Explosion Box

I have been wanting to make one of these for ages but usually too busy doing challenges or DT work so I thought todays the day. I got the idea off the Score Pal site, I've had my Scor Pal ages and haven't used it that much.

Enough waffle here is my "Explosion Box". I've done it in a Christmas theme as I intend to add pics to it after Christmas.

Here is the outside view, all wrapped up.


This is the top view , the lid


This is the inside with the pockets and tags, where I intend to add the photos.


Here is another view of the lid and inside the box. Excuse the cat's paw, she wouldn't move.


All the papers and card are from a kit I had from QVC last year (or was it the year before?) from Paper Adventures. The snowflakes are from Papermania and the stockings with bells I don't have a clue as they are from last year too.

They are really easy to do, all but a little time consuming but I think they look great. If you'd like the instructions you can find them on the Scor Pal site here
