Explosion Box

Christmas Explosion Box

| Christmas, explosion box, Holiday

Hi Friends!

Today’s project share is a Christmas Explosion Box! I know I have said this before but I’ll say it again…I LOVE explosion boxes! They are so much fun and if you want to start gifting memories this is the easiest way to do it!


This explosion box is 4 x 4 inches when closed. I decorated it up just like a little present. I made a bow out of a gorgeous Poinsettia wire ribbon and a red and gold ribbon trim. I then add two Poinsettia’s to the top and a tag. 20161027_003716911_ios

The paper collection i used is Olde Time Christmas by Craft Smith and it is just gorgeous!20161027_003737644_ios

I added a small Christmas tree with a string of lights in the center and it is surrounded by gifts.

There is one large gift in the center that is 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches and it opens where a small gift can be added. I also added a Merry Christmas sentiment and an ornament embellishment. 20161027_003811624_ios

There are three layers to this explosion box and I added an additional four flaps for additional journaling or for messages.

These boxes come together so quickly and they are small enough to add pictures and notes quickly. They are the perfect way to gift memories.

I hope you enjoyed my project.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Explosion Box

| congratulations, explosion box, greeting card, thank you

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is an explosion box. I know, you probably already know how much I love explosion boxes! 

I think they are so fun and such a great way to say Happy Birthday Day, Congratulations or in this case thank someone for their service.


There are just so many places to add pictures, thoughts of fun or inspirational memories and add special touches for the special person you give it to.

The paper I used was the Jackson paper pack from CTMH. It is such great paper and went great with my little easel in the center.



I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!
