Hey everyone! It’s time for another super-cool StampInsanity Challenge! This week, we need to alter or create either a box or a frame. I decided to make a box! An Expolsion Box! When I had my store one of my instructors there taught it all the time. It was a really popular and fun class. But guess what? I had never made one myself before, until now! So take a look-see at my first stab at it!
Hmmm, that’s an simple little box, right? Some cool, stripey paper, a Glimmer Misted top… what’s so cool about that???
BOOM! It explodes!!! It opens up to a full 12x12 sheet where you could add photos, ephemera, journaling, etc. But look who I have popping out! Pierette! Surprise!!!
I stood her up along with one of Beth’s fab sentiments (both are from the Les Coquettes collection- available ONLY at Stamps Happen…click on the link in my sidebar!!!). Her colors were chosen by my clever little boy, once again. He loves helping Mommy with her projects! ;}I thought about adding more to the center, but I thought that there was already a lot going on with all of the crazy patterns I used. Please click on any of the images to see it bigger!
Here’s a close up of the box top. I’m sorry that my photos are a bit dark. I have horrid lighting in my craft room for taking photos. Why don’t Ott lights work well with cameras??? And I didn’t have this done in time before the sun disappeared behind the clouds. I used 3 colors of Glimmer Mist, along with one of Tattered Angel’s fabulous Glimmer Screens.
I secured the sides of the box together with staples. Then I added a few dabs of Stickles for some extra zing.
Now it’s your turn! Go and funk up your own box or frame for a chance to win some ultra cool digis from StampInsanity! Visit the blog for all the deets. And please make sure you check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz projects! They will rock you!!!
