This box is another piece that I made as a gift. It was meant as a thank you card of sorts. The closed box with the lid on measures just over 4 inches square. When you remove the lid, the inside, graduated flaps fall open, creating the “explosion.” I decorated each of the flaps individually with a small trinket or design. On the inside of the lid I crafted a pocket to hold a short note of thanks to the recipient.
This box is surprisingly sturdy. The sides and lid are made from chipboard so they don’t bend. I love basic designs like this because they offer endless options for decoration. I have done variations in color for the box base as well.
