Yet another Explosion Box

Hello crafters

Here is an explosion box i made on order for a friend. After deliberating with the colours i decided to go with White n Red. It has a lot of hearts and can be used with the valentine theme too.

The Outside View

The linked hearts i made is purely hand-cut and glittered. Love how it has turned out. The box top has a gorgeous lace and a matching colour ribbon. Here is a close up of the linked hearts.

Glittered Linked Hearts

This time i have tried putting the layers criss cross instead of the usual type, here is the pic when u open the box.

And Viola...... lovely isnt it

The Open Box

For the layered hearts in the centre i used floral stem to make a spring and attached the hearts, now it gives a nice wobbly effect wen u shake it. Then i have attached a few hearts using ohp sheets.


I also made a card with spiral hearts and linked it. And for one of the pockets to put photos, i upcycled the red cloth from a saree and added few beads. 

Hope u all liked it. I really loved making it.
ps. most of the items i use are locally bought except for PP, but still if there is any query, ill be happy to help.

Happy crafting

  8. Your box is lovely, Sujana! I made some lately and I posted two of them in my blog. Yours explodes in a different way because the position of your pages is different. You can find mine in my Happy birthday and Mother's Day posts. Your box inspires me to make also a Valentine's Day box.
