Handmade Valentine Gift: Valentine Explosion Box

                             Valentine Explosion Box

Love is in the air, February is all about showing love. It’s not that you can’t express your love in the rest of the days,  but Valentine day and other occasions this month make it particularly special. Of course, on V day you want to express your love towards your Loved ones through gifts. I think the best and precious gift that one should exchange should be handmade that express your love, hard work, and creativity. While making it, the person always remains in your mind for whom you are making it for.

Moreover, it is far best then market gift which does big holes in the pocket . I have just spent Rs. 270 in total. Rs. 170 for photos and Rs. 100 on sheets. I am a creative bud who get self-involved in one or another creations, due to which I have lots of decorative material at home which I used in here.

Today ,I bought Valentine explosive box for you which is can be made by using paper & photos only. I have taken Valentine theme, you can make it for a birthday, baby shower etc. You need not be expert in drawing, painting or craft. Even my daughter enjoyed while making and responded amazingly with the creation of its every part . Let’s began with  Boom box -explosive box.
