I just love these little explosion boxes...they are great little boxes just on their own with a greeting on the inside, or you can add someone's favorite tea bags or a little cello with candies and chocolates, etc and it makes a cute little gift to give a neighbour, co-worker or teachers.
These little boxes have been around for quite some time. The first time I made one was in a class taught by Karen Duke about four years ago or so (it was the first cardmaking class I took and what a fantastic first class I experienced!!). We also made them in one of Liz's classes and I taught others how to make them when I was teaching cardmaking at Michaels last year.
They are so easy to make and there are so many ways to decorate them, simple or fancy! The bottom of the box is 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" and scored at 2 1/2" and 5" both ways and the lid is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and is scored at 3/4" on all sides. Check out the video for all the rest of the details. Thanks for stopping in!
