Explosion Box Directions

Box Bottom: Take a 6x6 piece of card stock and score every 2 inches in both directions. The score lines will create 9 squares on your card stock. Cut off each corner diagonally to make an 8 sided figure. Fold along each score line and tuck the corners in to create your box (you can score the corners ahead of time by going out from each corner of the center square to the corners of the larger square before cutting them off). Stamp your box. The bottom of the box will contain greetings and goodies.

Box Lid: Take a 4x4 piece of card stock and score just shy of 1 inch on all sides and fold. You will have 4 little boxes in each corner. Cut along just one of the score lines until you reach the next score line on each corner. Now you will have flaps that can fold inside and hold your lid together. Use Sticky Strip to ensure the lid stays together. If you are going to stamp on the lid, be sure to do this before assembly.

Finish your box by securing with ribbon.

Now you have a fun 2x2 box that can be a gift box and card in one.
