Take white cardstock 12 x 12, score at 4 inch and 8 inch both vertically and horizontally. Cut and remove the corner squares so that the final shape resembles a ‘plus’ sign .Fold on all the score lines to make the base of the explosion box.
For creating pockets take two 4 ½ x 4 ½ white cardstock, cut diagonally creating a triangle , score at ½ inch both vertically and horizontally , apply double sided tape on ½ inch scored area. Overlap two triangles from the centre and attach on to the two opposite flaps of explosion box base for creating pockets.
 Make the lid with 6- ¼ x 6- ¼ inch white cardstock by scoring at 1 inch from all the four sides. For the stand of explosion box take one piece of 5 x 5 and four pieces of 5 x 1 chipboard, attach 1 inch piece on all the four sides of 5 x 5 chipboard creating a box and cover with cardstock.
Mat the base, stand and lid of explosion box first with Green Cardstock and then with Pattern paper from Sweet Peony Collection. (Optional distress the edges of the green cardstock and pattern paper).
