Sophie's Exploding Box

Morning everyone, hope you all had a wonderful weekend, the weather was amazing and so nice to have a couple of days sunshine and to sit in the garden and chillax with a slush puppy or two!

I'm sharing an Exploding Box with you today that Sophie wanted to make for her friend, Olivia's 13th birthday. I cut and measured the box itself, the lid and the paper layers but Sophie did all of the decorating herself.

Liv loves horses and this was the theme that Sophie went with...I think she's done a cracking job and I'm really proud of her for making such a beautiful and thoughtful gift.

I followed a tutorial that I found on can find the link here

Design Papers: Dovecraft (Garden Party)
Card Stock: 3 x A3 sheets of Papermill (Hammered Card Stock)
Embellishments: Various from my craft stash, The Range & Hobbycraft
Tools: Hougi Board
