In June, I'm teaching how to make this little exploding box at a gathering. We're actually making these for graduation party favors! This is just one I sort of "threw together" with what I had around the house. I think the actual boxes might have a real tassel or at least gold colored ribbon. The hostess is getting the supplies and I will do the prep before the gathering. They will hold treats inside and have a "thank you" on the reverse side of the mortar board.
