HOW TO MAKE EXPLOSION BOX

Nothing is more special than gifting your bestie something which  reminds them of you, and all your beautiful memories. You can simply make a card to express your unconditional love for them, or if that’s not enough to contain your love, an explosion box is the right pick for you!  There are so many other options too, but personally I feel, this is something they will cherish forever.
