Love Explosion Box


Today I'm sharing an explosion box made on order for a wedding anniversary :)

I've used the Golden Love paper pack from Nakshathra Designz. The flowers on the lid were actually white, which I colored using Candied Apple distress ink. The chipboard is from Itsy Bitsy, gessoed and colored using Gold acrylic paint, along with some pearls. I've punched small red hearts and added randomly. The lid also has a red ribbon running on the sides.

The exploding box has 3 layers with pockets for sentiments, photos and tags. The center is another box to hold a gift, with a stacked heart on the lid.

I've kept the embellishments to a minimum here. There are 4 medium scalloped circle tags that hold pictures, 4 small scalloped circle tags for the sentiments. Also, I've used the sentiments from the love themed paper pack as inserts for one of the pocket layers.
