A young lady`s 70th Birthday by Eti-chan
A young lady`s 70th Birthday
A young lady`s 70th Birthday ^__^

I have everything written out: what, for whom, delivery date... but, this one chit decided to fall off the board.
But! Thanks to the Gods, for no reason I decided to make some hoovering yesterday and found it! *saved*
So I started yesterday around 18:00 (06:00 PM).  Took me the whole night to finish (I`m so slow -_-) - the last element was glued ~06:10 (AM). Lights out. 08:30(AM) rang the alarm clock. At 09:00 (AM) - raced on my bike to make the delivery... 
Never again! I will start gluing those chits with superglue or something, so they won`t fall off... I`m so exhausted, but YEEEEY! made it on time! 
40thBirthdayBox by Eti-chan
Another box... I wish I had time for a break (; _ ; )

My "artistic battery" is almost empty. The depression is catching up. Yesterday my mum, with full premeditation, dragged out all skeletons from the closet what ended in a big wrangle between us... I feel just tired... so very, very tired... 
ToyBox by Eti-chan
● I was asked to make an exploding box that would match a cushion, made from fabric scraps, that looks like a car. 
● I tried to use paper that has similar colours and patterns to the ones on the scraps...
● The "B" stands for Bartek - that`s the name of the boy, for whom this box should be. 
● The one flap is empty because the lady who commissioned this box want the wishes to be written by hand. 
● I somehow not pleased with the way it turned out ・(/Д`)・
Golden wedding anniversary by Eti-chan
Golden wedding anniversary
Fifty years together - isn`t this amazing? 

This box made me happy and sad at the same time.
Happy - because I thought those people must love each other so much that they stayed together for all those years despite all those ups and downs life serves us everyday.  I think when the older generations die there won`t by any anniversary like those. I know couples that struggle to get to their first anniversary, or are separated/divorced/remarried six months after their wedding day - and that`s one of the reasons that made me sad. The other one is... well, I`m absolutely not a girlfriend/wife material. I fail just in so many ways. To become an old and lonely canary lady - that`s my destiny. 
Test by Eti-chan
In a comment on my  Baby boy - exploding box Katara-Ikard said : "If the lid didn't have flowers on top, you could turn it upside down, invert the box, and make it a cube again with the carriage on top and the lid holding the flaps together on bottom."
I promised to test this and here it is ^__^

What I have noticed:
- it was difficult to bring the flaps to flex in the other direction and get them into the lid,
- cause of all the decorations on the flaps they went only like 3-5mm into the lid, so the whole thing was a little shaky and looked quite unstable.

I think if there where no decorations or they would be placed more toward the center of the box, so more of the flap could go into the lid, it would be a good idea ^__^
But from my experience with exploding boxes and people I think I would have to put a manual in each of them, so everyone could see how to invert them. 

The lid is, of course, from a different box ^__^"
