Now a little while ago Carolyn, from Crafts by Carolyn's asked if anyone had made an exploding box recently. You can find the instructions to make these on the page I have just linked!
Now, I have never tried one of these before but her question got those old cogs working and I thought I might attempt one to give at a Wedding we are going to next month. The instructions are quite simple, I start this yesterday afternoon and have so far, managed to finish decorating the outside of the box.
I inked up an embossong folder with pink ink, then attacked the edges with Brilliance Coffee Bean, followed by Metallic rub ons to give it a distress "vintage" look....well that was the idea anyhow!
Spot my flower made with scraps of pink papers using Tattered Flowers Decorative Strip and two of my little heart tags that I made yesterday were put to use too.
Now I have to decided what to do inside!!!!!!!!! Now I want to leave it pretty basic so that the happy couple can put in pictures of their special day, so just a few basic embellies and some personalisation I am thinking at the moment....but we shall see. I normally just go with the flow.
My litte box meets the challenges from;
Just keep on creating - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Challenges2 - Distressing
Right, have about 30 minutes creative time left before my peace and calm are broken!
Hopefully I'll be back again soon to show the inside of the box.
