I've been asking you gals about what the hottest trends are and I've seen a lot of chalkboard and stencil trends being thrown out there.  I don't believe anyone has mentioned the infamous "exploding boxes" yet. 
I've seen so many of them floating around the Internet that I knew I had to make one.
This adorable box is from the Silhouette Store.  I mixed and matched some October Afternoon and Bella Blvd. papers for a fun spring color scheme.
The directions at the Silhouette Store were so easy to follow and I will definitely be making more of these in the future!
I added a bit of ribbon, string, and a sentiment using my Dymo Label maker.  The flowers were embellished with Papertrey Ink buttons tied with black string.  
I am off to run some errands and get a few things done that have been neglected for some time.  
Tomorrow is a shopping day with the gals from work.
So off I go!
Don't forget to enter my giveaway HERE!
Have a great day!
