Explosion Album Box for a Birthday Boy, Doodlebug Dragon Tails

If you are in the mood to play with lots of embellishments, an explosion box is a great project!  

This cute box will make such a great gift ... and it's so much fun to make!  Not only is the box itself a unique gift, but you can tuck another small present down inside.
Once you remove the lid, the box folds open to reveal lots of layers and cute embellishments.  I also plan to add photos on some of the blank pages.
For the outside of the box, I added pattern paper and stickers from the adorable Dragon Tails collection.
The Odds & Ends were perfect for these pages ... just the right size!

Is that little dragon clip not the cutest?  He's hanging out on the edge of a treat bag that I cut down and re-glued to fit my small page. 
What would a mini album be without a few adorable boutique buttons?

And sprinkles!!  My all-time favorite embellishment ... especially the glitter ones :)

I finished up the box by hanging some mini garland around the lid. The links to the Explosion Box cutting file I used for the base layers (I cut all of the pattern paper by hand) and a similar cutting file by Lori Whitlock are listed below.  Have fun with this project!
