Fall Explosion Box ( LOTS of pics).



Hello there,
I made this little explosion box that is exploding with detail. The top has a "Fall" paper corner that I cut with the Cricut and used it as a title. I also used the Cuttlebug and only one folder throughout to keep the same leaf motif in the box. The orange and gold flowers are my own creation. The individual layers are all stamped differently, glimmered and the brads are metal and felt. I also added a green ribbon to the border of the Fall die, and a cream ribbon to the border of the box. I used several techniques and was really challenged by the small size, but I hope you enjoy it as I have!

This is the top of the explosion box.
This is the side profile.
This is what you see when you open it.
This tag has an origami flower attached to it and I stamped and colored it.
This is the back-side of the same tag. Stamps are Close to My Heart.
I embossed the paper with the Cuttlebug and stamped the tag, colored it and added  the flower and button.
This is the tag outside of the pocket.
I used several stamps and freehand doodling for a journaling spot.
Another pocket with a felt flower embellishment.
The "lace" border here is actually a stamp that I fussy-cut and added to the border of this tag. The flower is also stamped and hand painted. 
Here's the inside with a small journaling spot. 
I stamped other images and popped them off the page to add interest.
This bird is from the Cricut, I hand cut the paper behind it to make it into a sleeve. I also embossed and inked the paper to match.
The little owl is in a "window". He is popped against the background.
This tag I stamped and embossed, and repeated the flower image in different colors,  and popped them atop the ribbon. Then I finished it with hand-stitching around the border.
It also has a journaling spot.
It fits nicely in the embossed pocket.
I used another bird image and repeated the technique on the opposing page.
This is a cute little slider I made with my Cricut, stamped and inked to match the paper.
