EIC43-Explosion box tutorial!

Time for another Etsy Inspired challenge! This week's shop is whichgoose. They offer a variety of vintage items and vintage looking hair accesories.
This week I have made an explosion box. You can find a tutorial on how to make this cute little box HERE. This tutorial is by the fabulous Beate Johns for SCS. Easy peasy with a lot of WOW factor! My box base is kiwi kiss, and the top is DSP from SU. I made the cute little paper flowers after seeing a tutorial on my friend Abi's blog. Go check her tutorial out!

I included a votive candle that is kiwi kiss colored and added a paper flower on the top. A sweet little hostess gift! You can also just leave it empty with a sentiment stamped on the bottom.
