Exploding Box Tutorial

Here is a simple fun way to use the exploding box templates. For this demo, I used the scalloped exploding box to make a little album for a family member. 
I started off with the largest base piece and added photos and frames to the four outer squares on the side that will be on the inside of the box.

I then added photos and frames to the medium and small bases. After doing this, I applied adhesive to the middle of the underside of my medium and small bases and centered the medium over the large and the small over the medium.

I decided it needed a little more, so I added some die cuts to the other side of my bases as shown.
To close, simple fold up the sides and slide on the lid:

Endless possibilities for these boxes. Use embellishments of any kind. Even hide a gift in the middle! The funnest part about these boxes, is that when you pull of the lid, the EXPLODE! 
From this:

What can you come up with?

Working on Exploding Box tutorial. That and more coming soon!

Silhouette users, sorry I don't have the tutorial for the exploding boxes up yet. In the middle of getting that ready. I have load of pictures on my camera waiting to be "tutorialized" for other 3d creations so after my sons birthday party this weekend, I'll hopefully have time to put a few more tutorials on too. As always, thank you all for your patience!
Also, if you haven't noticed, I've taken over Snapdragon Snippets and am now doing all business under that name. So if you see designs you like in the Silhouette store from Snapdragon, it's still me. I haven't left Silhouette.  Right now there are two facebook pages you can comment on because of this (Daley Designs & Snapdragon). I haven't yet decided how I want to handle this, whether to shut one down or keep them both. So, for now, they are both available to you. I will check for comments and questions on both pages.
