Anniversary exploding box - Popcorn the Bear

Morning everyone, what a windy Sunday here in Liverpool. Billy wind is definatey having some fun out there.
I have been busy this morning making a exploding box for a anniversary for my cousin, they got married the day before Valentines so Ive made it all lovey and cute.
I have used the Popcorn the Bear - Romance Cd rom from Crafters Companion which you can find HERE.
I also used my Ultimate Pro and boxer board to measure out the box and the lid.

I want to enter this into the challenge over at Crafters Companion news Blog where they want to see Valentines day themed cards ( I hope this is ok and its not technically a card) using some of their products.

These are both outside shots of the box, you can see I printed out some ribbon borders from the Cd rom and have stuck them around the lid. I have some some toppers to also decorate the outside and some candy from my stash.

This is a shot of the box once the lid has been removed

These are both just to show the different ways I have decorated the inside panels (my apologies for the pictures being upside down dont know why they are showing like taht as they are the right way up when I uploaded them)

Close up of the smallest layer. I have used more toppers from the cd rom here and also some paper roses I already had made in my stash. I also coloured some peel off stickers to make them red to fit in with the box.

 (again apologise for the upside picture not sure how to turn it around)

I have used some decoupage on the last 2 panels from the cd rom on the 'mid size' print so that it fits nicely onto the 9cm squared panel.

I hope you like it am sure my cousin will love it, just a bit different than a card.
