Explosion Box with a Twist

Well I did it!  I finally made an explosion box.  I've been wanting to attempt one of these since I first discovered them mid last year.  I made this one with a push from Stampin' Dymonz on her blog,  She is doing 52 weeks of creations, and this was the project for week 3

Here's my take on it.  I can't take credit for the "twist".  After a day of blog hopping and web surfing, I found myself at  Her post on her Thanksgiving mini album is what gave me the inspiration to do the explosion box a little differently.

The "Exploded" View

This view shows how the tags are not attached to the sides of the box.  This gives extra room for journaling, pictures, or whatever, on the sides.
I will edit this post tomorrow (hopefully!) with the details on making this box.

Thanks for visiting!

  2. Thank you ladies for your comments. Scraplift away!

  3. I absolutely LOVE it! There are so many things that you can do with these explosion boxes. I worked on one at my crop on Sunday and it is one with a twist also. I should be posting it on my blog tonight. Come on by and check it out! Thanks for the shout out in your post and for taking up my challenge to create your own explosion box!

  4. I love Expoleding Boxes, and the twist is great. I have to try this version with the fold in sides.
