I made this exploding box back in February for my mother's birthday. I devoted the 'sets of flaps' as follows: myself, my brother Richard, my brother Kevin, and my nieces.
The exploding boxes really are quite easy to make. When you give one as a gift, it is a real WOW when the recipient lifts the cover.

Feel free to leave a comment--I'd love to hear from you. If you make one yourself, post a link for me so I can see it too!
Until next time, happy crafting!
