Prime Day Favorites

Do you have an Echo Dot? Okay, call me crazy, but I LOVE this thing. I keep one in the kitchen and every day while I’m doing dishes and cooking dinner I ask Alexa to play 80’s music. It’s awesome. I can listen to music, it keeps the kids happy, and a little dancing around really makes them think they have a cool mom. (Although one day my dancing skills won’t be the coolest to them).

If you have been on the fence about the Echo, GET IT! It’s worth every penny. It reads the news to me in the mornings, plays my favorite music, and can call out reminders! SAVE $20 & get it for $29.99 today only!!

Need gift ideas? Look no further. This list is great for stocking up pre-Christmas.

Explosion Box: Handmade Father’s Day Gift

Father’s Day was Sunday. Last Sunday! And I just finished up an explosion box as part of this years handmade gift. How bout you? Any other late crafters.

Each year I do a couple of things: 1) make a handmade card 2) get the dog and kid(s) hand or footprints into the card or on a piece of artwork 3) get it framed to hang in Husband’s office. He has graciously hung every card, framed drawing, and canvas painting that the babe or me have made. You can see a selection of past artwork in these posts about a DIY Father’s Day #1 DAD Canvas, DIY Wood Photo Transfers and Monster Father’s Day Footprint fun.

The Explosion Box How-To

Explosion boxes have become my go-to handmade gift. They are thoughtful, relatively easy to make, can hold any photos or memorabilia, and are downright cool. The look on the recipients face is priceless- especially when it is filled with their favorite memories and kind words.

You can make an explosion box super simple or with many layers and pieces. For this explosion box, I chose to make a simple base and add one insert of favorite photos from our year (2018).

*Photo Tip*

To make the perfect size printable photos for an explosion box I use the Project Life iPhone App and collage two or four pictures into one, then print, cut and glue them where I need. It is a great way to get them down to a 2″x 2″ or 3″x 4″ size which fits into the boxes quite well.

Starting Out

The base size for this explosion box is a 4″ cube so you will start with 12×12″ card stock and score at the 4″ mark on all four sides. Cut out and remove the outer sections.

Lid: 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″, scored at 1″ on all sides. Cut tabs.

Decorate before you glue.
