It's Easter Blog Hop Day 3!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the “It’s Easter” Blog Hop Day 3 to help you get ready for this wonderful Easter season. Joining me in this fun celebration are some of the most talented crafters that I know. I do have a few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for my blog candy you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment. If you have just came from Suzanne, you are in the right place.  If not, and just hopped on this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.

 Here is my third project for the third day of the hop. I made an Easter Explosion Box for the first time. Since I was new to making this, it took me a while to figure it out. LOL When I would visit other bloggers, I would see the fantastic Explosion Boxes they have made and I fell in love with them. So I said to myself, let me give it a try and I did.

 Blue Card stock: 12 x 12
Teal Blue Card stock: 11-3/4 x 11-3/4
Light Blue Card Stock: 11-1/2 x 11- 1/2
 Pink, Purple, Blue cardstock 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
Variety of Embellishments
Queen & Co.: Pink Pearls
Create a Critter- Bunny 2.5 (I think! LOL)
Michael $1 stamps: Spring

First Step: Choose your first 3 colors you would like for your box. The bottom layer is measured at 12 x 12, second layer is cut at 11-3/4 x 11-3/4, and the top layer is cut at 11.5 x 11.5. Then you score each side at 4 inch mark. So you will have a tic tac toe rid. Fold it at score line. Now cut at every corner outside square. Now that you have done all three. Glue down the center for each. For the Lid, you take the color card stock of your choice it cut it at 7-1/8 x 7-1/8. Then you score it at 1-1/2 in, rotate and do the same for all sides at 1-1/2 inch.
 Second Step: For each square: You have the option of decorating however you like. I added a different color card stock on each side at 3-3/4 x 3-3/4
 Third Step: Here is just a picture of what each side has.
This first picture shows a banner that says: Happy Easter.
This second picture is Happy Spring Time.

This third picture shows a happy chick enjoying Spring time.
This picture shows Miss Chicky- The sensational singer.
