Hello friends, Today am sharing with you all an explosion box made for my husband's birthday.

This is how the box looks when it is closed

When it is openend it explodes with a cake in the center. I followed the tutorial of Rina Meyer's from you tube to make this box.

I have used black cardstock for the base and recollections pattern papers.

My most favourite part is the center cake. I made that using chart paper and covered it using gift papers. I decorated the cake using spiral roses.

The explosion box has pockets on all the 4 sides. On one side of the explosion box I made an accordion fold pocket tags.

Another pocket contains a small book of precious moments. 

The other two pockets contain greetings and a letter. 

I decorated the lid of the box using flowers , pearls and crochet borders. 

My husband was happy and surprised after opening the box.  I too thoroughly enjoyed making the box and took care of every small details so that he likes my gift .
