Boxes Continue

Waaaaaay back in 2014 I took Misty Mawn's Full Circle class
and fell in love with the Exploding Box!

(Edited on Feb 5 2016.... just so you know.... you can google exploding box and see lots of tutorials and options. They've been around a long time!)

I've made a few and some I've sent to the QB5 Group on their birthdays in 2015.

This box was mailed to Carole in New Zealand.
The thing is that you can mail these flat ...
which is a big deal really! 

 I added some fabric to Carole's since she's the quilter in our group........ our group is "kind of defunct" but we still email and talk on the phone and message each other!

The box below was mailed to Nathalie.......... they all have some bits collaged in them that would remind us all of one another..... from prior swaps, etc.

Now we move on to Patty's box...

They all had an old public library card from the great stash Nathalie once had and shared!

....... Patty has a "thing" for swans.

If I mixed up any of the pictures....... hopefully they will forgive me.

If you want to see Margaret's box...... click HERE!

If you want to see MY box....... it's right HERE!

I have to tell you these boxes are a bit time consuming and I started the last three at the same time.
Didn't want to post pictures of these last three until they all had their birthdays! It gave me time with two of them having late November and an early December birthday! 

Happy New Year!!!

It's Class Time!

Misty Mawn is starting a new class in mid February!
 If you remember, she did Full Circle in 2014 and I loved it. 
I've done several posts showing the Exploding Box and the Gesso Book from it.
 (I think you can search my blog for Misty Mawn Class and find them.) 
 Anyway....... the rate for the new class goes up next week, so you should look into this.
 I'm taking it, along with some of my friends! Don't get left out!
