Hi Stampers. Today, I have a 3D project for you – an exploding box.  These can be used as a card (lots of places to sign), a photo album (lots of spots to display photos), or a gift box. (Teaser: Tomorrow I have a different one for you).

This exploding box was made using Seaside Spray, Purple Posey and Rococo Rose 12″ x 12″ cardstock.  Did you know we still offer 12″ x 12″ cardstock?  We do!  In all our colors!!

These colors matched the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper beautifully!

Sometime, I make exploding boxes with the pocket that hold things – like this one.  Other times, I make an exploding box with layered panels for each of the inside flaps.

The little cards that fit into the pockets can be used to write notes, sign names or attach photos.  A 1-1/2″ circle punched out and scored in half makes a great little tab.
