I've always been fascinated with the explosion boxes that I have seen on various blogs and after an evening's lesson, I decided to make one for my mom for her birthday. The paper I used was from Bo Bunny, the Welcome Home 6 x 6 pad. After the initial part of putting the box together, the pictures I added made the box her life history and a very special birthday gift. Thanks for looking and I look forward to reading your comments.
