Baby boy exploding box

This is my project for my DT post at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper

I have made an exploding box simply using a pencil, ruler, bone folder and PVA glue.

I have covered all panels inside and outside with various patterned paper, Paper from a Forever Friends 6x6in paper pad and Anna Marie paper.

I have cut a number of dies and printed personalised sentiments and die cut them.

For more detailed information see my tutorials
