Explosion Boxes

I have always had a fascination with explosion boxes so when I saw Scrappin With My Bug's explosion box, I had to have the directions to make it. They came in just in time and I made the one that came with her directions (didn't take pictures of that one as its on her blog) and then created 2 of my own. One for my boss because she survived giving up sweets for Lent (and she's not even Catholic) and the other for a really good friend's birthday. They both just loved them. Now to finish the one I am working on for my mom and step-grandma :-)

This is the one for my friend, her favorite color is green:

That's it for right now, oh and I just figured out how to add more than 1 picture at a time, sweet!! Yes I can be that slow :-)


  1. Ok these are just dynamite. The floral one with the potted paper flowers and those acetate popping up elements just made me decide that I must make one of these.... then I saw your chocolate one and realized that is the first time I have ever seen a box like this with an actual gift in it. I think you just figured out my Mother's Day gift wrap. You are so clever. Thank you for sharing these!!!

  2. Thank you Nadia, I am inspired by your work so try to push myself to think outside the box (ha ha) and go for something a bit more unique to make it special :-)

  3. They both look amazing! I love the centers on both boxes... very creative! :o)

  4. I LOVE your explosion boxes. I, too, have been quite facinated with these, but I haven't tried making one yet. You have inspired me.
