Exploding Box

Here are instructions for an exploding box .
I used 12x12 cards stock 4 sheets

Cut my card stock to 9"x9"
8 1/2" x 8 1/2 "
8 1/4"x 8 1/4"
 Then you need to score
9x9 = score at 3 " turn card score at 3" keep going all round
8 1/2x 81/2 = Had to go to cms as i got really confused .. score at 7.2 cms
8 1/4x 8 1/4 =  score at 2 3/4 " ( back to inches)
 cut off the 4 corner squares to leave a cross

 score all your cards
 only glue / tape the center panel
on large and medium
stack on top as you are glueing/ taping

 The Lid

you will need 6 1/4 " x 6 1/4" card stock
as with the inners you need to score at 1 1/2 " all round
and fold your score lines


 cut a small triangle out of each corner
fold this under your straight edge and glue

Finished product just waiting to be decorated

Hope thats easy to understand this is the first time i have made one of these that didnt fall apart lol
