Grrrr! After trying for half an hour to get these pictures in the right order and lined up, I've decided to settle for the fact that they're on here at all! :-)
This is my first ever exploding box and I'm soooo chuffed with it! I followed a tutorial on You tube by Crafty Alice: www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbCr4hsgPe8 It's taken me daaaays to make but I've loved it :-)
The lid of the large box has Henbury Lane butterflies on it and then around the outside are some flowers I got for my birthday, a tag that I've made with a list of wishes on it that I have for the special couple, some heart die-cuts I've had for ages and a little wedding topper I picked up at a car boot sale! The papers are all from the Dovecraft Wedding collection. The inside has a freebie image of Cuthbert and Kiki's Wedding from Pollycraft that I've coloured with promarkers and some computer generated sentiments cut with my nesties. The brads are from the Papermania capsule collection and the gems and flowers are from my stash.
The mini box has ribbon and flowers from my stash around the outside, while the inside has a bunch of mini flowers I got for my birthday (I usually end up chopping the stalks off!), a freebie butterfly from a magazine (I forget which one!) a heart shaped brad with a ribbon threaded through it and a flower I made using small scallops cut with my nesties and secured with a brad. All the card is core'dinations. I'm going to fill the mini box with confetti when I give it.
Phew! I think that's everything! Are you still with me??? :-)
I'm entering it into three challenges:
Sir Stampalot: Bring on the Bling
Sarah Hurley: Animals
Crafty Catz: Animals
Hope you like it (and I haven't bored you too much!)
Love 'n' hugs,
