Amazing EXPLODING Confetti Box Tutorial

Positivelypapercraft exploding confetti box


Hi Everyone!
Welcome to my Blog & thank you for paying me a visit! Today i have the most amazing & really cool exploding box for you. When i say 'exploding' i really mean it! It will definitely give the recipient a very big surprise when they take the lid off!  The ideas is that you fill the box with confetti, sequins & even small sweets if you like. When the lid is taken off the box pops right up & all the contents jump all over the place! I love it.

I came across a few of these boxes on youtube but the tutorial i watched was from someone called 'The Creative Guy' I have linked his video in my Youtube description. I did not follow his tutorial (sizes etc) I just made up my own sizes & made my box from layered card rather than cardboard. It really is super simple to make & all you need is Card, paper, 4 small elastic bands and confetti, sequins etc.

I made my box in a Valentines theme but of course you can make yours anyway you like. It would be fantastic for a kids party or just a regular Birthday etc. I really think you will love this box if you give it a try.

You can find all the measurements below in metric & imperial. At the end of this post i will also put the link to my Youtube Tutorial. I explain step by step how to make this box.

MEASUREMENTS

THE SIDES OF THE BOX MEASURE 3 X 3" I LAYERED 4 PIECES OF CARD TOGETHER TO MAKE ONE SIDE. IF YOU DO THIS YOU WILL NEED 18 PIECES OF 3 X 3" 16 PIECES FOR THE SIDES & 2 PIECES FOR THE BOX BASE.
OR  7.6 CM X 7.6 CM 

8 PIECES OF PATTERNED PAPER FOR THE INSIDE & OUTSIDE OF THE BOX MEASURING 2 7/8" X 2 7/8" 
OR  7.3 CM X 7.3 CM 

CARD FOR THE LID MEASURES 7 1/8" X 7 1/8"
SCORE ALL 4 SIDES @ 1" & 2" 

OR 18.1 CM X 18.1 CM 
SCORE ALL 4 SIDES @ 2.5 CM & 5 CM 

I will be back again on Friday with another tutorial. I can tell you that it will be something for the Guys!!

Bye for now
