Wedding cake exploding box

I made a an exploding box with white card. Firstly I have cut a piece of white card 28.5cm x 28.5cm

I scored the card at 9.5cm and 19cm on all sides. Resulting in 9 squares measuring 9.5cm by 9.5cm. I then cut the corner square off each side leaving you with 4 squares in a + shape.

I matt and layered the panels with lilac and then white card. I made the wedding cake using nesting die cut circles and strips of card. I decorated the cake with lace, ribbon and flowers. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut them with a die from a set from "The Works" and added them to the panels of the box.

I have made a lid for the box using white card. I have cut a piece of white card in a square measuring 14cmx14cm then scored at 2cm  on all sides. I cut a small slit in the corner and then cut a small notch before sticking the corners together with PVA glue. I then attached lilac card on all sides, a die cut circle with a LOVE die cut. This was cut with another die from "The Works". I completed this with flowers from my local artificial floral supplies.
