Exploding Box




This is the first time i have ever made an exploding box, really enjoyed making it to :) It was for my very dear friend Theresa who was 50 this August, she was so not looking forward to her birthday. I managed to get some photos off her sister Margi (thanks for your help) i am hoping Theresa won't be popping on my blog as she will go mad that i am sharing all these photos of her, lol. I have used a scrap booking set of papers i got from QVC some time ago and still haven't used!! I hope you likey??
Sorry i have not been adding to my blog lately but have been busy doing some cards for Kim with the new Cuddlybuddly Christmas stamps, so hope to be able to share with you soon :) If you haven't had a look at Kim's new stamps and papers for Christmas pop along and have a look, you won't be disappointed.

what a fabulous gift for your friend! I must admit to never trying one of those boxes .. .. I'm sure it's not as complicated as it looks! And I am looking forward to seeing your CB cards, I have the robin stamps but still not inked them up! annie x
