Explosion Box WIP

That moment when you realize it is FRIDAY! Yes, oh yes!

This weekend has exciting things in store and therefore today's post is going to be short and sweet and will showcase a work in progress. This is a WIP as it is going to be taught this weekend at an Altered Pages Event at Vintage Bliss, in Gilbert, AZ. I will be teaching a class on how to make an Explosion Box! 

I love this project because the possibilities are endless. It can be a totally fun greeting card. It could work as a vessel for gift giving or even a self contained mini scrap book. I am 100% for sure making these for just about every holiday...can you imagine Halloween?!?!

I will have a follow up post showing the finished project, pix of the gals having fun making it and all the instructions for you to make one of your own.

For now, I have attached a bunch of teaser pics of the beginning process. We will be adding many layers of embellishments as well as plenty of pockets for cute little tags that can include photo's or little stamped or hand written messages. We will be adding (to name just a few) collage images, crepe trim, seam binding,  ribbon, pearls, charms and just about anything else our pretty little hearts desire. All supplies are available at Altered Pages, of course.  

I hope you enjoyed the baby stages of what is sure to be a blast of a class this Saturday! I promise I will post the end result and all the fun creating it. Have a GREAT weekend...I know I will.   ~ Stephanie
