For our grandson’s graduation gift I made this explosion box. I obtained the instructions for the box from the Glitter Adventure blog. For the top I cut the sides so it would look more like graduation cap. I had a great time making this box making sure not to over embellish since it was for our grandson. The box was also suppose to hold what every graduate going to college is hoping for…a check. I made a button from Cherry Cobbler card stock and covered it with Crystal Effect and let it dry overnight. I then took wire to make the holder for the envelope. I used a Sharpie marker to wrap the wire around it to make the loops. All the sentiments were printed from My Digital Studio. I downloaded pictures from his FB page to include in the pockets of the second layer. The outer layer has pockets for other momentos or photos. I decorated each layer before assembling. Once all the layers were decorated I adhered the box. I photographed each layer below.
