    Default Explosion Box(Pics)Updated with measurements

    Well I got some of my mojo back!!! It's not scrapbook lo's but at least I'm using some of my stockpile of supplies!!!
    Ever since I made my first explosion box months ago I wanted to make it bigger I just never sat down and figured out the measurements until a few days ago. I really like the turn out.

    two that I've made, notice I made the one of the left with a shorter lid, I like that better too
    Photobucket
    And a comparision in size

    I have no idea why two pictures are huge and the other resized, I resized them all, crazy photobucket

    I love them! I so need to try and make one, but I just don't think I am coordinated enough! You did a great job!

    Pics look fine on this end.

    Love the boxes. I like the short lid better, too. The paisley paper is really pretty. Do you have a template that you use? Is there a link? I would love to scraplift this idea...

    This is the site I used the first time I ever made one
    http://glitteradventure.blogspot.com...box-class.html
    For layers~cut to...
    leave bottom layer as 12x12 paper
    2nd layer- cut at 11 5/8 x 11 5/8
    3rd layer- 11 1/4 x 11 1/4
    4th layer- 10 7/8 x 10 7/8
    5th layer- 10 1/2 x 10 1/2
    if you want more layers just go down 3/8 of an inch for each layer

    Score each layer
    bottom layer- 4 inches in from the sides
    2nd layer- 3 7/8 inches
    3rd layer- 3 3/4 inches
    4th layer- 3 5/8 inches
    5th layer- 3 1/2 inches
    if you have more layers just go down 1/8 of an inch for each layer

    for the lid
    cut out at 8x8, score folds- in the middle between 1 7/8 & 2 inches(4 9/10ths in centimeters) on each side. Does that make sense? The lid should have been scored 2 inches in on each side because the box bottom size is 4x4inches but a 4x4 lid was just too snug.

    to make the lid shorter I had to cut it down after I scored it, I cut each side down 1/2 an inch, so that makes it 7x7 but I haven't gone back to remeasure what I would have to score it at, I think I would have to score it at 3 6/10ths in centimeters but I haven't gone back and done it yet.
