Birthday Exploding Box

This is my Guest Designer post for the Birthday challenge over at scrapping4fun

I have made an exploding box using the dimensions that are on the tutorial page of my blog.

I have made the lid slightly deeper because the unicorn is slightly taller than the box sides.

I have matt and layered all the panels with turquoise glitter card and then white embossed card. I used a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I have die cut various sentiments to add to the panels on the biggest layer of my box. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut them with dies from a nesting set from The Works and Presscut.  I added the unicorn to the centre of the box. This unicorn is a Christmas tree decoration. Tree decorations are a perfect size for these boxes.

The best and cheapest selection of tree decorations are usually available from The Range.
I always try to look for some that can be used for other occasions so I can use them through the year.
