New Baby Exploding Box

I have used  white 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 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 used First Edition It's a girl patterned papers to decorate the box. I added various die cuts on the first layer and then personalised details on the top layer. I die cut the details using a die from a nesting from The Works. I made the shoes using elements cut with a Joy die. I added flat backed gems to embellish the box and added lace and ribbon around the lid.
