Explosion box and Miniature garden

Easy to guess from title...Yess.... i wish to quill a miniature garden in an explosion box. As the box is my first time try, i wanted to made it as simple one....

Few closer views

Made trellis with my MS layered arches punch. Climbers are made with floral wire which are covered with green floral tape. Leaves and flowers are from punches. Can you see that tiny one lying on grass...Oh yay...Quilled mushroom on several grass layers which are finely fringed ones from green cardstock. For fringing, i used Fiskars spring scissors, its really like a breeze if you are doing lots of fringing. The handle is made in such a way to ease the action and the spring used there gives such a comfort while fringing.
Butterflies are punched out. Decorated the lid with the tile punch and other punched out bits.

Hope you all like..
