had a very varied and exciting life.

The customer specifically asked for a floral centrepiece so this was created using silk flowers glued into a small container.

Over the years the lady’s occupations have included nurse, candy floss maker, bingo caller and taxi driver.

Her favourite drink is vodka and orange juice.

Her favourite flowers are poppies and daisies.

She is a huge Manchester United supporter.

We were asked to include her starsign (Taurus) and an 80th birthday element, together with a birthday message.

Here is the finished keepsake exploding box.
