Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Bo Bunny Blog Hop: Explosion Box Purse Tutorial

Today is my turn on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog Hop with Bo Bunny Press! I am so excited to share this sweet purse/explosion box for Mother's Day with you.

This is the inside which I added layers and layers of tissue papers cut with flower die template to create a focal point with a simple sentiment.


This is the close up of the flap...


To achieve this project, I searched on the internet on how to create an explosion box purse and got to work using Garden Journal and Garden Journal Bloom patterned papers from Bo Bunny's Garden Journal Collection. E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips did the trick on adhering everything together. Hook and loop tape was added as a closure.



For the inside of the box, I wanted something with sparkle so I cut about 30 layers of white tissue paper with a flower die template, pierced a hole in the middle and secured with a brad. Then I bunched up a few layers at a time to create dimension and volume.




In a puddle of water I added a brush full (maybe 1/2 teaspoon) of Pigment Powder - Pink (coming soon!) to mix and then brushed onto the tissue paper blossom for color and shimmer.



Adhere the blossom with DODZ™ 3D. The sentiment die cut was added with 3D Foam Squares - White, Regular on top of another die cut that I secured with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips.


For the purse flap, I placed Garden Journal Airy patterned paper onto 3D Foam Creative Sheet and cut with an ornate frame die template. Next I cut/embossed a butterfly die with Garden Journal Airy (back side) patterned paper and stencil Wasabi Glitter Paste through the die. Let settle for a minute or two, gently take it out of the die and let dry.


Added Double Dot Think Pink Jewels and then the embellished butterfly die cut on top. Place the embellishment onto the flap. There you have it! Something for Mother's Day, birthday day...really any occasion and so easy to create!

I just saw the exploding purse technique yesterday for the first time. I have to say that I am loving this (new to me) technique. Yours is gorgeous! I love the paper you chose, and the flower in the center is amazing. I really like the coloring you did on it to make it seem more realistic.
