Exploding cake box...

Hey everyone...
Today I have something different to share with you, My first ever exploding cake box!!
I have used lots of Magnolia doo-hickeys for this one, no coloured in images this time...

Here is the box before its opened...
Doohickey butterfly takes pride of place on the box lid...

and here it is the cake inside........

With the lid off you can see how the cake sits inside...
Box is all held up using ribbon!!

I added a cascade of flowers down the side and some ribbon to decorate the cake...
I love the pearl trim on the bottom!! (thanks jenny)

I used the dream tag doohickey die for the tag sentiment base...
and My love heart doohickey for some cute hearts to decorate the sides...

Well what do you think of my first try at an exploding bow??
Thanks for visiting me...
