Explosion box



Finally done with my first explosion box for a birthday gift.... 
I've added flowers ,lots of butterflies ,waste pieces of fabric here and there and I've done a recycling part too ...


To the cover of the explosion box I've added flowers.. The grey with white rose is made out of fabric and the green ones beside the flower are made out of tissue cloth...




The borders of  each opening are decorated with fabric... And I pulled out certain pieces of thread as I liked the look of it then.. 


The red rose behind the bird cutting in one of the opening( In the above pic the opening is in the top ) is  hand cut fabric... The red leaves in one of the border (In the above pic opening is in the bottom )behind the punched daisy is also hand cut fabric .


Now coming to the part of recycling ... were u able to guess what I have used to make the cake... Its the used thread roll... I had collected pieces of  it from the tailor and thus turned it into cake.. Lovely na !!!
