Video; Episode 8- Mother's Day Explosion Box


MOTHER'S DAY GIFT & KEEPSAKE

This is a fun gift (I made for my Mom still stranded in the UK) to make.  And depending how you like to embellish it could take a bit to complete.  I used Graphically Speaking and Sweet Treats cartridges for this gift box.  But mostly family photo's. This video was big enough to make 2, but I cut it back for one.  Let me know how you like this Epic gift and maybe if you'll make one too? 






Here's the LINK for this tutorial I found.  I hope this helps along with the video.  If you make one, post a link or photo to my CNS Facebook fan page!  We'd love to see your crafty project!

  21. This was as awesome a project as they come!! LOVED it... saw your video last night and decided, at the last minute of course, to make one for my mom for mother's day. She absolutely LOVED it.... and I didn't even go all out since it was an experiment. Thanks sooooo much for this video. So glad I stumbled on it. Natalie (who still can't figure out how to follow or post anything :( )
