Exploding box!

     This was a gift for my sister-in-law (mother-in-law got one too) and it was so much fun to make! The most difficult thing was cutting out the three layers to form the box...once that was done though, decoration was easy! It was one of those things you make where everything goes really well

       First, choosing favourite colours was a must and then finding treasured photos that would bring back memories. I loved hunting back through all our picture files....and then altering them to B&W. Rummaging through the metal tags box finding lovely embellishments and sealing it all with ribbon, string and a lovely flower!

       Opening the box, the last thing they expected was to find the layers of pages there to explore.

       I think it was a much loved gift....and certainly a very unusual one!

Thanks for visiting! Hope you liked what you saw and if you did please leave a would be lovely to know what you think.

I am entering this in the following challenge -


  1. Mine is certainly much treasured, along with all the other wonderful photographic gifts you have come up with - so many different kinds of album, I always expect you to run out of new ideas but so far that hasn't happened.....

  2. What a fabulous project! A great gift for someone special! Thanks for sharing it with us at TTCRD!


It is always lovely to see people visiting so I would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment for me - Thank you!
