April Fool's Day Blog Hop

Welcome and Happy April Fool's Day! If you have arrived from Lindsey's blog then you are in the right place, if not, scroll down to the bottom of this post and start at the beginning!
I created this special box, isn't it beautiful.
But when you open it.......................................... you get a surprise!
 April Fool!
It is an Explosion Box from svgcuts.com! The images inside are all from the Lettering Delights "Peek-a-Boo" svg set. Here are all of the images inside, there are thirteen of the twenty in the set represented here!

When you close it in order to put the lid back on, you can see in the following photo that there is a small space where you could put a small gift inside the box.

I love the way this turned out and the lady who will be receiving it will love ti too, I am sure! There is blog candy, so leave a comment but I am still getting it together so it is a surprise!! LOL

Here is the blog hop list so you can be sure to not miss anyone!

Great project! I love Lettering Delights - great use of their SVGs. BTW, I saw you posted about the Cricut cake on FB. Did you happen to see the FB comment right before yours and go to the link she recommended? The article is very interesting....you should read it if you get the chance.
