Hi everyone!

So this is Pam's Explosion box that I did for the most recent Renea Bouquet's swap. In the end I only used her gorgeous German glass glitter (crystal and Pearl for the snow, and Ocean and Mermaid for the shaker) and some of her micro beads (teal I think) also for the shaker.

I'd been wanting to use this gorgeous ribbon for something wonderful and I'm glad I finally was able to use it on this box. The dimensions in the end are 4.5 x 6.5 inches. A little bigger than I had hoped for, but it really was a nice size in the end.

The rhinestones are some I got on Amazon and are not my typical Swarovski. However they are glass and have a lovely twinkle!

The shadow box part is all patterns from Cricut's own site. The glitter paper that I used for that was all bought at HB. It was taken from their individual sheet isle, rather than from one of their pads. The white paper is from a collection of their's that is White on White. I need to get more if they still make it... I love that paper.

The house is a pattern I got through and cut on my Cricut. I used American Crafts cardstock for the majority of it. The roof is covered in hundreds of small dots, hand placed. The stones on the chimney and on the walkway or all hand made using airdry clay. Then colored with markers, then dusted with White ink.

Some tufts of Army Painter grass was added hither and thither. I did I zenithal technique using some white spray paint, then some spray glue and applied the glass glitter in layers to achieve the snow. There are lights in the house which the control is in a drawer at the base.

I think that highlights the majority of it. Let me know if you have any questions about a specific technique or item and I'll be happy to answer.

Thank you all for looking!
