Exploding Box

This is the fourth project I have posted this evening!!


Kanban Crafts white 12 inch x 12 inch card
Kanban Crafts True Red Card
 Kanban Crafts London Icons On Parade Topper Sheet 900179
Kanban Crafts Keep Calm Signs Topper Sheet 900177
Kanban Crafts London Icons Transport Topper Sheet 900176

I scored the 12 inch square into three rows and columns of equal size. 
This makes each segment 3 inches by 3 inches.
Score a diagonal line on each square at each corner. 
I think it can be seen in the photographs how to do this.

Made the lid out of red card and decorated
with various toppers. 


I would like to enter this into the following challenges: 

Moving Along With The Times

 where the theme is 

Anything But A Card


Mishelflo's Monthly Challenge  

where  the theme is

  11. Hi Vee
    this is stunning, so much work, very cleverly put together.

  12. Vee, Love your little box and the theme. It's amazing you made the bottom from a single sheet of paper, such an interesting technique. I will have to give that one a try. I also love those little guys you put inside the box, makes the whole thing look very British, which I am sure was your intent.
