I am so excited to be in this fun and fabulous hop– I love the look of Explosion Boxes- but, I have NEVER tried one before!
First let’s look at some pictures of the Explosion Box I made– Like all things, I decided to dive right in, and start off with an Octagon Explosion Box…even though I had never even made a square explosion box before!
I knew right away that I wanted some fireworks “shooting” out of the bottom of the box! I made the fireworks by punching out 1.5 inch circles, cutting out a pie shape from the circle and forming the cone shape and adhering it together- I made the bottom of the firework using adhesive and rolling paper up tightly onto itself. Then using a pop dot, I stuck the cylinder into the cone shape.
The star they are standing on, is also on an action-wobble to give it some movement when the box is opened.
That’s okay, though– because this will make the perfect centerpiece to a 4th of July table!
Here are some close up shots of the box.
All of the stamped sentiments come from the Pink by Design, Red, White & Blue stamp set!
Here’s the box all closed up and ready to give someone 🙂
Guess what else- for everyone hopping today- I have a FREE SVG to use to make a similar explosion box for yourself!
I will also be choosing one lucky Pink Cricut friend to win the Independence Day Cricut Cartridge!
