Engagement exploding box

I had made the exploding using the instructions in my tutorial. I made this box with only two layers so the centre is big enough for the ring box. I matt and layered the first layers panels with pink then white card. I added various love die cuts on the inside of first layer and outside of second layer. I printed sentiments and die cut them with a die from a nesting set from The Works and attached them to each panel of the top layer. I have made a small box, I folded tissue paper for the top. I made a ring by die cutting with a Marianne die and adding a flat backed gem. I tied ribbon to the ring and wrapped it around the tissue so the ring stands up. I decorated the box with lace and ribbon. I used the same die cuts on the four sides of the outside, cut using a die from The Works. I decorated the lid with the same lace and ribbon as on the ring box and added the heart die cuts, I cut the hearts with dies from a Sizzix nesting set and added the sentiment.

I completed my box with various flat backed embellishments.
