Button Farm Club North Pole Exploding Mini Album Kit Release

Hello, Friends!  This Button Farm Club North Pole Exploding Mini Album Kit Release might look a bit familiar to some of you.  That’s because I created this project for my Christmas In July week.  So many of you asked me for a tutorial that I decided to get Button Farm to put together a kit with all the supplies and instructions for you.  I think the version created for the kit came out even better than the original designYou’ll love displaying this 4” x 4” x 4 1/4” decorative box on your holiday table, work desk or mantel.

The magnetic North Pole Tree Topper glistens with sparkling gold Christmas trees, a shiny ornament and a snow-topped wood slice.  The removable tree topper offers display options, too.  You can set it beside the album to create a festive holiday scene, and take it off when it comes time to store the album away.

Each of the 4 sides is fully decorated so that you can turn the box and display a different scene as you count down each week in December. 

Sweet Treats Inside

Everyone loves a little sweet treat at the holidays.  So the center panel of the album is a clear acetate box filled to the brim with 25 mini candy canes. We added one for each day to make the wait for Santa just a little bit sweeter.

The interactive album inside the box has room for more than 2 dozen photos, journaling cards, and pockets.

North Pole Gift Cards

And if gift cards are what’s in Santa’s sack this year, you will love making a set of 5 quick and easy to mail gift card holders. They are such a great way to personalize and dress up a monetary gift.  Best of all, even after you finish the exploding mini album and the card set, you’ll still have a nice stack of papers left over.  Make additional gift card holders, or turn them into a festive banner or folio.

    Kathy, this is a fabulous kit. This box goes beyong the typical “exploding” box with all your wonderful pockets and fold out sections for journaling and photos. I can see adding bits of holiday memorbilia in the box once the candy is shared and enjoyed–maybe even a favorite ornament. tfs-stay well. Hugs.

    Blessings and lots of love, my sweet friend!

    Love this exploding box Kathy. A great idea for the topper to be magnetized! A lot of goodies inside for this project. This is one project I haven’t attempted to make yet. But, it is on my list. Or at least I can attempt my prototype & see how it turns out. Be well & TYFS
