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.


When you lift the lid . . .  


Here's a 5-second video of the box in action:

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