30 Days of Thanks - Days 25 & 26

Since yesterday was Thanksgiving so I didn’t craft lol, I’m counting this project as 2 days! 

Ohhh myyyy gawwdd (imagine Janice from ‘Friends’ voice lol)

I forgot how much I love making explosion boxes! It’s been a really long time since I’ve made one, but I already have plans for several more lol.

Are you familiar with Jennifer Maker? She is an ahh-mazing Cricut instructor that I’ve been following for years. If you have a Cricut, you should definitely check her out. She shares tons of video tutorials, instructions and a lot of files to upload into Design Space. 

Anyway, I recently seen her video on explosion boxes and decided to make one. My mail lady is retiring and instead of making a card, I thought this would be perfect to wish her luck and thank her for so many years of service.

I had an old paper pad stack that I decided to use as a trial. After making the whole box, I decided I loved it and it’s going to be the gift. The only thing I don’t love is that it’s one-sided paper. Next time, I will definitely use Stampin’ Up! paper because it’s always two-sided.

After everything was cut and sorted, I chose coordinating Stampin’ Up! ink pads to use …

Then I just started folding and gluing everything together! Here’s the completed box …

When you take the lid off, this is what you see … another box!

Take off that lid, and you see … another box!

And take off that lid and … another box!

Take of that lid and … it’s the inside lol. I plan on writing a note of thanks in the center. There’s plenty of room if you’d like to add a small gift or candies.

Here are the little note cards that I decorated with various stamp sets …
Isn’t that just the cutest gift?! I really loved making it and can’t wait to make more!

Thanks for stopping by today! Feel free to leave a comment or contact me …
