Tres Jolie Kit Club–Christmas Explosion Box-December 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my first Tres Jolie Kit Club project of December I have my “kit only” (+glues & basic tools!) project – a festive Christmas Explosion box! This month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit comes with a DCWV Explosion Box all ready for you to decorate using the fabulous Graphic 45 “Christmas Time” papers.


This project is rather quick and easy using the kit! Check out my video to see how I put it together!


Easy, right? Now for a few photos and some reminder info from the video!


After I decided which paper I wanted to use on the lid, I held the lid up to a light

and placed the paper over it so I could line up the position of the larger clock. Then I carefully set it down on my desk so I could trace the lid onto the the paper!


The inside of the box was just about as quick and easy as the lid – just more cutting! My pockets were cut 3-1/8” (height) x 3-5/8” (width) then scored 1/4” in from each side. I then used a 2-1/2” circle punch at the tops.

The first layer flaps had the papers cut 3-1/8” x 3-1/8”, the second layer of flaps were cut 3” x 2-7/8”, and I just carefully worked my way around the bottom piece trimming as I tested placement!


The papers for the outer panels of the box were cut 3-1/8” x 3-1/8”, I added some strips of paper for the edge of the lid, then I topped the box off with a chipboard frame and the large flower!
