Heart Explosion Box!
Hello Simple Stories friends! Anya here today and I would like to share an explosion box with you that I created using the beautiful “Heart” collection. Even though the main theme for this line is about memories of people we lost, it doesn't mean we can't use it for other projects as well.
To create this box I used a scoring board and some white cardstock. My box measures 3” from all sides and the lid is 1” tall. In order for the lid to fit the box nicely, you need to make it about 1/16” larger then the size of the box. After creating the basic shape of the box, I like to cover all the panels with patterned paper, leaving a thin white border.
My favorite part is to decorate all the panels with little pieces and stickers. The sides don't have to be very similar in design - the basic idea here is to distribute the colors evenly among them. By adding some of the pieces to panels with pop dots, you will create dimension, which always makes this type of project more interesting.
