Explosion box - house shape


I am super excited to share this with you. It was my first attempt (as usual ;) ) and now I'm loving it. It took much more time than a normal explosion box. 

As this was my first overseas project, i wanted to make it totally different than i usually make. I got idea of this shape from one pinner and i tried to pin afterwards but now i am not getting her. :( so it was all in my mind. I am not good at triagnle measurements and i found no tutorial for that so it was all i need to do my own so it took a much longer time than it should take. But in the end, final product matters. So here it is,

Isn't is beautiful? It's made by me so ofcourse i would love it. ;) whole box has been made from DCWV be mine stack. It has such a beautiful embossed papers which u can see in video. Being a house, I have used a key and a cage and eiffel tower charms. Rooftop has been bordered with a lace. One side has flowers and I Love You as a house name. ;) and other side totally with big flower lace. 

And now opposite side of this:

I am super duper excited for inside, especially centre of the box. :)

All the layers are not possible to show here so do watch video to see how it goes. 

Closeups of centre:

Doesn't it look like they are standing live there? I fussy cut the photos and adhered them. I don't know from how did this came in my kind but yeah, it's not at all an idea from somewhere. It is only my mind. ;)

At last, here is the video of box to see how it goes. Its been taken without photos except centre ones. 

Thanks for watching this space,

Chirali. :)
