"Christmas Day" Explosion Box

Happy Monday everyone! I'm so happy Thanksgiving is this Thursday. I can almost smell the turkey cooking in the oven. Yum. Can't wait!!

If you're anything like me, the holidays creep up ever so slowly. Then suddenly it's Christmas Day and all the craft projects you wanted to do just didn't get done. This year I'm sticking to my guns and getting a little crafting done each day.

Today I have a Christmas project to share with you. This weekend I created my very first explosion box. I know right - I've never made one! It's like a right of crafting passage to make on. Haha. It was so easy and fun to make. And the end product is just darling.

Enjoy this quick video showing how the box opens and fun details inside.
