MCT 12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 5

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop with My Creative Time!
We hope that the ideas we share will help you with your last minute decorating and gift ideas! There will be giveaways on the My Creative Time blog EVERY day during the 12 days hop, become a follower of this blog, and be sure to also comment on each blog every day for your chance to win a prize EACH DAY! 

Be sure to leave a way for us to contact you in case you win! :)

The project I'm sharing today is a mini explosion box. The box measures 2 inches and is perfect for gifts of jewelry, a small toy or candy treat, and they fit beautifully in small hiding places. They are also great for stocking stuffers.  When I was a kid, my dad would hide small presents in the branches of the Christmas tree. It was so much fun to find them, I carried this tradition down to my own kids. {See link in product list below for instructions how to make these adorable little boxes.}


and they are easy to open too. Just slide off the ribbon, take off the top and the box pops open on its own. Fun!





Here's the line up. If you are starting at my blog, be sure to hop on over to Emma's blog to
start at the beginning so you can be entered for today's drawing.
