About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Explosion box by Cheryl

A few weeks ago, Michelle came up from Wollongong to show us her "Explosion boxes". We all love sharing ideas and putting our own twist on things. Here is Cheryl's explosion box.

You take the lid off and there is an 'explosion' of prettiness.

 Including butterflies flying around!

 Very sweet.

Everyone is now carefully keeping that clear plastic that comes with so many products. Strips of this are used to make the butterflies airborne.


Cheryl's floral center is striking too.

Here is the wrapping paper she used for the butterflies and some of the flowers. So really, not an expensive project but one that is very effective. Wouldn't that be a special box to give some jewellery or cash in as a gift?

  1. Wow! This explosion Box looks great. It is easily as good as any I make and sell! Proud to have been able to pass on some ideas. I look forward to my next visit! I'd love to learn from you guys, those lovely paper tole and intricate frames.


I LOVE to have your comments and will try to answer questions as best I can.
