One of the items completed this week (which is a little bit of a fib because it'll get a few more finishing touches still) is this exploding carousel box from alphastamps.com. Laura over at Artfully Musing created a Valentine masterpiece with the same box and even has a tutorial.
When the lid is lifted, the sides fall open and reveal another compartment inside.
(I really like that this lid comes off completely.)
There's gorgeous paper flowers and a little house in there.
Really, the possibilities with this box are endless...
... but I am partial to butterflies and moss ;)
Gardenias - Mixed Pink: Absolutely scrummy. So good it's the type of thing you're tempted to hoard and save.
Olde Curiosity Shoppe Butterfly Specifics Scrapbook Paper I adore this paper and use those lovely butterflies at every opportunity.
I love how when it "explodes" here is so much depth and so much to explore. It's like a puzzle inside a puzzle -- or a prize in the box of cracker jack!ReplyDelete
OHHH Nichola, This is magical!! As if opening the box releases the butterflies to find a wee little village of fairies. Just beautiful. I love this piece.ReplyDelete
