So embarassing, I should not even post...

My first explosion boxes are REALLY, REALLY bad. They are so elementary, it looks like a 5 year old did them. UGH! I ran out of both time and ideas on these, but they were for my niece and nephew for their birthdays. She is 14, he is 17, and the good news is, since they have never seen one, they kept saying how awesome the boxes were. I used a couple of double sided cardstock sheets from Martha Stewart's birthday stack, and some SU! and Recollections accent papers. The numbers on the bottom are cut from Celebrations, and the inner stickers are all Recollections, and the pockets on the outer squares were where I put the money!  I had so many cards to do last weekend that I got really lazy and used stickers as I ran out of time. Anyway, thanks for visiting today!


  1. Oh my gosh, Kim you are so funny. I think they're great! They are bright, cheerful, and perfect for birthdays. I have yet to try these but I really want to!

    Don't be so hard on yourself, I think your boxes turned out great. I have yet to make one of these

  3. Kim, I always like to read the post before I see the picture of the project. I was laughing about what you wrote until I say your project. What are you talking about? Your boxes look great! Don't be so hard on yourself. Now I really don't want to post my crappy projects.LOL

  4. I think they are wonderful. You did a great job!! I love the papers you chose.


  5. The boxes were great! Very different, decorated perfectly, they were a hit!! We loved them.


  6. Hey Kim,
    I wanted to pop on over and wish you and your family a Happy Easter
