I am terrified of 3-D or altered items. I get very overwhelmed looking at the finished items and automatically say I can't do that. This week I decided to tackle that fear and make something. I picked one that was probably too difficult to start off, but I did complete it. I used some retired/retiring paper and I think it turned out okay. I learned so much while making it and that's the most important part!
For everyone that asked, here is the tutorial I used. I found one I liked better, but of course I can't find it now. Go figure! You can also Google scrapbook explosion box and pull up tons of them.
