Mother’s Day Explosion Box


My project today is the Mother's Day Explosion Box and we made it during the live stream last Friday.

I used the Subtles Collection of the Designer Series Paper Stacks with the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set ... along  with the Butterfly Thinlits (that are back in stock).

To make this box you'll need a piece of paper that measures 9 x 9 for the bottom and 5-1/16 x5-1/16 for the lid.

The Best Mother Ever greeting is from the And Many More Stamp Set.
