All the Pretty Ponies Exploding Box

Believe it or not, this is the first time I have made an exploding box card, and I happily spent my Sunday afternoon working on it. My inspiration came from one I saw Cary Buckham make that was just awesome, and I used many of the same elements on mine. The whole idea is that we have a carousel horse stamp, we've got to use it to make a carousel, right? And an exploding box is so perfect to display it.

  • The box template is fairly easy to make. You take 12" x 12" cardstock and score it at 4" and 8" both directions. You cut out the 4" squares in each corner and fold up the flaps in the center of each side. 
  • To make the lid, on a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock score at 1", 2", 6 1/4" and 7 1/4", then turn it 90 degrees and do the same. Cut away everything outside of the those score lines and making a small cut on each side up to the second score line.
  • Then add your DSP (mines from Falling in Love) to all the sides over top of all your mattes.
So much fun!! You've got to try it. I'm going to be using this for my next Tea and 3D class on March 23, so save that date and register before Tuesday or Wednesday, March 21 or 22 by clicking here.

If you come to the class, there will be measurements, and supply lists there, as well as step-by-step instructions! Hope to see you if you are in the area!
