Exploding Box

I have seen some wonderful exploding boxes of late from a lovely talented lady over at www.romantyczka-pl.blogspot.com
I havent made one of these for years - you must check her's out, they are amazing.

I have used my Cri-cut for the " IT'S YOUR DAY " - using matching paper for normal cut and card stock for the black out.
Papers used are from Panduro Hobby - Winterbird, so, so beautiful.

Lots and lots of Wild Orchid Craft flowers - which as you all know are a must have!
Coloured with Poly Pencils and blended with sansodor.

Not always the best creation to photograph, so I hope there is enough for you to see.
To make the box I used a 12 inch by 12 inch piece of card and scored at 4 inches and 8 inches, turned round clock wise and repeated the score lines. You will then have 9 squares. Cut away each corner square - use the cut-offs to decorate the box - don't throw them away.
To make the lid I cut a piece of card to 10 inches by 10 inches - scored all the way round at 1 and 1/2 inches. This will fit the box snug.

Do check out the latest releases over at Teddy Bo, there are some really cute Christmas stamps.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
Hugs & Loves
