Happy Valentines.......

I made my first exploding box today. It's for a lovely young guy at work to give to his girlfriend on Valentines Day. It's filled with hand-made chocolates too.
I used cream coloured card to make the box then decorated it with scraps of paper and card. To finish it off I used some Tim Holtz paper which I embossed through my Cuttlebug then sanded it down to highlight the lettering.

Exploding boxes are fab aren't they? This one looks great. The first time I made one it was following a tutorial in a magazine but the measurements seemed to be wrong lol, but after a bit of fiddling around I made one, then another, and another, and another.....
