And it's finally here.... and almost done! I'm planning on adding pictures to the box later today after I pick them up... but for now you get to see the finished project before decoration.
The Explosion Box is a brand new "blank" at Paper Addictions. With this kit you will receive all the white cardstock already cut and pre-scored to make this box which includes 1 box top, 1 small pocket insert (w/4 pockets), 1 large pocket inser (w/4 pockets), 1 box bottom and a roll of double sided tape to put it all together. The finished box measures 4.25" x 4.25"
When you take the top of the box off the bottom folds out to reveal the 8 pockets. I plan on adding photos to the pocket inserts that I cut out of matching cardstock. The pockets measure 4" tall and about 3.25" - 3.75" wide.
I used designer paper from the Scenic Route Sonoma line for this project. We sell the lighter colored paper in a bundle and we also sell it individually. I matched this paper up with Papertreyinks's artichoke and berry sorbet cardstock and ribbons.
The striped paper on the outside of the box is Sierra Place from Scenic Route - it's not included in the light paper bundle, but matches both paper bundles perfectly. This box is roomy enough to fit almost a whole bag of candy inside. I filled it up with some of our extra Halloween candy and it pretty much emptied out our bowl. I plan on getting some prettier chocolates to put in the box later when we give it as a gift.
So what do you think?? Personally I love it! It's really, really easy to make and once you have the original and it's measurements you could easily use it to make more with your own paper since it uses 12x12 paper for all the layers! These are now available in the store HERE. They will be on sale until Saturday so don't wait! Don't forget we also have all of our Basic Grey 6x6 pads on sale for only $5.00/pad which is $1.00 off the normal price.
Thanks for looking and leave a comment with your thoughts on the explosion box.
