My brother turned 40yrs old a few days ago and as he is a board game fan, we got him the Hogwarts Battle – The Monster Box of Monsters. I also made a matching card and I am so proud of the packaging of the game itself, that I wanna share it with you too.
I started with going through my Lawn Fawn stash and looked for images which can fit the Hogwarts theme. I chose: Critters ever after, Bicycle built for you, Costume Party, Science of love. I stamped the images and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. The list of colours I used: BG8, BG6, BG4, BG2, BG1, BG05, GB4, CT4, CT2, BO4, BO3, BO1, BO05, AG4, AG2, AG1, AG05, EB8, EB7, EB6, EB5, EB3, RB2, RB1, FS8, FS7, FS6, FS4, DR3, DR05. I cut everything out with their coordinating dies.
I altered the book a little to look like the Monster Box of Monsters. I used a black Memento marker to add details, drew teeth with a white gel pen and added tiny googly eyes. It turned out super cute!
Then I created a Platform pop-up using a pretty Galaxy paper from The Rabbit Hole Design.
I added the images and also die cut 40 (Oliver’s Stitched 123s) from silver sparkle cardstock and adhered it on little acetate strips so it floats in the air. So cool!
I also dressed up the board game to look like the Monster Box of Monsters: I wrapped it in a furry brown scarf and used an old belt to old it together. I cut teeth from typing paper and inserted it under the scarf. For the eyes I die cut two circles from white cardstock and placed 2 large back buttons on them. Funny, isn’t it?
I wish you like it as much as my brother did! Thanks for visiting and hope you pop in again soon! Next week is going to be post-heavy 😉
