EXPLOSION BOX

This time the challenge at MORNING CHAT is to make an EXPLOSION BOX. I cannot wait to see what everyone has done! Just link your project here and add ButternutSageDesigns to your post to submit your creation! We announce a new challenge every other MOnday right in the chat room!
Here is the box I made for a birthday surprise. It sort of pops open like the old fun toys in a tube that we used to have! The sides are done with multiple panels inside and out to make them heavy, allowing the box sides to drop more dramatically, causing the butterfies to FLY!!!!! The inside is a little unexpected in color too, with a feel of a fairy garden. It is awesome in real life. I also used Tin Foil as a layer to add some shine and Shimmer Paints to add glimmer to the butterflies. I am please with how it turned out and love the butterfly bow too! Enjoy and come play! ~Donna

Hey Donna....LOVE this box! What did you get to make the butterflies "fly"? You are always coming up with such wonderfully clever pieces!

This is beautiful. An explosion box has been on my to-do list for a very long time. Maybe this is the inspiration I need. TFS.

Love your box Donna. The butterflies are really creative and very special. I see shadows. Are some actually raised up and "flying?" What a beautiful box!

Beautiful Explosion Box Donna! The Butterflies with the embossed scrolls look like they've fluttered inside while the box was closed!

Thanks for your comment on my box Donna. I'm not sure how to modify or respond to them though. Carol
