Magic Explosion Box

Magic Explosion box.View from the top.


Magic spills out the moment the lid is taken off the box.

Hi peeps!
I spent my Saturday night and Sunday morning very constructively.And I am beaming from ear to ear...why?Because I fulfilled my dream of making an Explosion Box with the help of  dear friend and blogger Karuna.She patiently answered my incessant questions and helped me with the dimensions too.After all she is an expert Explosion Box maker.Here and here is the link to her beautiful boxes.
We have a ladies club meet coming up and the theme is FUSION.I racked my tiny brains for two nights and guess when did the Light Bulb moment arrive...While Brushing my teeth.!!!...Maybe the action must have brushed some dust over my brains too.But then it is the bathroom where all my creative ideas start forming.That's the quietest and most clutter free spot in my house...not to forget most PEACEFUL too.
Okay enough digressing.....My logic behind the explosion box is that it is a fusion of a box and a card....and  a pretty deceptive card at that.It is impossible to judge from this Box's outer appearence...what lies inside.What do you think? Let me know.
Some detail shots of the fun elements.

Unity stamp. to add to the feminine touch

The tag with a tea pot...high tea right? winks!!!!

The invite with a silhouette

Another tag with heat embossing and some distressing.

A dress perched on a pedestal---More to woman power

handmade flower inspired by lKalindi( not half as nice as hers)

This is how it looks when the ribbon is opened.
