Explosion Boxes of Love

I made Surprise Gift Boxes for my mom and one of her very dear friends, for Valentine's Day this year. I love the boxes once they are finished but truthfully I have never put together one with photos until this past week and WOW! Amazing! I love that I got 25 photos into a 5X5 area! (Photos are mounted front and back of pages.)

These truly are one of the best gifts that you can give someone! I think mom will love it. It has photos of her kids and grandkids in it and doesn't take up a lot of room in her home or if she decides to put it on a desk at work, it will be a great way to show off her loved ones!

Mom's I made blue and brown. She loves those colors and I made Linda's brown and pink, which I love! Both have embellishments for 6 of the photos. I keep them small because of the size and because I want the photos to be the focus.

Here's moms:
