Opening Day! with i-crafter Exploding Box Die

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to today’s blog! I am featuring the i-crafter Exploding Shaker Box and the Carly Alphabet Dies sets to create this fun Opening Day exploding baseball box.

I made this with my sister in mind. She is a die hard Chicago Cubs fan. The only way she and her boyfriend would miss opening day is… well if there were a pandemic, which there is.

Using the Carly Alphabet, I die cut a set of red and white cardstock letters to create the overlapped play ball sentiment.  I have it red lines to the white letters and white lines to the red letters with pens to give a baseball stitched look.

A –  I cut out two of the scallop circles and cut them to fit the corner of the box lid to look like the sun

B –  I hand created a baseball diamond and used markers foam tape, a craft knife, and piece of clear acetate to create the inside shaker in the outfield area of my image

C –  Using the pocket dies and a baseball themed printed paper, I created two keepsake pockets for the inside of the Exploding Shaker Box.  I cut two of the slotted pockets from yellow cardstock

D –  Using a red brush marker on white card stock I created a striped design. I die cut two pocket flaps from this  striped paper 

E –  I used a hole punch to created baseball shakers using the baseball printed paper and thick black cardstock. I glued three of the black cardstock circles together and added the hole punched baseball to the top

F –  I completed the inside of the Exploding Shaker Box by adding the striped flaps to the top of yellow cardstock slotted pockets.  I added the words food to one pocket and drink to the other pocket die cut from black cardstock using the Carly Alphabet dies 

You can see how I finished the shaker baseball diamond by adding baseballs in the outfield. I colored the ballpark with alcohol marker and white gel pen.  I have it striped green accents to the infield and outfield.

I hope you enjoyed this fun baseball themed  Exploding Shaker Box   I hope it inspires you In your creations.
