I made an exploding box to hold a gift card for my son's girlfriend's birthday.  I finally was able to give it to her yesterday.  I also carved a stamp of their French bulldog puppy for her.

First, the stamp.  I made the box to hold the stamp and a black stampin' spot (ink pad) for her.  I love the new Undefined Stamp Carving Kit.  It takes a little practice, but I was able to make the stamp to look like their new puppy.

Here's a better picture of what I carved:

I also made Alicia an exploding box.  On one side, I put a card that had the months and days so I could mark her birthday.  I had each of the fours sides of the outside of the box decorated different from one another.

Of course, when you open the box, it "explodes" open.  I had a gift card standing up in the middle.

I've had fun making and giving these exploding boxes.

Cardstock:  12" x 12" Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
Ribbon:  Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon
Stamp Sets:  Six-Sided Sampler, Chalk Talk, Bring on the Cake, Yippee-Skippee!
