Wander Exploding Box

I created a magical fairy stump exploding box using Simple Stories Vintage Great Escape.  I just loved the mushrooms and wanted to make them the focal point.

The stump was created by making a tube with thin chipboard.  I covered the tube with chipboard planks covered with woodgrain pattern paper.  I made several planks in varies sizes, some of the planks overlap for dimension.


I made dividers to quarter the stump to hold the apothecary bottles.  You could add water, sand etc.. to the bottles.


I folded the bottoms of the mushrooms so i could stand them up around the stump.  The fungi growing on the trees is made with thick chipboard, and covered with pattern paper.  I paper tabs to attach fungi to the stump.


I positioned the mushrooms at varies depth around the stump- more dimension love me some dimension.

I made 3 matchbook mini booklets and 3 accordian mini booklets for the box sides.  Lots of room for photos and/ journaling.




Really happy with how it turned out.  Til next time...
