Explosion Box Album

These are not complete instructions as i need to get some measurments that i do not have on hand, Will have it complete on Friday.

4 sheets of cardstock, 12x12, 11x11, 10x10, 8x8. The 12x12 and 8x8 should be same for outside of box, the other 2 can be same or just matching.

Score the 12x12 at 4" and 8" in both directions, 11x11 at 3 3/4" from all sides, 10x10 at 3 1/2 from all sides.

Score the 8x8 at 2" in all directions and diagonals at the corners.

Cut the corners out of the 12x12, 11x11 and 10x10.

You may round the corners on the t shaped papers. You may also leave them pointed depending on your taste.

Adhere all 3 layers in the center only.

Fold the 8x8 into the lid of the box. Fold the corners in to the center. Apply glue and use paper clips to hold while glue is drying

Add pattern paper to all layers. The measurments are 3x 2 1/2 for the top layer, 3x3 1/4 for middle layer, and 3 1/2x 3 1/2 for bottom layer. center square is 2 1/2x 2 1/2.

Upclose of the layers.

Upclose of bottom layer.

Add Pattern paper to the outside of the 4 flaps. The measurments for this are also 3 1/2x 3 1/2.

Add Pattern paper to the outside of the lid. The measurements are 1 1/2 x 3 1/2.
I added cardstock and then pattern paper to the top of the lid. The cardstock is 3 3/4x 3 3/4. the pattern paper is 3 1/2x 3 1/2.

At this point, you can add embellishments, you can also add ribbon-attaching it to the bottom and tie over the top to use as a closure.
