Ever wonder what an exploding box or explosion box is? It's much more harmless than it sounds. The term is used to describe paper boxes that have cunningly been created so that the sides cascade outwards as the lid is removed. It's a fun and versatile concept that combines scrapbooking, memory keeping, journaling, card making, stamping, and gift-giving all in one.
Since this is a do-it-yourself craft, you can customize this exploding box any which way you'd like. For instance, you can try adding rubber stamped tags with a special message, attaching decorative embellishments, adding keepsakes, pictures or mementos, or anything else that you can think of. When done you will have a paper box that reveals layers of fun photos and accents when you remove the lid.
