Exploding 4th Of July! By Ms. Pebbles

Hello everyone! :)
For my 4th of July project, I thought to myself, since the fireworks will be exploding, why not make a 4th of July Exploding Box! Now I know that the technical name/use for these are boxes BUT, to me these can be cards, minis and boxes! They come in many different shapes and I decided to go with the pyramid shape!

I used our Echo Park 4th Of July paper kit for 2 of the layers of the box as well as the lid. The title and embellishments on the outside also came in the kit!

Here's the view when it's completely exploded! The inner most layer has a circle with a star and some stripes in the middle that I cut from one of the papers in the kit. I used my eCraft Purpleberry machine to cut the white triangles. Here's where I think the possibility of mini can start. Instead of the circle, you can adhere a photo or for a card, you can put a sentiment there. Or quite possibly photos and embellishments on all tabs! :) Just some ideas! Here's some more views.

 On this layer, I used all sticker embellishments that comes in the kit.

I used the same sticker embellishments on this layer as well and some more triangles that I cut out using my eCraft. The possibilities are endless using this kit, I love it! I also have plenty of paper left to do a couple of layouts as well as cards! Thanks for looking everyone and have a safe and Happy 4th of July!!! :)


  1. Very clever, Pebbles--and great use of the papers and stickers in the kit! These would be terrific "place cards" and favors at a July gathering...could put a small treat inside.

  2. So so clever. I just love this. :)

  3. Pebbles I love your exploding box. I've always wanted to make one and never got around to it. You have given me inspiration to try one. I love the star shape a lot. Awesome!!
    Hugs, Fran
