Today I'm sharing a great box with you that I created for Cheery Lynn. I've also worked up a little tutorial for you so you'll be able to make one of these fun Explosion/Poppy Boxes yourself. Have fun!!!
Step 1: Cut two 9 inch card stock squares, cut one 5 1/8" square card stock. Cut four 2 7/8" square designer paper, cut 8 2 3/4 square designer papers for interior.
Step 2: Score one of your 9 inch squares at 3" and 6 ", turn your paper 90 degrees and score again at 3 " and 9". This will create a grid. You'll want to do this on both of your 9 inch card stock squares.
Step 3: Score each of your corner squares diagonally and fold. Fold inward as this is going to help create your box. TIP: I find using the 6" mark on my Scor-pal makes this easy as there is a marking at the bottom of your Scor-Pal that will help ensure you have it lined up correctly.
Step 4: Using strong tape apply your outside squares ( 2 7/8" ) to the base box.
Step 5: Cut four of your 2 3/4 squares in half and tape to inside of your explosion box along the ridges.
Step 6: On your second 9 inch square cardstock cut the outer corner squares off as shown above. Fold and crease.
Step 7: Tape your remaining square card stock pieces to the just cut cross/9 inch piece. You can also decorate the base center with designer card too.
Step 8: Score your 5 1/8" square at 1 inch on all sides. Cut a slit in where all the black marks are shown above. Fold and crease.
Step 9: Tape your flaps to the inside of the box top creating your top. Now the really fun part decorate as desired.
I created the lovely poppies using my Cheery Lynn Dies of course. Here is a complete list of dies used on this box.
Have a wonder, safe and blessed Memorial Day weekend and I'll see you next week.
