Explosion Box

After looking at a couple of different tutorials by different people I was able to come up with this wonderful explosion box, which I'm going to give to my mil for her birthday next weekend. Of course I still need to add a few pictures and sentiments to it, but I love it so far...and I know she will too, if for nothing else...the pics of all the grandkids that's going to be included!

The paper came from Marjorie, along with the perfect pearls...which you can't see too well, but I dotted it on all the corners of the box.

The explosion box tutorial came from Alicia's blog and if you click on her name, it'll pop up...she did a fantastic job with the directions. I'm really starting to love our monthly projects!

The flowers are from Kathy Orta's video on youTube...she did an awesome job on the directions. Another reason to fall in love with my Cricut!
