Over on the Woodware blog this week the girls have been showing off Pop Up Boxes, these are a really clever design I take my hat off to who ever came up with the first one, and I am very sorry that I don’t know who should get the credit.
I really enjoyed making this and I am sure that it won’t be my last one. I have used the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Know Your Heart and stamped simply in wicked Black Dye ink. These stamps were a perfect size to use with the Dreamweaver Nesting Frames I have cut the larger layer from The Celebrate 6 x 6 pad.
Now I have added at the bottom a link to a very good tutorial on making these boxes, but I cheated (yes I know you are not surprised I do it all the time) I used half a sheet of card from the Black Magic Pad which is a 12 x 12 pad which is black on one side and has a colour in the other side the handy little strip in the bottom makes a perfect tab for sticking your box.
This is how I scored the card and trimmed the fold in flap.
For the inside I have used Francoise’s Clear Magic Beyond the Clouds which I think is a lovely sentiment.
Inside I added two support bars.
and filled it with more words and some of Francoise’s Flutterby Butterflies. I used acetate to attach them so that they do flutter nicely.
I stamped on the patterned paper and did a little touch of highlighting the designs.
I just love the these boxes go virtually flat for posting!
If you want to make one of these boxes here is a link to Split Coast Stampers tutorial.
Thanks for visiting pop over to the Woodware Blog and have a look at what the rest of the team have been up too..
