Explosion Box and a birthday gift

Hi Friendz....

Another year coming to an end and excited for the new year.. This year has been one of the bestest in my life for I finally settled down with someone whom I love .. and is my soulmate :)
This year also brought back  my tempting habit of keeping off waste and junk material to make something useful out of it. I had ample time and I started crafting again, it all started with one quilled post by my friend and I was excited to see how was it done when I brought a quilling tool from the market and tried on normal paper first to see what was it all about.. and got hooked in the way...
Within no time, I was back to blogging and met lots of fellow crafter's whom I admire and get inspiration from ..

I love trying out different things, and somehow during the process I found and explosion box.. I loved it to the core and made one for my SIL for her birthday.. it was widely appreciated... I now have made another for my nephew.. a belated gift though.. but still .. have a look :)

 Here the explosion box... I tried not to be tooo girly here... :)

and Pop it opens up to reveal a bunny shaped cake..

Front view of the bunny cake :)

I added a little banner here and I loved it when it came out nicely.. I never thought scraps could make smthing look this good ;) *wink wink* .. I'm saving all my scraps now ... tadaaaa...

Here's a panel when I left a small rectangle to fill up with my nephew's picture... :) and added a small sentiment.. 'our rising star '

No birthday party is complete without balloons... and here  they are... :_

A secret pocket to hide in some good bundle of wishes...

This is the complete view of the card from the top :)

and my favorite part... close up of the bunny cake... I'm in love with it... :)

I hope u all liked my new explosion box.. for I know... my nephew's gonna love it :)
