Exploding Box

I have been busy making an exploding box for a commission for the past couple of days.
Here's the lid, I used cuts from A Child's Year for all the external decoration. The letters are DCWV chipboard

I cut tiny figures of children playing to go all around the sides like a frieze..............






Here it is opened, the papers are K & Company




Just one of the tiny pages, I love doing these boxes, it's always a challenge to find embellishments tiny enough to look in scale


The cutting sizes for the boxes are on the blog - look under labels for tutorial for exploding box. I took the photos at night, so they are a bit rubbish, sorry about that, but you get the general idea. The box has been delivered, so I can't re-take them.

  7. What a stunning project Enfys, I so admire you having the patience for this (I wouldn't have!!)
    Actually, I'm useless at anything that needs measurements or sounds in the least technical, a bit of a disaster really lol!

  13. Oh how cute! You always create such wonderful things. I love the childs year cart. I think it'll be my next purchase. How is it that you get a cartridge you've been wanting for a long time. And you think, now I've got all I want. Then you see something else, and all of a sudden you need another cartridge? Poor Don... But I'm selling some of my cuttlebug and sizzix alphabets that I never use because of my cricut. So maybe he'll feel better about it! lol have a wonderful day!
