This is my entry in Donna's "It's A Surprise!" challenge.
Donna shared on her blog a video for guidance, which I highly recommend viewing. The artist who created this design, Paloma, is a crafty genius! You can watch her video with cutting guide on how to make this box by clicking here. Her fabulous blog can be found by clicking here.
What made Donna's exploding box different to me were the addition of hearts at the corners! That was so pretty and unexpected! I hand-cut the corners after seeing Donna's clever method for cutting hers! The heart-shaped corners are really what I loved about this! Click here to check it out!
To make the paper rose in the center of my box, I used one of my favorite tutorials by Kathy Orta! You can check it out by clicking here. In her video, she cuts her base shapes from George at 2-1/2". For this box, I cut them at 4".
I topped the box with a paper bow cut from Cricut Artist at 2-1/2".
Thank you for checking out my blog post! I had such a fun time making this project!
