My third Explosion box!

there, I made my third explosion box, but the first one i published.  I love doing them with Christmas papers/. They are relatively easy, I found the hardest part was picking the papers.  I used the Wrap It Up cartridge from Cricut to cut the flower gift box on the inside center, and other than that, I used ribbon I got at Wal mart and papers from Wal mart and Designs on Cloud nine and DCWV,  Hope you like it.
happy crafting and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
