Valentine's Day Exploding Box

I made this for my darling hubby as a Valentine's Day present. DH isn't too keen on me showing

you much of his box mainly because there is a lot of personnal stuff in there so I can see his point of view!

 When I make an exploding box as a present I tend to put the persons initial on the lid. It's sort of my trade mark! & I always try & include a snow globe! I collect snow globes & so the plan is to swap the snow globe in DH's box with a little bundle of minature books at a later date!

I used Basic Grey cardstock for the box which is quite sturdy & unfortunately to many different scraps to mention. I cut the 'M' on the lid from chipboard & embossed with gold embossing powder.
Thank you DH for letting me blog your box. :o) XXX

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
