Have you ever made an explosion box? These are so fun to make! They take a bit of time but they are so worth it. (I'm going to apologize in advance for how long this post is).
This box has a disney theme and since disney is all about glamour and sparkle, what better medium to work with than CI Paint, with all its shimmer and shine!
For the top, I made some flowers and painted them with CI Paints 'Sunshine', 'Blush', 'AquaMarine', and 'Amethyst'. The butterflies were stamped and painted with the same paints. I wanted pastel colors so I mixed my main color with 'Blue Ice' and glazing medium.
I made some glimmer mist with CI Paint 'Gold' and 'Blue Ice',rubbing alcohol and water and then spritzed the entire box. I think this box is going to glow in the dark, LOL!
And then you take off the lid and TA-DA!
Did I mention how fun these are? Sometimes I think I'm still a kid!
There are pockets that hold tags for photos and journaling. They have buttons sewn on for pull tabs. The center has a castle and butterflies that are attached to acrylic strips which lets them flutter when the box is opened. More handmade flowers and glimmer mist. Each panel has a tri-fold card which closes by being tucked under the ladies skirts.
Hope you give this box a try and that you have as much fun as I did.
