I'm here today with a little, fun card in a box. This is quite different from the others I have made recently and you find a lot of online as this one really does "Pop up"! I follow Dawn Bourgette, a demo from the US on Instagram and just loved this idea, you can see Dawn's card HERE. Thanks for the inspiration Dawn! Obviously I really wanted to make this card but unfortunately there were no measurements on Dawn's post and as I made it I figured out a few more tips and tricks so I thought I would make a video and share these with you!
I decided to use the Butterfly Basics Stamp set for my design...
I made the Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe one in the Video but we made the Cantaloupe* and Pistachio* at class. Here they are closed, wrapped in washi tape (see Washi on page 157 of the Annual Catty) to decorate these boxes.
* now retired colours
The lids are decorated with Work Of Art Stamps for the sentiment teamed with the Butterfly Basics.
**In a total coincidence Work Of Art is on Offer for this week only- Just £15 (in clear mount) 'till the 30th June '15**
As you open the boxes the Jack in the box card starts to pop up, just pull the thick twine...
To see your message!
I love the Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron version
Please feel free to pin this picture so you can easily find this tutorial again :-)
OK, lets take a look at the video!
The measurements for the inner piece as promised on the video,
*Please note I have not made this card in inches- just converted the measurements!
Cut white card to 4.7cm wide or 1+7/8" x full length of card.
Score at 4.5cm or 1+3/4"
Then score at 9cm, 13.5cm, 18cm, 22.5cm and 27cm or
3.5", 5+3/8", 7+1/8", 8+7/82, 10+5/8"
These measurements make a lot more sense when you watch the video and there are also a few measurements that matter when stamping in there too!
And finally one more set of pictures to finish today :-)
Well, this post has been something of a labour of love so I really hope you have enjoyed this card in a box post! and be sure to give it a whirl. If you do please link back here so I can see and remember to share where you saw this tutorial too!
Thanks so much for stopping by today :-)
