From me to you….

…I’m back and I have a present for you!


Dreaming Tree recently introduced their new bundle It’s Your Birthday with gorgeous items to make for any Birthday to make the Birthday Child feel truly blessed. But when I saw the Explosion Box, I knew that it could be used for more than birthdays….

This is what I came up with:

What a great gift box for Christmas gifts!!! Right???? And it was so easy to cut out and assemble. I simply removed the pattern and items like the balloon and candle, that I didn’t want and replaced them with some patterns from the Silhouette Design Store. I used AC cardstock in Sapphire, Rouge, Pine and White along with some gold foiled cardstock and white glitter paper. Finally I added some bling here and there – especially on the Christmas trees as small light bulbs and a pom-pom with some glitter on top of Santa’s Hat. Easy peasy….. 🙂 One thing to be aware of is that the glitter paper from AC (Christmas Paper Pad) doesn’t do well with glue so I used glue dots instead.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I hope you liked my idea….I think it could be the new Christmas Trend of 2016 😀 ❤

      1. No need to be sorry, I think it’s funny that we both thought of the same thing! I’ll definitely share when I build mine. 😃 In the meantime, I love yours. ❤️
