Octagonal Exploding Box


In conjunction with the UK Scrappers Forum, here are the template files for an octagonal exploding box designed by Voodoo Vixen. I've included files for the base, lid and a file containing the base and lid together, so that when you resize the base, the lid will always remain a perfect fit.

There are 3 files , so I have put them into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open the zip file in the usual way, and drag the templates out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save them.

There are 3 versions of each template:
  • A printable version (PNG files) that you can import into a program like Word, then resize, print, cut out and use like any other paper template (these are NOT Word files, so don't use File/Open in Word! Use Insert/Picture to bring them into a Word document).
  • An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot program and then cut out on your Cricut.
  • A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Simply right click on the appropriate button below, and choose "save link..." or "save target..." and save your template!

Stunning box and just different enough from the square exploding boxes! This is so great. My mom's birthday is in October and her favorite flower is the Chrysanthemum - which this box reminds me of! Instead of pix, I think I'll have all her kids, grands & greats write something. Beautiful! and THANKS!

Hi Dan,
I just discovered your very helpful blog. Thanks.
A question about this exploding box. Is it set for a 12 x 12 mat, or can it be done on a 6 x 12 mat?
Thanks, Mary

I just found the cutest little explosion box bird house in an octagon and google Octogonal explosion box. I was so excited to find this! I'll have to come up with my own roof, but this is a great start! Thanks so much!
