New Baby exploding box

A personalised New Baby exploding box. There are some instructions under tutorials on my blog. 

I have used a Marianne die to create the shoes for the centre of the box. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut them to attach to the inside. I have added a die cut tag in the lid for the sender to write a message.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
