Second Day of the Sixth Week of the School Summer Holidays - Exploding Box

As yesterday was a bank holiday there was no craft time for us as we were out most of the day. But today was different. Today I showed Lara how to make an Exploding Box. I'm sure most of my blog readers will be very familiar with Exploding Boxes but for the uninitiated step by step instructions can be found here.

I printed Lara some mini wallet size photos of our recent holiday in Devon, helped her with the measuring and cutting of the cardstock (it's important to get that bit right) and between us we came up with some suitable titles for the photos which we printed onto paper and then I left her to assemble the box and add the photos and embelishments.

She really enjoyed making the box and sticking all the photos and buttons, etc onto it.

She made good use of a huge bag of themed shaped buttons I've had ever since I started scrapbooking.
