Krafty Tips & Tuts - Explosion box with Sandy Toes!

Hey Krafty fans!

Krafty Girl Stephanie with you today :-) As I promised during the June release week, here's my Explosion Box tutorial featuring the Sandy Toes set by Emilie Goulet. You can find multiple versions on the Web, but I thought this one would be perfect to gather all the pictures from a recent trip. Now, it may seem like a lot of papers, but trust me, once you'll be done with the frame, everything else is just embellishment!

Here's how to create it:

For the box:

Using 3 sheets of  12"x12" cardstock, do the next steps.

Cardstock A – Score at 4" on each side. Cut all four corners, like this:

Cardstock B – Cut at 11¼"x11¼". Score at 3¾" on each side. Cut all four corners.
Cardstock C – Cut at 10½"x10½". Score at 3½" on each side. Cut all four corners.

Shape every layer and add adhesive in the center of each one, so that they're all piled together, from the biggest to the smallest.

And for the cover:
Cut a piece of cardstock to 61/8"x61/8". Score each side at 1" and cut along the vertical line, as shown on the sketch below. Put some adhesive on the exterior part of the corners and shape the cover. Now, all you have to do is decorate everything with embellishments and pictures (Fujifilm Instax, anyone?!), add a big bow on top of it and voilĂ !

The result:
