Explosion Box Hop!

Sunday Greetings!

Ashley has brought together a lovely group of ladies to showcase some explosion box ideas today.  

I had never made one and thought this was the perfect incentive to try it.  But, boy, when the time came to actually do it, I freaked! lol

So, here is my first attempt...
TCP Studio papers & elements.
I created a little stand to pop up my felt "surprise", and it folds up nicely when the box is closed!  I had quite a few revelations after making this design.  lots I could have done differently, but then I think that about all my designs!  :)

Slip a few dollars under the "Surprise" & this makes a fun birthday gift! 


Time to see some truly fabulous explosion boxes now...
If you're arriving here from Jamie's blog, you're right on track!  If you need to start at the beginning, hop over to Ashley's blog, she's our hostess & has all the hop details & PRIZE info!


Thanks so much for stopping by, your next hop stop is Lucy!

full hop list HERE!

Enjoy your day!
Blessings!
