12 Days of Christmas Day 12 Explosion Box!

Today I'm making an Explosion Box, this is the first time I've made one and I'm pleased with the result.

There are two colour combos to choose from!

My explosion box is not traditional as only two sides flap open when lid is taken off, the reason for this was I wanted a background for my house.

I've built the boxes in the same way but used two different Designer Series Papers from the same collection.

All my product is based around the Festive Farmhouse Suite, I love this suite and I've made lot's of cards and projects with it this year

I've made a video to explain how I made it.  It's longer than normal as this is a more detailed project.


I found it a bit tricky to fit my lid onto my finished box, here's a tip to help.  Before you decorate your box just make a couple of the sides of the box a tiny bit smaller with some scissors, just along a couple of edges and then your lid should fit better.  My first box fitted fine but the second one was a bit too snug!

Some of my measurements

4 pieces of 7 x 3 1/2"  (score at 31/2")  Box Sides
Lid 4 1/2 X 4 1/2 (score at 1/4" all round)
DSP x 5   3 1/4 x 3 /1/4  Side and top of box

Ink.Stamp.Share October Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to this month's Ink.Stamp.Share blog hop.  You may be starting your hopping here or you may have joined from Rebecca's post, what a great project!
This month our theme is Tic-tac-toe  which is noughts and crosses in the UK!

We have to choose three boxes going in a row and then make our card/project with these as our inspiration.  

I'm going straight across the top Christmas, Embossing and Circle.

I pondered if it needed a sentiment on the front, but decided against.  You could easily add a Merry Christmas to this card.

I've used dry embossing on my card's but you could of used heat embossing also.

I've made a quick You Tube video

Don't forget to hop along to the next blog!

Sour Cream Container Christmas Table

Welcome to Day 11 of my 12 days of Christmas.  Sorry if you've been on the look out for Day 11, I've been having some editing issues with my laptop!

Today we are making really quick Sour Cream Cartons for your Christmas table.  Fill with after dinner mints or chocolate, or a small gift.  These could also be used as advent calendars.

I've used a Granny Apple Green and Basic Black colour combo but you can change this up to match your colour scheme.  If you want an even quicker carton you can use soem Designer Series Paper, there's some lovely Christmas pattern this year at Stampin' Up!

I've made a quick You Tube video below
