"Exploding" birthday gift box

I created an Explosion box to hold a gift for a birthday.
This is how the box looks after cutting and decorating.

In order to get your box made, take a 12x12 piece of cardstock (I used a page that had brown shimmery-patterned rectangles) from the DCWV The Natural stack Measure 4" in from each corner and 4" up. Each corner should have a 4" square cut out. Then score and fold your corners upright. This will be your base. See instructions below. 

I used another piece from the same stack to make the top. The top is made using a piece cut at 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" with cut marks 1" in from each corner. It should fit nicely over the box once you cut, score, fold and glue the corners in place. Below is the video that goes over instructions for this box.

I decorated my box with K&Company die cuts with a Birthday theme called "Confetti."

My gift was a store-bought jar of a hair product to which I adhered some home-made labels with a vintage graphic I found on the internet.
The small orange flowers on the box top and the jar were cut from Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Floral Doily Motifs" using the two small inner circles dies.

So there you have your finished product. Imagine the possibilities for other occasions, and how surprised and happy the recipient will be to receive this lovely and thoughtful gift.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope it inspires you to create your own wonderful projects.
