For Grandma with love - an exploding box

It's the first time I made an exploding box, and definitely not the last time! It's such a fun making it. I've made it for my mom, and it's actually a mimi album, with 20 photos. The title on the lid says, in Hebrew: "For grandma, with love".

This is how the box looks when closed:

And this is what it looks once you lift the lid:

All the dp for the box itself are DCWV, and for the lid - Canson. And here are some more close-ups on the sides of the box:

This box goes for the challenge at Joans Gardens, which was:
1. make a box - check.
2. a flourish - embossed, on the top of the lid.
3. a butterfly - there're several of them.
4. make a flower - I sewed the blue flower on the lid from fabric and then topped it with a little Prima flower and a button.

And it goes for some more challenges:
city crafterpear tree designs; one stop craft; osaat (exploding box is new to me); ssic; 365 cards; simon says (punch, flowers, gems - on the red butterfly); the creative belli (p- patterned paper, punch); wee memories;

And here's a sneak peek to a new layour I've made, and I'll post it on next Friday, so please come back....:

Thank you for visiting my blog!

קופסא מתפוצצת שהכנתי כמתנה לאמא שלי. זו פעם ראשונה שאני מכינה כזאת קופסא, ובהחלט לא האחרונה. זה פשוט כיף להכין כאלו. יצא מיני אלבום, עם 20 תמונות בסה"כ. ההכנה פשוטה מאד, במיוחד שאת הקישוטים המעטים הוספתי רק על המכסה ועל דפנות הקופסא.

תודה על תשומת הלב!

Oh Libeeti, this is GORGEOUS. You should do a Tutorial on how to make this. I have always wanted to make one. I love the colors. I'm sure Grandma loved it.

את יודעת, קופסא מתפוצצת נמצאת תמיד ברשימת הTO DO שלי LOL כבר שנים, עכשיו כשאני רואה כמה יפה זה יצא לך, אולי גם אני אשב סוף סוף ואצור אחת לאבא שלי שכל הזמן מתלונן שאני לא שולחת מספיק תמונות :)
Love the way you created it ,
The decorations around the box are so pretty!
I think I might just make one myself now that I have seen your xxx
