I have used cream card to make the exploding box layers. The first layer is 28.5cm by 28.5cm. I scored the card at 9.5cm and 19cm on both sides resulting in 9 squares. Cut the corner off each side leaving a +.
I used the same technique for the next layer. This layer is 24cm by 24cm. I scored this layer at 8cm and 16cm on both sides. I cut the corner off each side leaving a +
I did exactly the same for the next layer measuring 18cmx18cm. I scored at 6cm and 12cm on both sides making 9 squares measuring 6x6cm. I cut the corners off again.
I made the lid using a 14cmx14cm piece of card. I scored each side at 2cm. I cut a slit in each corner of the box and stuck them together with P.V.A.
I printed personalised sentiments and wedding venue and used die cuts. I used colours that were the wedding colour scheme.
For embellishing I used the following:
Xcut -Corner Punch, Memories, I Love You, With love
Fiskars - heart punch
Presscut - Ovals
The Works - Circles, Shape on side of box, Love
Tonic - Sent from the heart, Just for you
I used ribbon and lace to embellish the box and added a teddy with hot glue.
