Happy 16th Birthday Ashlyn! {card and explosion box}

I can hardly believe that my youngest baby turns 16 today. It does not seem possible that she has graced our lives for 16 precious years. Where did the time go? *sigh* 

I have wanted to make an explosion box for awhile now, and I thought this would be the perfect time to step out my comfort zone and try something new. This project turned out so much better than I ever could have imagined and I am sure Ashlyn is going to love it! 

the outside:


I rolled paper to make 16 candles and then added some  3 Girl JAM Peach crinkle ribbon from the Tie Dye 3 Bundle to create the "flames". 

the card: 

I used some of the beautiful 3 Girl JAM Aqua Splash crinkle ribbon from the the Caribbean Splash bundle on the card and for several bows on/in the box.
