Today’s creation: the “exploding box.” After seeing my Unfolding Your Life Vision collage books and my collaged dream boxes, a lady launcher made me one of these surprising structures since she knew I would appreciate it. I love how the box is simple yet complex. And that it unfolds!
I tried to follow a pattern that I found online. However, I don’t do so well with measurements and instructions, so I ended up just reverse engineering it from the one I already had.
I haven’t figured out yet how I want to decorate the inside pages. I might play with seasons, directions, elements and/or stages of my life. I’ll save that for another AEDM post! What fun!
Speaking of fun, I had my friends over for book club this afternoon. We dined outside in the warm sun and chatted a bit about Jodi Picoult’s page-turner My Sister’s Keeper, but mostly we just gabbed. I love the excuse to get together and catch up.
P.S. – Some of you have asked for instructions to make an exploding box. I found another link that looks like it makes more sense than the one I tried to use, so check out these directions.
P.P.S – Here’s a link to my finished Year-in-Review exploding box.
