Have you ever made an Explosion Box before? This was my first attempt and I love how fun it was to make and decorate!
I found a great tutorial and tweaked it to make it my own. I have a hard time following directions exactly. I like to experiment and see how many embellishments I can add. I learned a few things along the way with this one that will help me when I made another one. This one is a little too full and doesn't close very easily, but I couldn't stop myself from adding lots of embellishments!
My family photos are peeking out, so that you can see that I made the flaps into pockets. The stamps are all animals from a variety of Gina's stamp sets. They are all colored in with Koh-i-noor pencils, OMS, and blending stumps. Then, I went a little wild with the embellishments - googlie eyes, flock, glitter, ribbons, paper punches, liquid applique, flowers, mini eyelets, brads etc. It's really busy!
The cover has flock for grass and the bunnies have liquid applique for fluffy tails. Love the texture both of these elements add to my projects! The paper is all Stampin Up: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, River Rock, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White solid cardstocks and Porcelin Prints Designer Paper.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your day!
