Spellbinders | Birthday Explosion Box “How-To”

May 12, 2023

Hello crafty friends! Have you ever made an explosion box card? I had always found them a bit intimidating but decided to try and make one of my own that would be easy to re-create. I think explosion box cards are fascinating and are worth the extra effort for that special person in your life. My mom is having a milestone birthday this year, so I decided to make this especially for her.

Click HERE to see a short clip of how this box looks when opening it!

For a step-by-step process on how to make one of your own, you can head on over to the Spellbinder’s Blog HERE.

I have included links to all of the products that I used below. Affiliated links were used where applicable at no extra cost to you!

I hope you enjoyed my explosion box project today! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! If you liked this project and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed! Wishing you all a lovely day!

    Oh how fun this is … your Mom will love it, I’m sure! I wonder if you could put a real cupcake inside the inner box? My brother-in-law is a big cake fanatic, especially for his bday. Great job and I am going to check this one out …

      You are so sweet, Anne, thank you! 🤗 And yes, you could definitely substitute the paper cake with a real cupcake (which would taste much better! 😂👍🏻😉)

    Hello, I'm Rachel! Thanks so much for dropping by and welcome to my blog! I love creating and am excited to share with you my love for card making and paper crafting.
