Exploding Box For Fun Fold SU Only Challenge #119

My life has been a bit hectic lately so I really needed some craft time. I was kind of stuck in a rut and not sure what I wanted to do. So I took a peek at the SU Only challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a fun fold card. I had been wanting to make an exploding box card for quite some time so I figured, why not!??? Well, because I have no clue how lol. So, I took a trip over to youtube. I watched a few tutorials on this card and voila! Well... not so much voila lol. I made so many mistakes and went thru so much paper before finally getting it right. So.. here it is:
Aren't those little "monsters" just adorable?? I'm not sure that the exploding box is considered a fun fold card but I don't see why it wouldn't be it folds flat and ships in a mailing envelope.... Either way, it was a learning experience but fun to make. Hopefully my next one goes a bit smoother ;)
