Tic Tac Explosion Box & Angled Tri-Fold Card

Today, I have an explosion box sized to fit a regular container of Tic Tac Mints and “Take 2” on another Angled Tri-Fold Card! I’ll help you get just the right angles for the fun fold! These coordinating projects were so fun to create!

I was in a purple mood this week, what can I say? It’s my favorite color! And Lavender is my favorite botanical! These projects are easy to put together, so let’s get to it!

Tic Tac Explosion Box

One of my favorite boxes to create is an explosion box, because 1) it’s easy and 2) it holds itself together without adhesive! This one is sized to fit the 1oz container of Tic Tac Mints. Here’s what the inside looks like:

And here’s what it looks like with out the mint container:

This project also only uses a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper! I had fun looking at my die sets to come up with some layers for a simple sentiment:

A little scoring, a little cutting, a little faux bow, a little bling and… done!

Here’s the template for reference (not to scale):


  • Designer Series Paper – 6″ x 6″
    • With pattern sideways, score at 1-1/2″ from each side
    • With pattern upside down, score at 1-7/8″, 2-5/8″, 4-1/2″, and 5-1/4″

Angled Tri-Fold Card

This is another take on an Angled Tri-Fold card! I shared one last week that is slightly different, so here’s another version for you!

The challenge with these Angled Tri-Fold Cards is getting the angles of the Designer Series Paper layer right, so I put my thinking cap on and figured it out for you! You’ll need to watch my video below to see how it’s done, because it’s hard to describe it in words!

I opted for a Velcro Dot closure on this card, but you could use magnets, ribbon, or a belly band to keep it closed. Here’s what the card looks like open:

To create the angles on the card base, you just add tick marks 2-1/8″ from each corner in both directions and then cut from tick mark to tick mark. I show you in the video how to line up the Designer Series Paper layer to get just the right angle!


  • Cardstock – 5-1/2″ x 11″
    • Score along the 11″ side at 3-3/8″ from each side
    • Add tick marks at 2-1/8″ from each corner in both directions on all 4 corners
    • Cut cardstock from tick mark to tick mark to remove the corners
  • Designer Series Paper – 5-1/4″ x 3-1/8″ (2 pcs – portrait)

  1. I loved the card on your latest post.
    I have given up most of my scrapbook projects.
    I am 83 years old and have been scrapping
    as long as I can remember. Loved every minute.
    My eyesight is failing me now but I still have my memories.

  2. I liked the tic tac holder, and it looks like it’s easy to make quickly, I’m getting ready to try it. The card didn’t turn me on, but I like boxes.

  3. Thank you for all your fun boxes and cards I keep a hard copies in a binder.
    Two questions:
    Will you be attending 2025 convention in Raleigh?
    Where do you get the clear envelopes for your 3×3 thank you cards you put in your paper shares?

  4. I watch you all the time, I have made many of the projects you have demonstrated. I love all of them, thank you,

  5. Love this post, you explain everything easy to follow. I look forward each week to your video. Thanks for sharing.

  6. It’s really interesting how different this week and last week’s cards are with just that little change to the angle.
    This one, at least to me, seems more masculine. Sounds silly, but they are both terrific and as always,
    you do all the ‘heavy lifting’ for us to come up with how to get the DSP angles easily done. Thank you, Julie!
