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!!!

OH what FUN to see your fabulous exploding boxes Linda !!!
Each one is a treasure...
I keep mine close by so I can let it explode open every now and then and it delights me all over again ♥

These are just the neatest things! I suppose the only directions are in her class? Like I need another project.... Great job!

Your exploding box is fabulous! I made one with a gift inside of it... I even pulled out a music thingie from a card so when the sides fell down it played music :-)
