This is the fabulous and festive exploding box Christmas card Lesley gave me at card group.
Here's a closer look at the lid.
Here's the wonderful sight that greets you when you take the lid off!
Each of the four green pockets holds a tag.
Here is a close up of the sweet scene in the centre. A deer family, tree, chocolate snowman, snowballs - and just look at those itty bitty wrapped and decorated gifts!
Absolutely AMAZING isn't it?! Can you imagine the time, effort and tremendous patience that went into it? Guess what - Lesley made an exploding box for everyone at card group - that's TEN of these! TEN! * faints at the thought * I'd have lost the will to live halfway through the first one! Plus she's made more for family and friends!
I know Lesley looks at my blog - she's lovely, a real sweetheart and she'll be embarrassed that I've showcased her talent here! But I feel something as fabulous as this needs to be shared!
heartfelt thanks for this beautiful creation, I will treasure it always! We had guests at our home on Saturday night and they were all blown away by it! Ruth x
