Exploding box - L.Denison style :)

I decided to make an exploding box a la Laura Denison :) This is heavily based on her idea, with the tags being different on mine, and the proportions slightly different too - but it's basically her idea :)
I used La Belle paper, with a little MME too.

I'm still not happy with the lid of the box - I think it looks like a toilet roll holder from the 70's... but I'm working on a new one. I finished the box when I attended a craft evening at my local craft shop - lovely time me and my friend Lou had there.

I have just 36 tags in my box - and 8 extra journalling spaces made from the flaps that cover the outer flaps of the box. Four of these tags slip in sideways in a space made from the outer flaps - quite a little ingenius idea from Laura there :)

Some of my tags/photo mats I made into little opening covers - some with acetate covers that I inked with stazon. All the edging was done woth a Martha Stewarts corner punch.
