Explosion Box

Morning all,

Yay: It's the weekend!

Recently had a bit of time and decided to experiment and make an Explosion Box. I've not made one before but like the idea of how you take off the lid to reveal an "explosion" of something special inside. I plan to embellish the inside of the box below with pictures of my cute nephew.

I decided to use up my retired DSP called "Junior Varsity" as it's nice and colourful for children.

Here's the completed box:

When you take the lid off:

Inside, revealing the 12 x12 sheet of matted layers, without the embellishing:

Stamps: Seeing Spots.
Cardstock: Certainly Celery. Textured 12 x 12 Cardstock - Bashful Blue. DSP - Junior Varsity (retired).
Certainly Celery. Versamark Stamp Pad.
Accessories: Sponge Dauber, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - Brocade Blue and Bone Folder.
Box Size:
4" x 4" x 4"

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend in the sunshine :)

Bye for now,
