Fairy Acetate Exploding Box

I'm here today to share with you a project inspired by a fantastic creation I found via Pinterest..  --   It is a stunning Acetate Exploding box with a Christmas theme.. 

Well as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to have a go!! I'm not quite into the Christmas themed projects just yet myself (soon though I'm sure). So I decided to make this creation FOR ME! I pulled out my Fairy papers and had a blast! 

The papers are from an old Kaiser collection.. (I know there is a brand spanking new Fairy collection coming out in a couple of weeks from Kaiser, I'm so ridiculously excited!!!!! lol..) 

Anyway, I went into my room and looked through my own collection of hundreds of Fairies to find just the right one to fit and suit this box.. I love this September Fairy (my birthday is mid-September) and it works perfectly for this project.. 

Unlike normal Exploding boxes, I have not layered the outer panels.. Instead the sides are only single sheeted..  Due to the Acetate being clear, I'm able to position the Fairy and to create a little background for her to sit in front of.. 
This was my very first Exploding box style card that I had made and I had so much fun with it!! I have since made a special one for Hunter that will be a part of my upcoming Memory Maze DT post release.. So make sure you check back for that! :) 


I would love for you to join me over on my facebook crafting page..
It is definitely the best place to keep updated with my creations, mostly in real time..
