valentine's day explosion box

A paper-crafted explosion box is a great way to make a gift for someone special. The box is ready for you to embellish to your heart's content!
Step 1

Take the top off the box so that all the layers are laying flat and turn it so the outside is facing up.

Step 2

Trace the flaps onto scrapbook paper, then cut out and adhere onto the outside of the box.

Step 3

Wrap the lid in scrapbook paper as well and embellish with stickers and washi tape.

Step 4

Turn the box back over so the inside flaps are facing you. Measure and cut your paper and cardstock to fit the flaps. You can also cut pockets for the flaps by either cutting one of the pieces in half or diagonally. Adhere the paper to the box using a tape runner.

Step 5

Size and print your photos, or write messages on some of the flaps. Adhere the photos and insert any handwritten messages into the pockets and onto the flaps.

Step 6

Embellish the layers with washi tape and stickers.

Step 7

Fold the flaps in and place the lid on the box.
