Exploding with Candy

I'm teaching a stamp class for a woman's group tonight, and I have two members of the group who will be my assistants since it's a large group.  To thank them, I've made them each an exploding box with peppermint candy inside.  Here's the outside.

The top of the box is so simple yet pretty that I took a photo of it, too.

When the lid is lifted off, the sides fall open.  The weight of the candies make the sides fall right down.  

Supplies Used:
Stamp set:  Best of Christmas
Stamp pad:  Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Gold and Silver Foil Sheets, Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Season of Style Designer Series Paper, Whisper White cardstock
Embellishment:  Frosted Finishes Embellishments
Punches used:  Large Oval, Scallop Oval, Christmas Ornament Punch
I used  glue dots to hold the candy onto the sides.  I used the Stampin' Trimmer Small Scallop Rotary Cutting Blade on the corner pieces so it gives those corners a pretty edge.

I so loved how this box turned out that we made them at my downline meeting on Friday, too.  There's something about silver and gold together that just makes me happy.
