I tried to think of something different to show you guys this DIY Saturday. So here is how to make a DIY Exploding Box like the one you see in the photo above! It’s cute and a perfect gift idea for a special someone.
- 20 pictures
- Card stock paper
- Glue stick
- Scotch Tape
Step One –
Cut 25 squares out of the card stock paper. I did 5 for each color.
The size should be about this:
Step Two –
Put five squares together as shown in the picture and tape the sides together.
Step Three –
You will glue the middle squares to each other, leaving the four end squares to kinda flop around. NOTE: the tape side should be the side you are gluing down.
Step Four – (the most tedious)
Cut the access paper off the sides of the squares. When putting the squares together, they all have to be even with each other.
Step Five –
There are 20 squares total. Glue all 20 of your pictures on each square.
Step Six –
Making the lid. Cut out a square the size of the original squares. Cut out rectangles that match the sides of each square like shown in the picture.
Step Seven –
Tape the corners together.
Step Eight –
Your DIY exploding box! When the person you are giving this to takes off the lid, all the pictures will collapse out 🙂
