I made 2 of these exploding boxes as Birthday/Halloween gifts for my Mom and MIL and I am pretty happy with how they turned out. I found the tutorial on the Everyday Cricut blog for the paper bow and they are quite easy to master once you find the right paper...I had the best luck with Bazzill. Core'dinations kept creasing as I was shaping the bow. I kept the inside of the box pretty basic, and left room for pictures so the Mom's can show off their halloween costumes. Now I am off to work on supplies for my upcoming craft fair. Thanks for stopping in...be crafty!
