Blue explosion box

P1050361This Christmas, I made explosion boxes for my siblings.   I started out by going through my svgs and cartridges and picking out images that I just was dying to use.  I made several of each.  Then I chose the papers I wanted to use — really great paper that I had been hoarding – to do most of the work.  When I had the papers chosen, I made the boxes with coordinating card stock and just decorated away.  It was so much fun!!  Altogether I made six boxes.  I think I have shown you two so far — the nativity one and this red one.

Here is the blue one featuring paper from My Mind’s Eye Wonderful Winter paper stack:

I left plenty of pages blank for journaling and pictures.  I’ll show you the green and red explosion boxes on another day!
