Here's my card or should I say 'pop-up' card. This is the first time I've made one of these, and loved it. I used to make exploding boxes years ago, because they were so dimensional and these are the same sort of thing. I've take a few photos of this so you can see the detail, I have to admit it took me best part of a day and half to make but I did have a few hiccups along the way.
Why not join in with us and make a card/project for the special someone in your life, but don't forget your project MUST include a Sugar Nellie stamp or digi stamp - both are available from Funkykits. If you're not sure if your stamp IS a Sugar Nellie stamp either sent me a message with it's name/picture or visit the Sugar Bowl website and send an email to Sugar Mama using the link there.
Here's What I Did
I decorated the box sides and flaps with patterned papers edged with distressing ink. Each strut inside the box was embellished with die cut flowers, butterflies, a sentiment and my sweet Sugar Nellie fairy which I coloured with Copics and with a splash of glitter to her wings. Some of the embellishment were added to the struts themselves and some were taped to acetate strips. The idea is to give the box dimension and interest. The content is supposed to be hidden from view when it's flat but when the recipient 'squares' up the box the content 'pop's up' to give the surprise (as you see above).
Hope you like it. These boxes are all the rage at the moment and are so easy to make, so why not give them a go and make one for the 'special lady' in your life using your favourite Sugar Nellie stamp.
