These mini scrapbooks really took us by surprise when we opened them as we didn't quite expect them to expand the way they did. These are also known as Squash Books and Amazing Folding Albums. Whatever you call them, they make great mini scrapbook gifts, as they can easily be customized to fit any occasion or season. You can make these explosion books in various sizes. I am giving you directions here for two sizes.

Begin by choosing 4 double sided cardstock weight papers. The first paper (the one that will be the outside of the box, and the base layer of the photos) should be 12 inches by 12 inches. You will need to score the paper 4 inches in from all 4 sides, and cut out the corners (4×4 squares). The next paper trim to 11×11, and score the sides at 3 3/4 inches. Cut out the corners. The third paper needs to be trimmed to 10×10.

This will leave you with 3 perfectly layered pieces for your box. These layers can be embellished and decorated in many ways. When you have them all decorated, adhere the centers.

Thanks for stopping by! Here is a baby boy explosion box. I used three different colors of solid cardstock for the bottom part of the box. The design paper is DCWV Baby Boy Stack. I added some satin ribbon bows to the lid and on the inside of the box I used an action wobble to give it a bit of whimsey. These boxes are great for lots of different occasions like birthdays, bridal shower, girls night out, etc. Explosion Boxes: A Life As Lou Online Class : Life as Lou. Explosion Box - Happy Birthday!
