Exploding Box !

Yep I,m onto exploding box,s now ! which makes a nice change for birthday this year I have only made a couple so far,really enjoyed it,such a lot of possibilities its all down to the imagination and creativity :) If you would like to make one here,s the instructions :) 2 pieces of 12x12 card and papers Score at 4"in then 8" in. Turn card and score the same Cut 4 corners out 1 9x9 piece of card and paper Score at 3" then 6" Turn and score the same Cut corners out....... For the Lid 1 piece of 6"x6" card allow 1/8th over to fit nicely as some card thicker or cut the card to 6 1/8" x 6 1/8" You may want to layer the sides of box which makes it a bit thicker. Score at 1" all round for the corners cut in diagonal then snip a piece out to glue fold the edges and turn in use UHU glue then put pegs on to hold while drying. Then embellish! enjoy There is a wineglass in the middle which is difficult to see in this pic...
