Ever wonder what an exploding box or explosion box is? It’s much more harmless than it sounds. The term is used to describe paper boxes that have cunningly been created so that the sides cascade outwards as the lid is removed. Such a fun and innovative way to personalize a birthday gift, an anniversary gift, or even boxes for wedding favors. Simply change the color and theme of the paper or cardstock used to create a box which is perfect for any occasion.

Since this is a do-it-yourself craft, you can customize this exploding box any which way you’d like. For instance, you can try adding rubber stamped tags with a special message, attaching decorative embellishments, adding keepsakes, pictures or mementos, or anything else that you can think of. Just place a gift in the center of the box, or make a tiny gift box and attach it to the center of the box, to hold your special present.
