it's still very hot here in Thailand for the season around +34C every day, phuuu, like it better when it is around +28C. Today I going to share a tutorial of a Exploding Box.
In the end of this tutorial you have a video how to do!
2 cardstock 12x12 " Bottom and Lid.
Here you can see the measure and the marks to score the box bottom.
To score the diagonal corners I use a ruler and the stylus on my Magnetic Cutting Mat.
I mark the 4 corner in heart shape and cut it out.
Fold the heart shaped corner
Distress all edges and scorings, both inside and outside.
Stamp your message inside the box. I used a christmas stamp from my "stash"
I cut out 4 pieces 3 1/8"x 3 1/8" of christmas paper and glue it on the outside of the box.
Internal pocket, 1 sheet 11 3/4 "x 11 3/4", score and cut as above. i did mine in green cardstock.
Cut/punch out a small piece in the middleof the edge of each pocket, distressed the Internal pocket in -brushed corduroy- on all edges and also cut out 4 pieces 3 3/8" x 4 1/8" in lightgreen cardstock, that I punched a decorating edge, for the inside pocket.
Decorated the 4 pocket with some nice papper, 2 5/8" x 3 7/8", remember to cut/punch as same as the Internal pocket, and distress the edges.
Tie a wire around 2 of the pieces and glue them on the Internal pocket.
Here is my finished result of the inside box.
Down here is the Lidfor the box. You start with a 12" x 12" red cardstock
Just follow the instructions here above and use a cutting Mat,stylus and a ruler for the scoring, it is a little bit tricky.
I decorated the outside of the lid, for the Top I cut out from paper 1 piece 3 7/8" x 3 7/8", and for the side of it 4 pieces 3 7/8" x 1 7/8"
Cut out from JustRite "Vintage Labels Four" as above, Punch a hole in the golded one and glue together, decorate and tie it on the boxlid.
Here is my finished Exploding Box!
Hope You enjoyed it as much as I did, see you soon!
