Congrats Exploding Box ♥

Hello everyone!
Today, I want to show you I made something special for my husband who has achieved an amazing feat in golf. He's made an Albatross - the rarest shot in all of golf - a few years ago, and moreover, this time he made a Hole-in-One! OMG, Isn't that amazing?? It's a pretty incredible achievement for golfers and I think surely it's one of life's truly memorable moments. Congratulations to my husband!  I've been golfing for over 15 years but I've never once gotten it. So proud of his feats!

Okay, Here's my project, it's exploding box as he remember that glorious day forever. I found the tutorial for the box over at the talented Camilla's blog HERE.
And I've used several Magnolia's DooHickey dies for this one.
こちらは先日ゴルフでホールインワンを達成した夫のために作った作品です。彼は以前にもアルバトロス(というプロゴルファーでも滅多にないレアなショット)を達成したのですが今回またホールインワンという偉業を達成しました♥ 私ももうかれこれ15年以上ゴルフをしていますが一度も達成したことありません、こんな大興奮な体験を私もいつかしてみたいです!

これはExploding Boxと呼ばれるもので海外のクラフターの間でも人気のプロジェクトです。蓋を開けるとサプライズな仕掛けが現れます。このボックスのベースの作り方はこちらのチュートリアルを参考にしています、ベースのボックス自体は簡単に作れますしその後のデコレーションを考えるのもとても楽しいので興味のあるかたは見てみてください。

Here's the box lid..
I've placed the Lace Coaster that I've cut out with DooHickey die, and added some flowers, golf tees, a golf charm and lots of lovely embellies.

Dies(Box lid): Lace Coaster, Rose Leaf, Clover With Flower, Vintage Signs - Magnolia DooHickey dies, Chip Block Alphabet - Tim Holtz Sizzix
Flower: Green Tara, Magnolia
Paper: Magnolia

ボックスの蓋の部分にはゴルフティーやゴルフクラブチャーム、フラワー、そしてLace Coaster, Rose Leaf, Clover With Flower, Vintage Signsという4種のマグノリアダイを使用しています。

When the lid goes off..

I've added 2 butterflies made with Magnolia's DooHickey die "Swirly Butterfly" and cut out with a Martha Stewart punch, so when it opens it looks so pretty!
Inside of the box.. It opens flat like this.

I've added a 2 tier cake for the inside the box. I've placed Moss Mat Green and attached a golf tee on top of the cake, and then I put a special golf ball on it, and decorated with plenty of flowers, berries, ribbon and pearls.
I've added a #1 flag cut out with Magnolia's DooHickey die "Flags".

ボックスの中です。2段ケーキを作りそこにモスを敷き、ゴルフティーとボールを置きフラワーなどでデコレーションしています。ここにもSwirly Butterfly, Flags, Lace Coaster, Vintage Signsという4種のマグノリアダイを使用しています。うさぎはマグノリアLost & Found CollectionからBunny Princeを使用しています。 CongratulationとYou Are So Specialのスタンプもマグノリアです。
I've used lovely Magnolia's image "Bunny Prince" from the Lost & Found Collection 2014 which coloured with Distress Ink re-inkers.
Also, I've placed the Lace Coaster and the Vintage Sign cut out with Magnolia's DooHickey dies.
Sentiments: Congratulation {text} - Lost & Found Collection 2014, You Are So Special - You Are So Special Collection 2011 both also from Magnolia.

♥ ♥
I've used the gorgeous embellishment which is perfect for any occasion (e.g. congratulation, celebration like this, wedding and anniversary etc.) -  "15mm Pearl & Diamante Embellishment" from the fabulous Ribbon Girl online store.
The other embellies I used: Ivory 30mm Wild Roses, Sweetheart Blossom White, Natural Button Twine and Beaded Stamen White/White also from the Ribbon Girl.
I'd like to enter this into following challenges:
