Explosion Box

Hi there!

I've done another video for you today, though it isn't really a tutorial it just shows the explosion box I made.

Looks gorgeous just as it is doesn't it? I'm loving the new Stretch Ruffle Trim in the new In-Colours. It gets even better - just look at the decoration on the lid! The Quatrefancy, Speciality Designer Series Paper is stunning isn't it - You get two window sheets in a pack. But they are fancy ones, so best saved for box making rather than cutting down for this sort of project.

That butterfly is actually sitting on the flower! Held on with a glue dot it is light enough, and the vellum is rigid enough... I stamped the image from Flower Shop and coloured it with my Stampin' Write Markers, punched it out using the Pansy Punch - I call it something else in the video as my mind went blank... But I wasn't going to re-record! The butterfly is from Papillon Potpourri and punched out using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.

Here's my little video!

It's amazing how much seeing something can inspire you! I love using the Brayer and Blender Pens!

Here is the link to Caroline's video tutorial here. I'm so grateful for her inspiration!

Here is a close up of those gorgeous flowers... I just could not live without Vellum and Window Sheets!

Do let me know if you give it a try and I'll be back with something else really soon!
