I'm sharing a fun exploding box with a twist!!  I found the tutorial over on the Facebook group Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations.  Tamra and her DT have a never ending cycle of tutorials, there is something for everyone!!!!  Now to just find more hours in a day to do them all!

I used the Classic Rose Paper Collection for my box.

The twist to this exploding box is that it hides little drawers when you remove the lid!!  There isn't much room for 3D items, but glitter works great for adding some wow.  I added some around the front of the drawer.

Here's what it looks like with the box open.

The Classic Rose Paper Collection has some great tags, borders, journaling cards etc.  I used a couple borders and made a tuck spot for a couple of journaling cards.

I used more of the smaller pieces from the collection to decorate the inside of my drawers.  What a cute surprise when you open it!!


I used the Classic Rose Cling Stamp and matching Die for my flowers.  The big rose I stamped on some patterned paper in the collection, the smaller roses I stamped on white cardstock.  I used my Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to shape them.

I also used my favorite die Arianna Lace to mat my rose with.  

 
 I added Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter to add some bling to my flowers, who doesn't love glitter!?!

In the lid I hid another tuck spot!  Okay, I confess, I cut my paper too short and didn't have enough of the dark purple to cut another, so I cut a triangular piece to add as a pocket!

These tags come with the Classic Rose Collection!
 
 I used the Border Essentials Die to add a pretty edge to my lid.

And I didn't forget to decorate the bottom, it makes a perfect spot to leave a little personal note.

Oh wow, what a fancy box. I love how you added the various papers to it to make it so special and different. Just lovely.

THAT IS A GREAT IDEA....YES! I'm gonna use it too! Thanks for the inspiration. I bought the vintage floret when it first came out. But couldn't afford to get the matching die. Boy do i wish i had...know anyone not wanting theirs anymore?

While I probably would avoid a project this complicated, I can really appreciate all the time and effort that went into this unique creation. Love your floral display!

Any chance of getting the name of the designer of the tutorial? I would love to have it.

What a great project to show off a variety of papers. And an unexpected way to gift a few smaller items (I'm thinking maybe different teabags in each drawer for my mom or some makeup for my nieces).
