I4U Project #8

Happy Tuesday!

Project #8 at Inkspirations4U was a take on an exploding box. If you have been following me for awhile, you know I love to create exploding boxes.

Here is my project closed:

The inside is a bit different than my typical exploding boxes. This project has some fun pop-ups and a stand-up gift card holder.

So, here it is open:

Can you see the snowflakes? They are Shimmer White card stock with bling in the middle. Everyone was doing butterflies and flowers, so I decided to be a rebel and look ahead to a Christmas gift. I still need to add pictures and I will give this to my brother Kevin.

Supplies used: Old Olive, Real Red, & Very Vanilla card stock, Dashing DSP (retired), Fireside Christmas & Punches Three stamp sets (both retired), and bling & gold glimmer brads. The popped-up poinsettias were spritzed with Champagne shimmer mist.

Thanks for stopping by.
