Belinda Basson DT - Exploding Box

 Hello friends

My project this month for the Belinda Basson (Stamperia) Design Team is An Exploding Box.

I used Stamperia Lady Vagabond papers, moulds, paints and chipboard to create the box and all of the items are listed at the end of this post.
I wanted the box to hold quite a lot in the middle part, so I made it larger than the standard 4" x 4" sized box.
To make the base I used black cardstock that is 16" x 16" square, the centrepiece is 4" square and the sides each measure 6" x 4".  You would normally cut away the 'side' pieces but I wanted the box to be quite sturdy, so I simply cut away the corners so that it would fold in properly.

I covered each of the outside and inside pieces with Lady Vagabond papers.
Each of the inside sections contains a different scene.
Top left:  I added some chipboard pieces, mounted onto black cardstock.
Bottom left: The frame is made with a Stamperia mould and painted.  The Sir Vagabond chipboard pieces are mounted onto watercolour paper.
Centre: I created a bookcase from cardstock and mounted books that I fussy cut  from the Lady Vagabond 8" x 8" cardstock.
Right:  I mounted the pieces using chipboard pieces from the Lady Vagabond chipboard set.
The centrepiece for the box is made from Stamperia moulds, using resin and painted with Stamperia paints to create a rust effect.
I created the top, in black card, just slightly larger than the base at 4.1/8" square and covered it with Lady Vagabond papers.
The cogs on the top were created using a Lady Vagabond mould and painted with Stamperia paints.
And finally, here is a view of all four sides of the box.

I have never made one of these boxes before but I enjoyed this one and will definitely be making more!

Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again soon.
