I've never made an exploding box before so that was my little project at the weekend and again I went for a christmas theme. The papers are some of last years Raspberry Road Designs 'Christmas collection' and the sentiment is one of the LOTV christmas grungy messages. I used Memory Box Lindeman Snowflake die with some pearls from my stash and the poinsettia is Tattered Lace Christmas Florals with the foliage die from Memory Box Fabulous Phlox. The foliage was cut from silver mirricard and I experimented by using some glossy photo card for the flower which I coloured with Promarkers and fastened with a tiny brad. I couldn't decide what to do in the centre but after a rummage I found this old cake decoration of a skating Santa which I thought worked quite well and I used the centre die of Marianne Creatables LR0180 for his 'skating rink'. Finally I added a snowflake charm from my stash.
