Exploading box

This week at CRAFT challenge we have a fun challenge for you


I'm really looking forward what you come up with

The winner this week gets a voucher from Toucan Scraps for Angelas online shop at Stitchy bear stamps

Some of the CRAFT Dt have made boxes from templates in Angelas shop, you can see their creations here

I made an exploading box for my friends little boy who was one for my DT project. I made the same friend one for her first son and she still has it on display 4 years later, so I know it's appreciated.

Most of the decorations is using shapes cut out from Nesties from coordinations card in turquoise and yellow. I've added some Doodlebug rub ons to the lid and a cute baby charm from Meiflower crafts

I've stamped some animal images for the sides which I've coloured in with Promarkers

I added some ribbon around the lid in blue and decorated the outside with some punched stars from adhesive glitter paper

Here's a close up of the lid

And here's the inside. I've added a photo to each square that were taken from birth up until a week before his first birthday. Again most of the shapes are cut from nesties and I've decorated it with silver punched stars as well as adding his date of birth with rub ons in the center. Isn't he such a cute baby, a couple of weeks again I became his proud Godmother :-)
I'd like to enter this into challenges at:
