What a beautiful box! I like how you've made a peep hole in one of the sides so that the sweet bunny can be seen even when the box is closed. And I LOVE the big flower you've made for the lid. Gorgeous!

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Pat! Hope you are staying warm these days. Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. Just playing catch-up on my blogs yesterday and today. So glad I saved your blog, and did not use my bleary eyes to see. LOL What a gorgeous project! Your grandchildren must treasure ever little thing you make for them. I still have some of my grandma's things she made. This little explosion box is adorable. I have not seen anyone make one like this before, with the peek hole, and gorgeous soft colors. The bunny is made adorable, of course, with your soft sweet shading to make it match the pretty papers. Love all the dies. Now I want to make one, too. Incredibly charming! hugs, de
