Scor-Pal Blog Hop - Summer Themed Explosion with Tilda!

Edited to add: Picked in the Top Ten at Paper Crafting Journey THANKS!!!
Also made the Top Ten at Crop Stop! Thanks guys!!!

Today brings another chance to win great prizes as it is another Blog Hop with Scor-Pal! We are teaming up over the Summer with lots of companies (you may have seen The Twinery and Clearsnap hops earlier) to introduce the fabulous Scor-Pal to many crafters who may not have seen it before.

This hop has 11 different manufacturers and it started at Discount Cardstock so if you just dropped by and haven't been hopping then make sure you go there for all the blogs to hop to. It will be worth it to visit all 11 blogs as the grand prize is worth over $300!

Today I decided to make a Summer themed exploding box, perfect for a gift and also with lots of places to add special photos and memories.

For directions to make the box please go HERE.
I made mine a little larger and added some pockets inside and another box but you get the idea :)

Happileigh Scrappin - Girlie

Papertake Weekly - Die Cuts
Tuesday Throwdown - Dimension and Texture
Magnolia-Licious - Photo Inspiration (I chose the colors)

Project Recipe:
Images - Magnolia
Paper - The Blossom Song by DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Grass Die - Accucut
Tag and Mini Envelope Dies - Accucut
Sentiment (on tag) - K and Co
Sentiments (inside) - KI Memories
Ribbon - Stash
Brad - The Paper Studio
Flower - Prima

I made the flower on the top in a very similar style to the Octagon Flowers but I used the beaded circle Nestie instead of an Octagon as I liked the edge it gave to the flower. I used 3 die cuts to make this size. I added a Prima flower to the center.

This is what the box looks like opened. The center box was super easy and would perfect to stash a little gift in :)

Strawberry Tilda

Tilda with Spring Bundle

Tilda with Flowing Hair

Tilda with Water Can

This little tag comes out for a special message.

I love this little envelope!
