Online Crop To Start with a Bang!

An Explosion Box!  Scrapbook Message Board's Final Crop of 2015 will start off with a bang - a tutorial of how to create the explosion box shown below.  Members can request a pdf of the tutorial.  Membership is free, so join in the fun now!  Fun Challenge prizes all week!

Top - Mine is an advent calendar based on the Names of Jesus.  I added some extra pieces to the standard explosion box to accommodate my needs of 25 spaces.

 Remove the lid.  Since this box is nearly 10 years old, it no longer just falls open since I store it in a closed position.  In another week, it will fall open easier.

 View after removing inner layer box lid - four more flaps open

 Third interior box lid removed - lid inside is a day - just like the others and there are four more flaps.  The small box inside came loose, but will is easy to restick.  I used some inexpensive adhesive but most has held.  I will use glue to fix anything that is loose this year.

Supply list - for the box only, not embellishments:  8 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock, adhesive, method of scoring, scissors.  :)  See you tonight!
