I'm very excited to be introducing the first Aunty Vera project from our new team member Tina. It's just exploding with loveliness!!! Please make Tina feel welcome and say hello in the comments below :)
Hi everyone! I am excited to share my first project as a Creative Team Member for Aunty Vera Scrap And Craft for 2018, using the February Kit, Love & Art.
This kit is beautiful with lots of different shades of pink.
For my first project, I have a Valentine's Explosion Box. I hope I inspire you to make one because it was a lot of fun.
Here is the finished Box.
I measured everything in inches. For the construction of the Explosion Box, I used black cardstock 240gsm.( However, for the purpose of this tutorial I used pink cardstock to make it easier to view).
To create the box use 12" x 12" black cardstock. Score at 4", rotate and score at 4" again repeat twice. It should look like the image below.
Next cut off the four outer squares and fold along score lines.
For the inner base, cut 6" x 6" square, score at 1 1/8 " rotate score again rotate and repeat twice. Cut as shown in the image below.
To create lid cut a 7 1/8 " x 7 1/8 " square, score at 1 4/8 "on all 4 sides. Snip the outer squares on one side just like the inner base.
I used the papers from the collection to decorate the lid, box and inner base. Note: I like to show a border so I cut all my patterned pieces slightly smaller than the black cardstock.
Inside of box
Glue the flaps to the inside of lid and do the same to the inner base. Glue the inner base to the inside bottom of the box. See Picture below.
Finally I decorated the box with some ribbon I had in my collection and one of the beautiful heart charms that came with the kit, which I glued onto two small paper hearts. I hope you enjoyed my first project, I know I will enjoy ringing the bell when hubby is home.It was a lot of fun to create and share with all of you.
