Exploding Box Album

This is the first time I have made an exploding box. I had a very clear picture in my head of how it was going to look, but unfortunately, I made the top last, and I didn't realize that it was going to cover up half of the sides. I had pictured it as having the toile design on top, and being able to see the same design on all four sides.

I didn't get too fancy with the inside panels, I just used the Spellbinders labels one to make plain panels to either add photos or comments inside the box. Since I have the box for sale in my shop, I decided it would be easier for whoever bought it to customize it themselves this way. I also used labels one on the outside.

The box is made of textured linen card stock and toile background paper. I added a rolled rose which I made by using a scalloped circle nestability cut into a spiral. The border around the top is from a Marianne Creatable. I didn't have any ribbon of the right width in a matching color to weave it through the border, so I glued a wider one under the border so it shows through the slots. I then added Queen & Co. pearls.
