My latest obsession has been making explosion boxes. I needed a project for a design team application and it had to be simple, but sophisticated and this is what I came up with. I used heavy weight card stock for the outside of the box and the lid to give it stability. The inside layers are normal weight card stock. I chose patterned paper to decorate each panel. I will add pictures and embellishments when I decide what I am going to do with each one. These will make great gifts for anyone.
|I first decorated the inside of the box with some stamping in the corners.|
|I decorated the outside of the box with patterned paper and stamped my name to the bottom of the box.|
|Scored all remaining pieces to prepare them for making pockets|
|Top layer of pockets|
|Bottom layer of pockets|
|All layers together, but not decorated|
|All layers together and decorated and photo mats inside the pockets|

|Could make one for ladies without making one for the guys|
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects.
I have to thank Dawn from Dawns Inspiration for giving me the idea for this project.
