Graduation themed Explosion box

Hi friends...

Today am sharing an explosion box based on graduation themed. My friend's brother was going to the US for higher education and so she wanted it based on graduation.... so here is my take on that

Graduation cap based box

I loved the colour combo of blue & black for this. The tassel is recycled from an old wedding invite. i hav nailed it down with a brad.

The explosion

Here the centre is a flower pot.... the pot is actually a 'good night' mosquito repellent bottle. Wrapped it up wid washi tape. The flowers i got it in a local market... added blue pollens and a sentiment as touch ups. I hav used 'Fleur di lis' squares for the sentiments. For the other two panels, one has a white card stock rolled up with satin ribbon to represent a degree, this is an old scrap which and a had ink marks on one side, so i hav recycled it here. And the other panel has a badge, the rossette of which was made wid scrap pp... its a very small rossette as u can see. Hope it all does justice to the graduation theme. Do share ur views crafters.

Sorry forgot to take pics of the second layer here.... 2 panels have tags for personal msg, 1 had inspiring sticker words and the other a quote 'Chase ur dreams'

Thanks for stopping by and for ur encouraging words everytime

  2. Its AWESOME !! Each explosion box of yours has something new to it ! I loved the colors the ,the graduation cap on top and the elegant frames you have used inside !

  3. Seriously it's AWESOME!! Looks like a graduation gift totally. I loved how you made that cap, addition of a paper roll,wow! genius! You know explosion box is on my 'to-do' list since long and I visit your blog so many times for ideas, but end up getting distracted by CAS challenges :P.

  4. Sujana this is so creative...awesome idea to make the graduation cap

  5. Wow..Amazing Sujana..Love the flower pot.. Very nice..
