Exploding Box

Mother-in-laws birthday on 31st October, so I made her an Exploding Box instead of a card.

Here is the box, bulging at the sides.


Take off the lid.

And it opens in a visual explosion.


With a butterfly and pictures inside.

Hi Char, try the web address above. I bought a kit, but will keep one box as a template. It looked pretty, then I decorated it in my own way.

Char, click the title on the original post, that should work. There are instructions on that page, they look pretty good.

Sue said...

Do you enjoy paper crafts, card etc.

Holy mackeral, how cool is THAT!!!!!! *eyes bulge. Sue, I admire your beautiful handiwork, you are very clever. Well done. I must admit, I have never heard of an exploding box, but I am very impressed.

Thanks Patty. Going down to Mother-in-laws today, hope she likes it, it has pictures of the boys when they were little.

Hi Sue.....I have done all sorts of crafts but never paper crafts. I think I will be trying this though. It really is cool!
