Exploding Box

I'm still croaking like a frog and I still don't have a complete kitchen so things haven't improved much this week so far. Tomorrow, should I be able to speak I'll kick ass!
Haven't made an exploding box in a long time but I've had a kit stashed away waiting to be put to good use so decided to give it an airing.

Everything was die cut so all I had to do was pop it out, stick it together then added a ribbon to the tags.
I've haven't added any extra embellishments yet until I decide who/what to use it for - may give it to hubby and ask him to fill it with something big and sparkly lol

Challenges entered:
Bah! Humbug! - gift bag or box

  2. Gorgeous box - didn't realise you could get these in kit form - I have a template! Hugs, Claire x

  3. It's lovely Carol. I have never made an exploding box myself - think giving it to hubby and getting him to fill it with something big and sparkling sounds like a good idea though!! Hope you feel better soon.

  11. Hi Carol, Your box if fantastic just love it:) Sandra H

  12. Super project ... and from a die cut kit too! Much better idea than the more time consuming method of drawing around templates and cutting out - I cried many a frustrated tear when despite my careful measurements my first exploding box didn't work out lol! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
