Explosion Boxes! Sooo much fun!!

Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to share some FUN projects that I made for Mothers Day, late I know, but they're here now! Nicole over at Canadian Nickel Scrap'n did a video tutorial on how to make these fun explosion boxes. Her post can be viewed by clicking the link above in blue. Following her post she also shares a link to written instructions on how to make an explosion box. Thanks Nicole!! 

So I decided to make these for my mom and my soon to be mother in law for Mothers Day, they loved them! Hope you do too!

The box above is for my fiances mom. She has 3 boys, so I made each "layer" about each of her sons.

This one was for my mom. No rhyme or reason to the order for hers, I just put lots of pictures of our family!

As always feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think!

  1. OH WOW Sara Kate, you did a great job on these. Two is a lot of work! And so smart to do a layer for each son. Did you post it on my FB Page yet? Also, there's a Linky under the video post. There's still a lot of people checking it out! I can't believe how popular it is! Wait until you see what I have instore for Fathers Day...Mwahahahaaaaa!

  2. Thanks Nicole! I was a lot of work, especially because I did them in a day and half once finals were over! I will go post them on your blog and FB page! Oooo I can't wait to see the Fathers Day project. Any chance it will be up soon? I get married June 12 so I would have to do it early! Thanks again for the awesome ideas!
