I have never seen anything like this before, a castle made from an explosion box, if you decide to make anything similiar to my project, would you be ever so kind to link where you got the inspiration from. Thank you so much!

I have turned my Explosion box into a Magical Castle, I just couldn’t resist with these darling Fairytale Stamps, from the Fairytale Collection.
