Explosion Box

Hello everybody! TGIF right!? 
I got a lot more crafty time in this week than normal and I have to say, it feels GREAT!!! Have you guys ever tried doing an explosion box? If you haven't, you MUST! They are so much fun! 
Here is mine closed with the lid on.  

This is how it looks when you open it.  I have designated three boxes for photos, three for die cuts, and two for journaling. I know you can barely see it, but the journaling spot on the upper left hand corner says "Happiness is..." and it's from Pink By Design's Country Living set. I'm still undecided on what will be going on the center, but I'll make sure to post a pic later on! :) 
I know I've used  this sun a million and one times, but it's my favorite along with my favorite Peachy Keen face! The sun is from Doodlecharms cartridge and the face is from the Happy Lashes assortment! The sentiment is from PBD's Winter Fun
The wheelbarrow is from Pooh and Friends cartridge. The sentiment is also from PBD's Country Living. The face on the heart is from Peachy Keen's Princess Face assortment.  
 "Just a Note" is from Pink by Design's Rock On set.  I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. 
I'm linking this up to:

Thank you so much for looking!

This is great! I love the images and stamps you chose. Can you let me know where you found instructions for this?? I found a couple online but none that keep the entire square of paper - they cut out the corners. I love how this style gives you more decorating opportunities. :)

So sorry for not replying sooner!!

I actually watched a video for the instructions BUT SKIPPED cutting the corners out.
^ this is the video I watched for sizes/concept.

Instead of cutting the corners out, I just pushed the paper inward and flattened it with a bone folder.
This is how it looked.

I just did that with all three sheets of paper.

I really hope you can see the links! I've never tried sharing them on a comment LOL

Oooops! I did make cuts! Just one on each side so it could fold! (I was looking at the candy holder I made and got confused lol)
