LLC Retreat Day 2 - Fabulous Marci Explosion Box

Project #12
This project was amazing.  This was a class at the retreat. It is an explosion style box where upon removal of the lid, the sides fall down revealing pages that can be embellished or have photos.  This was designed by Tamara (her blog here). All papers shown was supplied at retreat.  Fabulous Marci stamp was in our goodie bag. Yay!! Finished project size: 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 6-1/2". 
Lid: size is 2" deep.
La-la Land Crafts dies used:  Stilettos, Two Leaves Rolled Rose (Small, Medium and Large), Book tab and Labels, Glasses and Stitched Tags which all can be found here. Fabulous Marci and Stiletto is popped with foam squares.
