Besties Explosion Box

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
Its a hot week here in Denver Colorado...
but crisp and cool here in my craftroom!
I have a little explosion box to share with you all today...
I have a friend getting ready to start an online craft store and she
has sent me some precut explosion boxes
and other goodies to create with!
Caution:::: Heavy Photos!!
This is a 4x4 explosion box
I used Teresa Collins DP's with a little The Paper Studio mixed in
Pink Trim and Feather from my local craft store
Black Prima Flower

Photo below is after the top is removed

In this photo I have created a gatefold panel
(see next photo below)

This is how the gatefold opens

This panel has a pull out journeling tag

Another pull out tag for a photo...
notice the cute heart lock
SCACD Die Cut Fountain

Below is another gatefold panel
There are 2 gatefold panels on this card box
The center of the box has a darling arrangement of Prima Flowers
and a cordinating flower made with the paper collection

For a more indepth look at this explosion box,

pop on over to my You Tube Channel and have a look.
