Exploding box for a Special Mother...

Good evening Everyone and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hope you've had a good Monday... Did you have a day off? I was in work, but it was a good, relatively quiet day for a change, so it was worth going - especially when taking into consideration that I can take a day off of my choice instead, at some point in the future! ;-)

I have recently been asked to make an explosion/exploding box for a friend's mother's birthday, and I have to say - as usual, I had a lot of fun making it! They're really not that difficult, and for someone who has never seen one, they are a bit of paper magic... Apparently, the mum not only loved it, but also said that I should make a business out of making & selling these, and become a millionaire... Wishful thinking, I would probably need to make these boxes non-stop for the rest of my life to reach the six zeroes! 

Anyhow, here's the box in A LOT of photos, and I will share a little secret with you - it will be my DT project for Divas by Design this week... But I won't tell you just yet what the challenge theme is going to be - you'll have to wait till Wednesday!

I am entering the box into the following challenges:
Love to create - Classy and Elegant
The East Wind - Spring
QKR Stampede - Anything goes
Moving along with the times - Make a box and decorate it
Cute Card Thursday - Girls girls girls

Hope you like the box, too! At the end of the day... "I wanna be a (b)millionaire... " ;-)
