Project 1 for my Certificate in Papercraft coursework

This is my first experience of making an exploding box. I was pretty chuffed with my first attempt and already have an order from a lady at work to make one for a girl.  That boosted my confidence somewhat.  Please let me know of any other ideas on how I could improve on my first attempt. 

The cardstock was from create and craft, the ribbon and peel offs were from my own craft box.  The images were printed on decoupage paper from Joanna Sheens Messy Rabbit CD and also a create and craft Occasions CD.  The lettering was stamped using Black Onyx Versamark ink pad and coloured using Promarkers.

Thank you fellow crafters and followers
