I finally did my exploding box. This was my first paper project in many years. I can totally see how this is addictive. Thank you, Charys, for the pattern.
Obviously, it still needs pics and embellishments.
Wow, I love it! The colors you chose are great and I love the flower on the outside. Are you giving it to your husband or father? He will love it I know! Did it make you want to start paper crafting more?

Oh wow! That turned out great! I love the colors.
That looks AWESOME! You did an amazing job with the colors! I really need to learn how to make one.

You did a wonderful job, the colors are great.
It took about 2-3 hours to make. It would have been faster if it wasn't my first one.
I loved doing it and would be totally adicted to paper scraping except that I know I don't have the money to buy all the stuff that my friend has and I don't want the mess. I've thought about it though. I think I'm going to get a few basics anyway though, like the paper cutter and corner rounder.
Oh, and my friend taught me that you can score using a metal ruler and back of a butter knife.
