Explosion Boxes

A friend at work has asked me to make 3 boxes for her two wedding and one 30th birthday, my mum also wants one for my Aunty's 50th wedding anniversary.
Thought I had better make a start today!!
I had forgotten how long they take to make this one has taken me 4 hours because it is so long since I made one

This is the outside of the box

This is the inside

And these are the layers you can't see in the previous photos


Thanks for looking Sue :o)

It may have taken you four hours, but I have to say that it is one of the best I have seen, it looks so crisp and clean, very professional almost like it has been precision cut.
I absolutley love it.
