Birthday Explosion Boxes

2 Graphic 45, By the Sea and 1 Purple Explosion Boxes for birthday cards!  I have been working on these boxes for about 3 weeks now for 3 friends with birthdays in July.  Inside are pictures for the birthday girls and other fun things.

This opens for a birthday sentiment
Today is her birthday!
This flower for the top of this explosion box is fun to make but you need a compass to make this. The link to make this flower  is below.  This is a well explained tutorial.


Inside explosion box
Added flaps for more pictures and more embellishments.  Love making the little tote bag for the beach and can't forget the flip flops and beach ball!

The second explosion box with the Graphic 45 by the sea paper is for another friend who is a beach lover or beach bum as they are called!

Used some of my dies for embellishments and also made the tote bag for the center again with shells. Can't have a beach theme without seashells!

Purple lover
Love my new doily die from Tim Holtz.  It is very intricate but the die cuts so well that I didn't have any problems getting out those "little pieces"!  The paper is from Stampin up!

The center of this explosion box is a birthday cake.  I made it from cardstock with pearls and flowers on top.  I really loved how each one of these boxes came out!  Happy Birthday, dear friends!!
