TUESDAY TUTORIAL - How To Create An Exploding Christening Card & Box


Sue M was so right when she commented that" modern technology can be so infuriating"!

My sister-in-law asked me to make a christening card, their grandson, my great nephew, is being christened this Sunday and I've made, well at least 85% of it and will finish the remainder later today.  I will show a photo when it's completed

The video is showing you the basic on how to make the exploding card and box but, please note, that I have remade the lid slightly smaller than I mentioned on the video and the sides of the box now fit more snugly

So instead of the lid being a tad over 7" it's now a tad under the 7" approximately 615/16"

It really is so easy to make and assemble, why not try it yourself?

I hope you enjoy the video

Until tomorrow....
