My project!! (pic heavy) *ETA* Completed pictures

Today I started a exploding box, oh my gosh its so easy to do and alot of fun. I still need to add pictures and stuff but here's what I have done so far.
Here's the box with the lid

Here's the top of the lid

When you take the lid off

The outside of the box and the bottom

Inbetween the flaps


Here's the link to the instructions for the box

If you made it this far, thanks for looking!!!

ETA- Next time I will make sure my cardstock is color on both sides, lol.

It prob took be about a hour and a half to do, only because I don't have a corner punch so I had to use a template and my circle cutter and then go back and trim up, then I inked everything, lol. But I plan on getting a corner punch here soon cause I'm going to make more, I think it would make a great gift to give.

Christy, that looks great!! I can't believe it only took you 90 minutes to make it. I might have to try it (when I get a little more caught up on my layouts :lol:)
