Explosion Box Mini Album

Thank you for Joining us on My Cricut Craftroom's Mini Albums Blog Hop.

Today I made an Explosion Box Mini Album to share with you. For this project I used two Cricut cartridges. For the Explosion Box itself I used The Mini Books cartridge and for the cute little Monsters I used the Mini Monster's cartridge.

 Here's the finished product, all closed up and looking spiffy. I added round wooden balls ( which I painted orange) for the feet and lid. Halloween striped ribbon from my stash and lovely green lace ( also from my stash).

This is what it looked like when I first opened it.

I'm never quite sure how to decorate the center of the box. This time I chose this cute little guy.

I think this monster just might be my favorite. I'm really glad I was able to find my googly eyes. It took my awhile, but they're a perfect fit for all my monsters.

The frog is on the Mini Monster's Cartridge and because my sister loves frogs I decided he would be a perfect addition to my little album.

 I had to cut out the water monster twice. The first time he was too big to fit in the box. 

I chose to make my mini album Halloween themed for a couple of reasons:
I have four family members who have birthday's at the end of October.
I have a plethora of Halloween themed paper because Halloween is my sister's favorite day.
I had two packages of black and orange cardstock left over from my daughter's graduation party.
last but not least, it was my goal to make this project without going out and buying anything for it. And I did it. Everything that I used for this project I pulled from my stash. It was a momentous occasion. :)

Thank you for stopping by. Your next stop is Nancy's Blog. 

 I know she's going to have something amazing to show you.
