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.

 Recipe:  HCDP1-270 Classic Rose Paper Collection, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Cling Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-783 Border Essential Die, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, Bazzill CS-purple, green & black, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Whisper, New England Ivy, Gypsy, Sorbet & Blush, Distress Ink-Stormy Sky, Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter, Nuvo-Glitter Accents Fresh Snowfall & Crystal Drops Ivory Seashell, Pearls.
