Explosion Box

Last night I completed my first "Explosion Box".  I definitely will be making these again....if you haven't tried making one and enjoy paper crafting it is worth trying at least once. Click HERE for a pdf of the tutorial.


Completed Box


I sprayed the rose and the lid with Pearl Glimmer Mist!



Magnolia's Tilda stamped image is colored with Copic Sketch Markers and PrismaColored Pencils.  Wings are done in Crystal Stickles.
Click HERE to go the MAGNOLIA-licious store.


I couldn't decide which of the two exploded boxes to put up so I put both here so you can get a closer look at them.



I like this view as it shows how well the colored papers that I had in my stash go with my colored Tilda. 

Hope you enjoyed looking at the photos of my Explosion Box.  I am looking forward to making more in the future.

Happy 2nd Birthday Magnolia-licious~
