Exploding box with graphic 45 French Country

IMG_8867 (Medium)I made this exploding box for my Mum for her birthday. She loves roosters ( I don’t know why) so it was easy to decide what to put inside it, and Graphic 45 french Country papers were a perfect match to decorate the panels inside the box. I used Sizzix tattered florals for the flower on the lid, and the only other thing I needed for this project was 3 1/2  12 x 12 sheets of bazzil to construct the box with. I repeated this project for a class, and everyone passed with flying colours! It truly is a simple box with lots of wow factor. I have done a youtube clip with all the measurements and a step by step guide to show you how to do it yourself. You will be able to access this here, and it will always be available by clicking on the youtube icon over there on the right of my blog! Til tomorrow….

  1. Wonderful tutorial Helen! I always wondered how the exploding boxes were made! I’m sure your Mom will love her box with the cute rooster and the beautiful papers! Love your paper trimmer too! Is that by Fiskars? You were able to cut and score using one tool – have to get me one of those! 🙂

    1. Hi Vanessa, I had to share the exploding box because it is so simple!My trimmer is by Fiskars as is the first tool I ever bought many moons ago now, it is a bit battered, but a great size and weight for portability, and replacement blades are readily available and not expensive, so wins all round!

      1. Sounds great! I really like how you were able to breeze through all the cuts and scoring. I currently have to use two tools and it gets a little bothersome. I think I will be adding a Fiskars trimmer on my Christmas list! Hope you have a wonderful day! ~Vanessa
