Hook on to the Explosion Boxes.. this time it's a carousel one !!!

Hi Crafty People..

I'm certainly hooked on to making Explosion Boxes.. they are sooper dooper fun to make and there is such a lot of craziness in making them, a part of this craziness comes from the fact that, it's fun to watch the recipients reactions (of course, if you personally give it to them).. they are always amazing :)

This time around, I experimented by Making a carousel explosion box since I wanted to make one of each shape and size.

Here is what I made !!!
A Carousel Shaped Explosion Box with a Love is.. Card..
Isnt it cute.. I even have a Love is.. flag at the top :)

Here's what the box looks like when opened. Also seen here is the Card.. it's a simple card .. yet is very elegant to look at :)

A complete view of the explosion box.
It has places for 6 TAGS where wordings can be placed. as well as 6 passport size pics can be attached as shown on one flag (b/w this is my brother's pic when he was a kid and dunno why .. but I have always loved this one.. for he looks sooo sweet in this pic... which he is not, so good memory of him being sweet ;) )

Here's the Card that I made along, I had an Easel Card in mind, but somehow I was not very much into that idea and since my Box was all about Love.. I wanted my Card to be on the same theme as well.. and moreover I wanted to try out something different this time.. So .. tada... here's what I made :) and I'm in love with this card... it's sooo soo so sooo so adorable :)

A closer look at the flower in the middle....

I hope you all liked my preparation this time... coz I'm loving it..
and yes this is a closeup of the flower I made for the center :)
