My first explosion box :)
Sorry for all the pics, this one is hard to photograph!!!!
I keep seeing all of these really cute explosion box things. So, I figured what the heck why not try it out :) Over at Cooking With Cricut they have a sswirls and twirls challenge going on so I thought this would be a fun way to do that!
To get started I watched a YouTube video. That was definitely worth my time! I love how easy YouTube makes our life.
One thing I learned for next time. Use DOUBLE SIDED card stock for this project. Trust me. It would have saved me some money on Excederin. Oh well, live and learn.
Overall this was a fun project. It is for a friend that is TRYING to recover from surgery but it is taking longer than expected. Hopefully this will bring a little smile to her face.
Most of the paper I used for this is from the DCWV Garden Party Stack. I did cut a few images on my Cricut to add to this. I took butterflies from Paper Pups and Give a Hoot, the silhouettes are from A Child's year. Oh the swirls are from Accent Essentials. The stamp is from Stampin' Up. I don't do much with stamps so that is a skill I need to learn.
If you want some "how to" info let me know and I will show you where I learned.
