    New Artwork: An Exploding Explore Box by Nichola Battilana!

    So clever that Nichola! She made this pretty Double Explosion Box (which is also in the July kit, and Nichola used papers and charms from that kit, too)… but instead of the whole box “exploding” when the lid is removed, she has loosly tied together the inside box with twine, so there’s a second box inside the first!

    From Nichola’s blog post:

    I’ve used a bunch of pieces from the Wanderlust Printed Chipboard which I kinda love.

    Quick tip: cut your paper just slightly smaller than the sides and you wont have to worry about bends and folds at the corners. I painted my box first, then applied squares of Wanderlust Souvenir Scrapbook Paper. It made things soooo much easier.

    Open the box and inside there’s another, tied with twine and embellished with snips from the
    Vintage Travel Tags & Hardware Collage Sheet.

    Remove that wee box and inside a compass so that you’ll never be lost on your wandering adventures.

    Perfect! Beside these photos of Nichola’s project, there’s another photo down in the Giveaway section, where you can enter to win lots of supplies from Nichola’s supply list! And be sure to visit Nichola’s blog for more photos and tips (and a surprise second exploding box)!
