My Exploding Box Challenge - NO.1

Little boxes on the hillside work desk,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky card stock,
Little boxes on the hillside work desk,
Little boxes all the same,
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of ticky tacky card stock
And they all look just the same.

I have been asked if I could make quite a few of these, 12 in fact, in similar design to the last 2 I've made. 
So here goes. Box no.1.

I didn't have enough 12x12 white card stock so we took a drive down to Hobby Craft in Maidstone this morning but they didn't have enough either! At least I have some so I can be getting on with for now! I was a good girl, very restrained. I brought Amelia a small, lined notebook (to keep her quiet) and apart from the card stock all I treated myself to was one of those tiny little alphabet sets from Dovecraft but once home I had to restick nearly all the little foam and rubber tips onto the wooden blocks!

MY little box meets the criteria over at:

Pile it on - Put a Bird on it
Sister Act - No 8, anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything goes

Tomorrow I will start box no.2 LOL

This is just beautiful! No wonder you have been asked to make so many of them. Who wouldn't want this little box on their desk top? Thanks for joining us at the Sister Act Card challenge this week.
