Anniversary Exploding Box


I have used Crafters Companion Exploding box dies to make this creation. I die cut the box sides in white card. I drew on the pink metallic cut using the inside of the die, drawing on the inside allowed slightly smaller panels so it left a border like you do when you matt and layer your projects. I added the die cuts. I printed personalised sentiments which I cut with a die from a nesting set from The Works. I added the teddy with hot glue. I bought the teddy from a local floristry supplies.
