Happy Birthday To My Niece!

Today my niece, Aubri is 7 years old! She is such a sweetie and is planning to have a Puppy Party with her friends. I made this explosion box for her so that she can put pictures of her party inside. There are 3 layers inside this box so she has room for 20 pictures. The dog in the center of the box is from the Paper Pups Cricut Cart. I used a piece of fine floral wire to make the butter fly look like it was it flight.
Explosion Box Directions:
Box has 3 layers and uses 3 sheets of cardstock.
Bottom layer is 12x12, 2nd Layer 11.75x11.75, 3rd layer is 11.5x11.5
Score all 3 papers at 4 inches on al 4 sides
Fold on score lines
Cut out every corner square (Save and use on inside for mats)
Use corner rounder and round all edges
glue only center squares and leave all the sides unglued so they lift up
Paper cut 7 1/8 x 7 1/8 inches
score at 1.5 inches on all sides
Cut slit on score lines just on 2 sides
