Christmas Exploding Box (pic heavy)

I finished my Exploding Box. I just used some random pics that were smaller in size, so nothing is of a certain event...more of just all of Christmas.

I had started gluing down pics before realizing I glued them the wrong way. :rolleyes: Instead of facing them all outwards on each "wing", I have them all facing the same direction. sigh. Oh well, I'm still pleased with how it came out! Sorry the pics are so bad, I was in a hurry this morning and didn't take the time to get them right or go outside. My son is teething and is quite cranky today.

Outside and top of box:

What it looks like when you first open it:

"right wing":

Top wing:

Left wing:

Here's the directions I followed, but some easier directions were posted a while back and I can't remember who posted them.

This is awesome Charys. I might try to create one! Of course it won't be as pretty as yours...but one can still try!

That is so cool!!! I like the pics being all in the same direction! Saves anyone who wants to look at it having to turn it all around!

That looks great!!! On the ones I've done I've always put the pictures where when you look at it you have to rotate to look at each wing, but I like the way you did it. I think that's the way I'll do it from now on, it looks alot better!! Great job, very pretty too, I love all the colors.

That turned out wonderfully. I really like the pics all going the same way. I would have never known it was a mistake if you hadn't mentioned it. It looks absolutely perfect.

That's gorgeous - and I really like the Christmas theme! I like the pictures all in one direction - makes it a lot easier to look at.

That looks really good- you have inspired me to try to make my own. And I also like all the pics facing the same way, it just seems like it would be easier to look at.
