Crhistmas Explosion Boxes

Yes, I have been having fun with these Explosion Boxes.   The lovely Kaye (eyak48) over at Craftmad has written a terrific tutorial for us.  Be sure to visit and have some fun.

I have used some lovely glitter reindeers to decorate this box.  I added the little red nose to Rudolf and made a matching striped ribbon flower.  To finish I added the lovely red Merry Christmas sticker from Sticker Store.

I printed each of the reindeers names onto white card stock and then tore the top edge to create a snow effect.

The red bell Christmas tree ornament is my present to a friend I am visiting today.

This box I finally got to use this lovely that I have saved from a Better Homes and Garden Magazine one year.  I have decorated the outside with beautiful clear glitter bell stickers which I have stuck to matching card and cut around.  The greeting stickers and bell stickers are from Sticker Store.

This time I decorated the box with these beautiful Allison Ellis Christmas design papers.  Wrapped each panel with gold edged ribbon.  I then cut out a bauble from the paper and raised it up with 3D foam.

Hope you have fun creating some of these boxes too.
