Photo Explosion Box





So, this has been a project I've been doing over the past week or so... a bit more time consuming than expected to get all the pics resized in Photoshop, than I had originally expected. I had planned to use some designed paper, but when working with such a small area, I decided in the end to only use a couple layers of card stock to mat the picture. However, I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. It's my first attempt at a Photo Explosion Box. I made this one for my friends that just had a little baby girl 4 weeks ago. The pics I included are all of them in her first 2 weeks. Some of the most precious moments. :)

I'm a little unhappy with the fact that when I added the pics to the outside of the box, I forgot that the cover would cover up the tops of them! Oops, oh well, I'm sure Craig and Tammy won't hold it against me! lol :) Tammy likes crafty things, she just doesn't do any crafts herself, so I think she'll appreciate my effort. This is their first child, so I wanted to do something special for them so they could have a keepsake for those first pictures.

Well, I have to go to bed, it's nearly 1 AM and I have an early morning planned.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this Julie. I am going to try one of these one of these days. I've only seen them with cards so far. This is a wonderful idea!!

I really need to try this too but it does look like a lot of work but would be so great in the end.
