My 1st Exploding Box

This is my very First Attempt at an Exploding box, I really enjoyed making this despite not being able to see the score lines on the Black card LOL.. It really helped using my Woodware Paper Trimmer with Cutting and scoring blades that saved me so much time. it still took me 2 hrs to make it and a little more time this morning to decorate the lid.

I used Bazzill Bling Black Tie and Diva and Doodlebug Black and White Wedding range, plus Dovecraft Hint of Pink, some gems for added bling silk flower and button for the inside and organza Ribbon with a Hint of Pink tag to complete this box.

i love all the cards hun, and what a stunning exploding box Karen! i really couldn't tell it was your first attempt - you are a pro hun!!

could you please tell me how to make them, as i would really like to have a go at them as i think they are great - but i'm not sure how to go about them.

i would really appreciate it if you can give me some help hun, but don't worry if you can't. hope you're ok anyway, and thanks for the RAk you sent me recently! i loved some of the papers, and ADORE the tilda ATC that was in there too.

i've seen some of those stamps befoer and think they are fab, i think i may have to have a go at making AT, or just use the tilda stamps. do you know where the best place to buy them fom is?
