Candy Sleigh Explosion Box

Karl has a $5 gift exchange at school this week and thanks to a candy sale at CVS I was able to stay within budget to make a candy sleigh.

If ever there were a time for an explosion box, right? I cut lightweight chipboard into the panels I would need for a 7" x 4.5" x 4.5" box. The lid is 7.25" x 4.75" x 1". I attached ribbon to the box lid, hiding the ends inside the lid underneath the interior paper panel. The bow is hot glued to the top.

Later this evening we'll be hunting our weekly clues for the Countdown to Christmas, so keep an eye out for that.
