Tutorial: Exploding Box using the Big Score

donnaatwood3

During our Birthday Week we shared this amazing project from Donna Attwood. She was kind enough to write up some instructions so you can make one too!

Supplies:


Directions:

Step 1: From an A3 piece of card cut 2 strips of card measuring 15” x 5” and score both at 5” intervals along the length using the box lid side of the board. Glue the pieces together in the middle to form a cross shape.

Step 2: From an A3 piece of card cut 2 strips of card measuring 13 ½” x 4 ½” and score both at 4 ½” intervals along the length using the box lid side of the board. Glue together as above.

Step 3: From an A3 piece of card cut 2 strips of card measuring 12” x 4” and score both at 4” intervals along the length using the box lid side of the board. Glue together as above.

Step 4: The above 3 pieces of card will form the 3 outer layers of your exploding box. (NB Leave sticking all above layers together until all of the pieces have been decorated)

Step 5: To make the box lid cut a piece of card 8 1/8” x 8 1/8” and score around each edge at 1 ½” using the box lid side to make the box lid. Fold and glue as necessary.

Step 6: The inside tiered boxes are made using the following sizes of card. NB remember to score one piece using box base and one piece using box lid.

1st layer – 5 ½” x 5 ½” (x2 one for the lid and one for the base). Score at 1” intervals on each piece.
2nd layer – 5” x 5” (x2 one for the lid and one for the base). Score at 1” intervals on each piece.
3rd layer – 4 ½” x 4 ½” (x2 one for the lid and one for the base). Score at 1” intervals on each piece.
4th layer – 4” x 4” (x2 one for the lid and one for the base). Score at 1” intervals on each piece.

Step 7: Once all the layers are cut and scored run them through your chosen embossing folder to create the pattern. I used the Die’sire Embossalicious Rose Vine folder.

Step 8: Glue each box together to form tier.

Step 9: Decorate as desired and then glue all pieces together to form the exploding box
