Wedding Explosion Box - Money Tree

Good Evening My Crafty Friends, I have been working on this explosion
box for most of the day, but I am so happy with the end result.  This is my
first attempt at an explosion box, but I am hooked...there will be many more to
be made in my  This is not only an explosion box though, I have also
created a 3-D Tree in the center.  It will be used for a money tree gift to the
Bride and Groom, but later she can attach tiny trinkets or photos with the mini
clothespins to the tree long after the money is plucked, lol.
I must warn you this is a very picture heavy post.  I hope
you all like it...I am very pleased with it.
The Explosion Box itself is from Penny Duncan SVG.
The Cardstock for the Box layers is ColorBok.
(also the Heart Lock Tag & Flower on top)
The Patterned Paper is from Momenta, Story of Us.
The Svg's for the Heart lock Tag & the Flower are both from
SVGCUTS which you can click on their Banner above to go
to their store.  The metal Tag with the wedding Ring is
from my stash and also I used some off white Tule and some fancy
glitter embossed stickers for the top that I picked up at Michael's.
Now let's open it up..............Ready......and.....Voila...Open Sesame.....
The Tree I cut at 5" from Cindy Loo Cart, I cut this 4 times.
Then I scored down the middle of each one and glued them all
together.  This was a bit challenging, but came out pretty darn good.
The Green papers in the center for the leaves are Bazzill, oh I love that stuff!!!

 Close up of the Top
with all of the lil clothes pins ready for the Money.
I will add another picture later after I fill it with money.

I entered this in a challenge over at the SVGCUTS Forum.

I hope you all have a Wonderful Weekend!!!
Thanks for looking and I would love to read
your comments.  Become a Friend if you would
like, I love making new friends here in our crafty world!!!
Hugs, Eva :0)
