40 Year Ruby Anniversary!

Happy Tuesday!

So today I want to share the beautiful explosion box I made for my In laws 40th Ruby Anniversary that they celebrated yesterday! It was the first time I ever made one of these and I love how it turned out :)  To make this did have some inspiration from one of my favorite crafty ladies, Thienly! Check out her family explosion box! Here is mine!


The file for the box come from here, and the rose file from here.


I have made many of these roses, but I absolutely love how this one turned out with the glitter glue on the edge of the petals.


This is what the box looks like when its all opened up! I printed the pictures in sepia to coordinate with the papers. Since it was a Ruby Anniversary I thought these papers from Recollections, Love Letters pad were perfect for the occasion. 


The file for the numbers comes from here. I was so excited to use my new epiphany shape studio tool that I recently picked up at Michaels! To create my Anniversary button, I simply just printed the wording out on white card stock and then used the Round 25 epoxy shape tool and punched it out! It was that easy! Love how that turned out!


I used 15 pictures to create this box. I'm sure if you wanted to, you could use so many more by putting them on the outside of the box as well. For this box I used recent pictures of our vacation this summer and included a few of the kids with the grandparents! The kids also wrote in the notes in the pockets pictured above. 



Well, hope you like this little explosion box! I sure enjoyed creating and gifting it!
Happy 40th Anniversary to my wonderful Inlaws!
