Make your own Explosion Box

I mentioned the explosion box in the latest Whimzee's Newsletter. The box would be an awesome gift for someone special. It does take a significant amount of time to complete. If you're interested in a birthday box, we have a few kits from Bo Bunny in the store. I made a sample last Winter. If you'd like to take a look, it's on the counter in the store. We were thinking of doing a class, but since it took longer than 2 hours, we decided against the class. The birthday box would be a lot of fun for a 30th, 40th or 50th party...or a Sweet 16.

This explosion box is so cute and made from the 3 Bugs in a Rug Summer collection. It looks like the designer used only one of the three layers mentioned in most explosion box instructions. I love this idea, as it cuts out a ton of time from the process and still results in a totally fun gift idea. You could make one of these for Grandma for her birthday or Christmas. Or you could make one as a hostess Thank You, for that friend who loaned you her beach house for weekend this summer. You pick! :)

Here's a link to a blog with step-by-step photos and detailed instructions.

As always, we'd love to see photos of your latest creations! And we welcome comments & suggestions about the store, the newsletter or the blog!
