This is My Story Exploding Shaker Box

Exploding Shaker Box

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m back today with this fun little project I created using the Exploding Shaker Box and the Floral Garden Diecuts. There are written directions with photos and a video on how to create this Exploding Shaker Box that you can find HERE. I used an assortment of patterned cardstocks, stickers and embellishments to decorate my box.


After I cut out all the pieces to create this box I put them together according to the directions. I cut out several flowers and leaves from the Floral Garden Diecuts to decorate the outside and inside lid of the box.  I shaped the flowers, foliage and leaves with the i-Press Burnisher and Pad and adhered all together. I added a tiny flower with leaves to each side of the lid. On the top of the lid I placed floral chipboard pieces and a bow made out of thread along with one of the shaped flowers, foliage and leaves.


On the outside of the box I decorated two of the panels. I cut two of the scalloped circles from the Exploding Shaker Box Diecuts, added those along with stickers, sentiments and fussy cut butterflies.

The inside of the box I cut out two pockets and two of the flaps for the pockets but inside of using the flaps as closures for the pockets I used them as mini pockets.

I used an assortment of cut a parts, chipboard embellishments, buttons, gems, sequins and stickers to decorate the pockets. I also cut a small section of leaf sprigs from the Tunnel Card Base, Swan Diecuts and added to two of the pockets.

The negative space from the scallop diecut I cut a piece of acetate to fit and adhered to the piece of cardstock. I cut strips of Foam Adhesive and covered all the way around the square and around the edge of the scalloped opening and added a mix of sequins and seed bead.  I lined up a square diecut and placed on top of the foam adhesive. I adhered the shaker in the center of the box and added the “This is my story” sentiment to the shaker.

I cut a square and the leftover scalloped circle diecuts and adhered to the inside lid. I also added a thread bow and a flower and leaves to complete this project.
