Perfectly ArtisticGreatest Greetings Explosion Box Stampin Up UK Part One

Today I have a super project for you that you can personalise and embellish in your own way

Explosion boxes are super for those special occasions in life, such as a New Baby, or Baby Shower, Wedding Shower, or even made into a combined Memory Box & Album.

The internal size of the box ix a generous 10 cm wide and tall, so it is plenty large enough to contain a gift.

I have split the tutorial over two days as I am sure there are not many of you that have an hour to watch the video in one go.
