Explosion Box

For my class this weekend we are making an Explosion Box. I had seen a tutorial for it at Splitcoast Stampers but found an alternative tutorial here at Connie and Mary’s Blog that I used for my box.  I have used Bella Rose DSP and cardstock in co-ordinating colours- Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette.


Here is my box all put together. I am still thinking about adding some “words” to the outside of the box…but I am still contemplating what they will be.


For my box, I decided to add my own little touch of adding a belly-band to each of the inside layers. This is with the lid off and the outer layer down.


This is with the second layer down. I added a cardstock and a DSP mat to the photos and another belly-band.


This is the last layer down. As this is the smallest layer, I didn’t add any matting for my photos. I did put some words to describe my kids in the inside square.

So there you have it….my Explosion Box with a Chrissie twist!

Very cute, Chrissie. I like the belly bands.
