Exploding Box Mini Album with Pockets and Lid by Zsoka Marko

I have a new cut file at Silhouette! It's an Exploding Box Mini Album with Pockets and LidI asked design team member Zsoka Marko to create something with it... and boy did she ever do it justice! It's fantastic!
Hi there friends, I'm back today with a fun new mini that I created with Paige's new Exploding Box Mini Album with Pockets and Lid cut file. I've wanted to make an exploding box for ages so I'm happy Paige created a cut file for it! This summer my mom celebrated her 70th birthday with a surprise party and I realized I have not scrapped a single photo from the event! So I thought this would be the perfect present for her for Christmas. So dad if you are reading this, please do NOT tell mom about it, please and thank you :) 
Here's the finished box:
The tutorial for assembling this cut file can be watched here:
It's really very simple! You basically cut three of the same cut files in different sizes (all three are included in Paige's cut file), glue them together, and decorate! What I really like about this cut file is that it has these diagonal pockets where you can put photos, journaling, anything you want! I didn't adhere any photos, because I had 33, so I used the pockets for storing them and they are all stashed away neatly. If you don't want the pocket option, you just need to cut off the flap - easy peasy!
I used three different patterned papers from the Turn the Page collection for the base of my album then I used all kinds of embellishments to decorate my pages: chipboard, clips, die cuts, twine, charms, ribbons...
Below is my most fave part of this mini! I added a shaker pocket and two adorable heart charms to this page. 
I adhered the pink ribbon to a few of my pockets, just to add something a little extra. I love how they look!
Check out a couple detail shots below and if you have questions, just holler!

This project was really fun and comes together rather quickly! Perfect for your loved ones!

I hope you are inspired to use the Exploding Box Mini Album with Pockets and Lid cut file to create your next project!


  1. This is AMAZING!! I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Zsoka, are all three of the boxes attached or just sitting on top of each other? They look like they are glued but I cant tell for sure.
    I have all the boxes made, just need to assemble and embellish with a few goodies, so cute and fun. I made bracelets I am putting inside for my nieces birthday. thanks so much.

  3. Hi, I downloaded the file on Silhouette store. But I can not find the pattern for the triangles. Isn't it included? Or do I miss it? I'm a real beginner with Cameo 3D crafts..

    1. The triangles are part of the design included, you simply fold them over and glue them to create pockets. There are three sizes of the pages - add glue to the back of the middle, smallest piece then glue it to the center of the medium sized page, then glue that onto the center of the largest page.

  4. I am needing help, I have no idea how to assemble this box. The site said there should be a tutorial here, but I do not see one, and I don't see any directions anywhere.
