Harry Potter Exploding Box

I'm not a fan of Harry Potter (I think I saw the first three films) but my friend Val is, and as it's her 60th birthday I made the effort and did a Harry Potter exploding box...
 Harry Potter scrapbook paper used on the outside and inside of the first box. The brick paper on the top of the first box is dolls house paper (used to cover the outside of a dolls house)
The stone walls and lid of the inside box was made on the computer as was the stone floor (I love my new printer, I can put 350gsm card through it no problem). The swords are dolls house miniatures, the sorting hat and Fawkes and the ribbon (the phoenix) were bought off etsy and ebay. The 9 3/4 on top of the box was a badge and the owl on the side of the inside box is a dress it up button. The newspapers, wanted posters and all other paper embellishments were made by me.
The 60 and fantastic beast creature were coloured with Zig Wink of Stella clear glitter brush and Sakura 3D crystal lacquer. The Fantastic Beasts font is available here.

Take care & keep smiling :)

My new Daughter-in-Law Phoebe luuuuurves the film Hocus Pocus...
None of the artwork is mine and I take no credit for them, they were all sourced from the internet. The broom is a dolls house miniature, as is the book (it opens and has spells in it !!!) the cat on the broom is a Dress it UP button and black glitter velvet ribbon is around the box.
Take care and keep smiling :)

Alien vs Predator Birthday Card for my Son

The Alien films are my sons favourite, whereas I have always thought Predator the best looking alien, and the picture on the front reminds me of Alex and his best friend Luke when they used to spend hours upstairs playing Xbox games ...
The card and box graphics are all computer generated from pictures sourced from the web.
