How to Make an Exploding Book - JOYFUL DAISY. Scroll to bottom for measurements to make mini Exploding Book:) Making an exploding book is such an easy yet impressive project and can be made to suit any theme from holidays to vacations to hobbies, pets, birthdays, and more! I have been making them for years and I still get questions on how to put them together so I thought I would post the instructions and some past projects to inspire you to make your own exploding book!
But beware, they are addictive! 3 pieces of 12″*12″ cardstock paper (double sided paper looks nice with this project) 2 pieces of 6 1/2″*6 1/2″ chipboard (you can cut this from cereal boxes if you do not have chipboard and want to recycle!) 2 pieces of 8″*8″ scrapbook paper for your cover 2 pieces of 20″ ribbon OPTIONAL- decorative papers, stickers, embellishments, and pictures to customize your exploding book TOOLS- adhesive (glue stick or tape runner) scissors and/or paper trimmer STEP 1: I hope you can see the three folds on this paper.
