Mini Explosion Purse with Facebook Live Video Tutorial

My project today is a mini explosion purse that I demonstrated live on Facebook last night! Here’s the outside of the mini explosion purse:

And here’s the inside:

It fits a Ferrero Rocher perfectly! How fun is this explosion purse?! I adapted this Splitcoaststampers tutorial to make my own mini version. Also, Brenda Quintana has this great tutorial too.

Here’s a link to the original Facebook Live video, but if you just want to cut to the chase, here’s the shortened video:

I did have a question during the live broadcast asking where I purchased the magnets I used. I ordered them from Spider Magnetics on eBay and the ones I used are 1mm x 8mm. They ship very quickly from the United Kingdom and are a great price! Here’s a link to their eBay store: Spider Magnetics.

Also, here’s a little template I created to try to show you where all the score lines should be as well as the parts that need to be removed:
