**Exploding Box Class** HERE!

Post by ScrapGoo » Sun Aug 24, 2008 3:03 pm

Hey fabulous ladies!!

Are you ready to make an awesome project??

First I want to make sure you have gathered up your supplies:

Materials:
  • 1 12”x12” piece of heavy/sturdy patterned paper OR cardstock. You want this to be strong, as it is the outside of your box. Double sided is lovely but single sided works as long as you don’t mind the inside border being white.
  • 1 piece of 12” x 12” heavy patterned paper or cardstock for your cover. Again, make sure it is sturdy. 
  • 2 pieces of 12”x12” coordinating cardstock for the inside layers
  • Coordinating papers or scraps to decorate the inside pages (I recommend 5-6 additional patterns)
  • Embellishments and photos for your box
  • Paper trimmer
  • Adhesive
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Bone folder or other scoring tool

 Choose your papers first. It will be helpful to know which papers you want to use for your outer layer, middle layer, inner layer, and cover so there is no confusion when it comes to cutting. I chose papers from the Basic Grey “Sultry” line.  The finished box is a four inch cube.  These are the papers I will be using:  Image
So set aside your one patterned paper for the outside and the two inner pages (I used the solid cardstock sheets)

 Outer Layer: Now, clear your surface except for your outer layer paper, a pencil, and a ruler. Softly mark your paper like a tic tac toe board at 4” marks. You should have two lines running horizontally and two lines running vertically.
