Christmas Explosion Box

Hi everyone! It’s Wednesday and that means it’s Huuump Daaay! I’m not posting on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog today but have popped in this morning to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a fun exploding box (a box with a box inside) created with the FREE Simply Crafty SVGs Square Explosion Box cut file. And yes, I did say free – Sandy has tons of freebies in her store, so if you’re new to electronic die cutting or if you’re just wanting to add some cool cut files to your arsenal, check out the store! This is sadly my last post for Simply Crafty SVGs and I want to thank Sandy and the rest of the gang for having me along for the past 2-1/2 years! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself and really appreciate Sandy’s generosity!


I, too, went with a Christmas theme and used some awesome PhotoPlay papers. I had the tinsel wreath ornament in my stash so I cut off the ornament string and hot-glued it to the lid.


Here’s a shot of the box opened up to reveal the small box in the center. Loving all these patterned papers!


Here are two overhead shots…

And one more look… so happy with how this turned out! Now to wait for Christmas, lol! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
