Here are the instructions, good luck and let me know if you have any questions!!!
Exposion Box Instructions:
Start with 8 1/2 x 11 C.S. (SU SHimmery White works great)
Cut 7 1/2 x 7 1/2
Score at 2 1/2 all around 4 sides of paper (Your paper will look like a tic-tac-toe sheet)
Score each corner box from inside corner to outside corner (Do all 4 corner boxes only)
Use decorate scissors (you can use regular, but the decorate ones are prettier) You are going to be cutting the 4 corner boxes in half taking off the sharp corners....so cut from bottom right to top left on each corner box. (When are are done your paper will look like an octagon -stop sign shape)
Stamp with personal in the middle, flip over and stamp with your greeting stamp in middle on back, from that point you can decorate however you want.
Fold box at scored lines in fold inward to make a box
Cut with any color paper 3 7/8
Score around all sides at 5/8"
Cut edges at scored line and fold edges inward to make a lid.
Use Box tape to put on inside corners of lid....this will hold your lid the best.
