Exploding Drop Down Gift Box | Stamping Bella Tutorial

Hi all! Today I'm sharing another Stamping Bella tutorial, a Drop Down Exploding Gift Box featuring Quinn and her Boots. The box is quite large at 6.25" x 4.25" and the three gift boxes in side measure 4" x 2.5", big enough to hold hot chocolate sachets, marshmallows and chocolates. Perfect for a winter gift. 

White card
Patterned paper
Scoring board and bone folder
Hill border die
Scalloped rectangle die

How to:
Cut three pieces of white card measuring 6.5" x 8", one piece of  6.25" x 8.25", and one piece of 9-3/8" x 11.5" 

Score the  6.25" x 8.25" piece at 1" on all four sides. 

Score the 9-3/8" x 11.5" on the 11" side at 2-5/8" x 8-7/8", and on the 9-3/8" side at 2-5/8" and 6.75"

Score all three 6.5" x 8" pieces at 2" on all four sides. 

For all three piece of 6.5"x 8" pieces - 
Cut on the 8" side on each of the score lines up to the intersecting line. Taper the edges of all 4 corner sections. Fold and burnish all the score lines. 

Apply adhesive to the outside of each of the four corners and adhere to the inside of the longer side panels to create a box. 

For each box cut two pieces of paper measuring 1-7/8" x 3-7/8" and two pieces measuring 1-7/8" x 2-3/8". Adhere to the sides of the boxes. 

To make the box lid: take the 6.25" x 8.25" piece of card and cut on the long side up to the intersecting score line. Taper the edges of the four outer sections to make tabs. 

For the decorative panels cut:
7/8" x 6-1/8" (2)
7/8" x 4-1/8" (2)
6-1/8" x 4-1/8" (1)
0.75" x 6" (2)
0.75" x 4" (2)
6" x 4" 

Adhere the paper layers to the card layers and then adhere them to the top and sides of the lid. 

Apply adhesive to the outside of the corner tabs and adhere them to the inside of the longer side panels. 

To create box base:
Take the 9-3/8" x 11.5" piece of card and cut on the score lines to remove the four corners. Fold and burnish the score lines. 

For the outside panels:
6-1/8" x 2.5" (2)
4-1/8" x 2.5" (2)
6" x 2-3/8" (2)
4" x 2-3/8" (2)

Inside panels:
6" x 4" (centre panel)
5-7/8" x 3-7/8" (centre panel)
6-1/8" x 2.5" (2)
4-1/8" x 2.5" (2)

Once all the layers are stuck down, adhere the boxes as shown. Ensure each box is right up to the score line.

Fold up all 3 boxes and pop the lid on to ensure it fits. 
Set the box aside to work on the image. 

Stamp Quinn onto white card and colour using your preferred medium. 

Fussy cut the outline using a precision scissors. 

Assemble a panel for the front of the box and adhere down using 3D foam tape/dots.

Stamp the sentiment and cut out using a scalloped die. 

Adhere the sentiment and Quinn to the front panel using more 3D foam tape/dots. 
Embellish as desired. 

To make the acetate lids for the boxes inside:
Cut three pieces of acetate measuring 6" x 4.5" and score on all four sides at 1"

Cut on the score lines to remove the four corners. Cut a slight wedge from each side of the four outer tabs. Fold the score lines gently. 

Push the acetate lid into the box - it will be a snug fit so that it stays in place. 

Decorate the outer edges of the boxes.
