Finished Exploding Box #1

Well, I finished my test box! I also cut all of the squares for 10 boxes and 10 lids. Whew! I ordered wallet size prints ans am having to trim them to fit. I think that's the most time consuming part for me. I am sooo glad I have a paper cutter because I am no good with scissors! Anyway, here is the finished product!

I know there are lots of others making them... I can't wait to see yours, too!

Very pretty Carrie, I am working on mine now, hopefully will have pics to post later, I didn't get pics printed to put in yet, I was going to get 4x6, will they be too big?

Yeah, Sarah, 4X6 will be too big. I printed mine as "wallets" at Sams - 17 cents for 2 wallets

the wallets are about the size of my siggy pic and I have to trim the edges

Yeah, I'm so bad with measurements, I realized the 4x6 would be way too big, I made a test box, not sure if I like it or not, I'll probably post pics tommorow, maybe I'll get some prints after work!
