Exploding Box - First one!

I made my first exploding box!  I used the directions at 3 Cats and a Bug.  Thank you JenL for posting fabulous directions!

At the end of the school year, I make the card for my daycare provider and we all chip in for the gift.  Last year I made a word book.  This year, I decided to try the exploding box.  I am so happy that I did!  Here it is:

One of the sides:

And when you take the top off, boom!  The sides fall down and each has a picture of one of the four kids that go to our daycare. 

I literally followed JenL's directions that I posted a link to above so if you would like directions for making a box, please go to her awesome post!  It was way easier than I thought it would be to make and it didn't take me long at all!! If you have been waiting to try one, wait no longer!  I was surprised that it was way easier than I thought it was going to be!  Good luck!
