Explosion Box

I love the explosion boxes, they are so quick and easy to make.  And of course these days we have to have a flower on top.

stamp set:  Seasons of Joy
card:  Old olive, very vanilla, jolly holiday DSP, cherry cobler
ink:  Cherry cobler
accessories:  brad, scallop punch, boho blossom punch

More quick instructions:
Card 7 1/2" square,   scored 2 1/2" and 5"
DSP (for lid)  4 1/2" square,  scored 7/8" on all sides
Punch cherry cobler with scallop punch and then 3 of dsp.  Punch cherry cobler boho blossom punch to use one of the small flowers for the middle.
Scrunch all scallops except for the cherry cobler which will be your base.  Unscrunch scallops placing on top of cherry cobler with boho blossom.  Prick hole through (with mat pack) and insert brad.  Put aside.
Lid:  fold all score lines cutting into score lines, to make lid.  Place sticky on the four tabs and stick down.
Bottom:  fold on all score lines using valley folds on corners so they go inside the box, place your lid on and stick your flower down.
Finished.  Any problems making these, just let me know.  Still trying to get use to blogging so one day I will include photos of proceedures.
