Hola Bloggers! Time sure does go fast when you're having fun! Day 4? Wasn't yesterday Day 1??? lol  Ok so today's project is this cute little Mini Exploding Box. This project should be labeled with a huge WARNING on it...Talk about getting addicted and wanting to make more and more These cute little boxes are just adorable and hanging on a Christmas tree is even cuter. They measure 2x2. To make these little boxes I found a video from "Scrapyardchicks" on youtube. She has some great vids out there in YT land. Stop by and check them out. I did alter how to hang the box from her method, but the concept is still the same. I used American Crafts "Merry Mint"  Paper Collection. That paper is adorable and I've been hoarding it for awhile now. LOL  I've made some more for our tree and it's such a GREAT feeling watching the kids open these little boxes with smiles on their faces looking at our Christmas memories. If you have any questions on this project please feel free to leave a comment. I hope you all are having a Great time creating! See you all soon! :) Warm Hugs! Nano :D
