Hi everyone! I am SO sorry for the lateness of today's post! Crazy weekend! Anyway, today I am here with an explosion box! Have you ever made one? Well, this is my first one! It was so easy to construct! Then once you choose your papers, the decor just falls in line!
So, first you start with 2 pieces of 12" x 12" cardstock. One for the base and one for the lid. They can be whatever you have on hand, or whatever matches your paper and embellishments.
For the bottom, you are going to score 4" from each side.
Then, you are going to cut diagonally from each score line to the other, creating a triangle in each corner. This creates your flap. Cut ONE side of the flap so that it can be adhered to the inside of the box lid. I learned this the hard way!
Have a wonderful evening!
