An Explosion box

Happy Easter everyone!!
I hope you all have a nice day :)

A few days ago P3 came out with a new challenge.  P3 is a challenge blog for 3d projects!  This month they are having a Design Team call and the challenge is a photo inspired one.  This is the photo

How incredible is that!?!?!  This was made by Wendy Vecchi.
The prize this month is fab too, Wendy Vecchi's Book AND a flower-shaped Spellbinders die.

I don't have much imagination and I always struggle with 3d (Thats why I love doing it, lol) so I look for online tutorials.  I wanted to do some of them big paperclip bookmarks but I can't find any big paperclips sooo I went with an explosion box.  This did my head in finding a tutorial, I found a few and eventually went with one from Split Coast Stampers.  Scs have fab tutorials I am just terrible with inches so I get annoyed when I get it wrong because I can't figure out inches lol.  I did a test box and it went ok but I wanted the sides a bit longer and this is what I came up with.  The outside is plain because I didn't want it to look too good and outshine the inside!  If I made this for someone in mind I think it would of turned out so much better but I didn't!

and this is the inside

The dp on this is more green but it doesn't look it :s
I still want to work on this and make the sides longer and the lid is a tiny bit small.  I must get prepared for getting very annoyed and wasting loads of paper! lol
I also would like to enter this for the following challenges
Creative Card Crew - Vintage/Aged
Flutter by wednesdays - Blue Green and White
Simon says - Distress
