Todays creation is a exploding box, Ive printed several of the topper sheets from Sarahs Cd "Playful Imps" and cut all the different sizes out to use on the sides of the leaves of this exploding box.
This was created with 3 @ 12"x 12" sheets of card, the first size of leaves is 4"x 4" and the second is 3.50"x 3.50" and the third is 3"x 3", these were created in a x shape and then folded up to create the leaves. The lid is a slightly larger 4.25"x 4.25"with 1" sides on it, the toppers were stuck to all the leaves front and back and then stacked up in the centre panel. (I can only say if you use for example the first layer a 12"x 12" piece of card and divide it into 9 equal 4"x 4"squares then remove the four corners and this will give you the right shape for the bottom layer, the other layers are created in the same way but just made in a smaller size.)
I then popped a medallion on the centre panel inside the box, and on the top of the lid Ive stuck another one thats been layered up and then before fixing the last one on Ive put a cut out of one of the bugs on a piece of Acetate and then stuck it under this layer so it bounces from the top. Ive also found some ladybugs on pegs that I took of and stuck one to the lid and one to the centre just to give it an extra flourish.
