Have I got a treat for you today! This is a deep dive into Explosion Boxes and it's another beautiful project from Susie Coates from A Handmade Christmas in Sydney. The attention to detail in these projects is outstanding and I hope you enjoy them!

The Shining Brightly Designer Series Paper and Distressed Gold work really well together for this sparkling box.

Oh my goodness......isn't it elegant?

Look at the detail! The pocket has a little note card that you can slip out to write your message.

How cute is the little Christmas bauble with it's sparkly gold bow on top?!

If you would like to have a go at this project, contact me for a pdf with the instructions.

This is such a happy Explosion Box! Look at those colours. It reminds me of something you'd find in a child's play room like a Jack-in-the-box. The paper is Merry, Bold & Bright. It's retiring at the end of the year, so be quick if you'd like some.

Take off the lid, and....surprise.....there's another box inside. So exciting!

Oh wow....can it be true? Another beautiful box!

The final reveal! What a magical little Christmas tree. This sparks so much joy for me. And I can only imagine that anyone receiving this would be thrilled. I can't tell you how many times I've opened it, then reassembled it and opened it again. It's like I can't get enough of the magic.

If you would a copy of the pdf instructions for this box, please contact me and I will email it to you.

I hope you've enjoyed this week's amazing project from Susie. Leave her some love in the comments!

Happy crafting
