Flower Center Explosion Box

Here is another version of the surprising explosion box! This one opens up to reveal a large flower with multiple centers. Once again this idea comes from the show called "The Scrapbook Lounge" on Craft TV and the designer of the original project is Judi Watanabe of JudiKins . It is called "Surprise Box with Flair" and here is the LINK to the episode.

I have designed this file using both Plantin Schoolbook (for Expression owners) and George (for baby bug owners). I try to do my files for both whenever possible so that many people will be able to use and enjoy them.

Here is a photo of all of the pieces you will cut - they are scored and have had the adhesive added so they are ready to assemble.

Once again there are both corner and side flower flaps - you should follow the steps in the previous post for the assembly of the outer flower (linked HERE)

Once the outer ring is completed you can add the inner flowers, first one

Then two

Then three for a full inner flower!

Carefully fold up the flower center and the sides

and slip on the lid
