Hexagon Explosion Box - Art Teacher's Perspective

First of all, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this project. SO MANY applications! As I worked with it though, I did realize a couple of things I would have preferred to do.

For example, decorating the flaps first. I found it harder to do this once the box was assembled. especially when stamping or drawing on it.

Also, I had to darken the score lines (when I glued it together I turned it "inside out") and make a paper copy to cut out the hexagon to use as a pattern to cut out my image for the bottom inside.

The last tweak to the instructions would be to recommend using an exacto knife to cut from the corners out (only because I kept over cutting into the hexagon ;-( BUT like I said, I REALY DO LOVE this pattern. Thank you SO much for sharing it. I know my classes are going to love it too :-D
