2 strips 9cm x 27cm outer
2 strips 8cm x 24cm Middle
the third A4 card put the card landscape and cut 2 strips off the end 7cm these two strips will measure 21cm x 7cm inner the left over piece trim to 15.5cm x 15.5 cm this is your lid
and finally the 2 inner pieces and score them equally 7cm as per diagram
The flaps should all fold up ready for the lid.
fold each score line in and the corner diagonal fold should fold flat against the inside edge use a wet glue and paper clips to hold position until dry.
Now your box is ready to be embellished
A pretty Little exploding Box for a 65th Birthday
I have used photos of the birthday girls children and grandchildren with a few other embelishments.
Box Dimension 9cm x 9cm assorted lilac and mauve colours this box hs been made from A4 card
I was asked to make this card for a friends nephew and the greeting is a private joke in the family as he was a little terror and destroyed everything in his path (Cousins Drumkits etc)
I embossed the greeting with the printer and used a Rob Adamms CD for the Teddy and Big shot for the 30s
