Crafty Today: Birthday Pop Up Box Card

Make a wish!

Make a wish!

These pop up box cards are all over Pinterest and I have been obsessed with them for about two years.  I will share my cheater way of creating these fabulous cards without using rubber stamps.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

  • Jillibean Soup paper
  • Jillibean Pea Pod Parts
  • cardstock
  • scoring board
  • adhesive
  • foam dots and tape

Follow this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers to create the box.  Add assorted pea pod parts to the flaps, straps and inside front of card using the foam tape and dots.  Add embellishment and sentiment to the back of the card.

You want to add the pod parts to the straps in ascending order so it doesn’t block the inside front of the card.  Also, having varying thicknesses of foam tape and dots gives you the flexibility to stack the pod parts and adds emphasis.  I used my favorite Cricut cartridge, Tiny Treasures, to create the 80 on the inside front of the card.  You also can make an envelope for this card using the Envelope Punch Board and choosing size 6×7.  This card has enormous wow factor so you should make it for that special person in your life that will truly appreciate it.  I created this card for my mother-in-law and she had it on view for weeks.  I hope you try it!

Cricut Friday: Birthday Card #25

 

Happy Colorful Birthday!

Happy Colorful Birthday!

I was inspired by this card on Pinterest.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

Fold the white cardstock so it is a finished size of 4.25″x 5.5″. Cut happy from Straight from the Nest at 1.5″ and birthday from Tiny Treasures at 1.25″. Adhere happy birthday to the cardstock.

I love the graphic look of this card and wouldn’t be surprised if I made it again.  I think it is that fabulous and was super easy to make.  What do you think?

Cricut Friday: Birthday Card #21

Have a colorful birthday!

Have a colorful birthday!

Another birthday card for a co-worker who loves color.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

Fold the white cardstock so it is a finished size of 4″x 8″.  Cut birthday from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge at 1.25″ and happy from the Tiny Treasures cartridge at 1″.  Punch out 5 circles.  Adhere the letters to the circles then to the cardstock.  Adhere birthday and tie the twine along the edge of the card.

I was inspired by this card on Pinterest.  I enjoyed working with the rainbow colors, which prompted me to make more birthday cards with this color way.  You will see those soon.  And, my co-worker still has this card on her desk and her birthday was in December.  Wow!  She must have liked it.

Cricut Friday: Welcome Garland

Welcome to the team!

Welcome to the team!

Call me garland girl!  I love to make garlands and all kinds.  I was charged with making two for our newest team members.  We work in a sea of chocolate brown desks and bookshelves and any color is welcome.  You need the following tools and supplies to create these garlands:

  • Cricut machine
  • Cricut/Creative Memories Tiny Treasures cartridge
  • cardstock
  • adhesive
  • hole punch
  • ribbon

Cut the letter flag at 2.5″ and the solid flag at 3″.  Adhere the flags together and punch a hole in the upper left and right corners of each flag.  Thread the ribbon through each hole to create the garland.

So simple, but effective.  They loved them and posted them to Instagram.  Thank you!  It brought much needed color to their workspace and I used what I had in my stash.  Love it!  And of course, I made welcome cards too and those will be posted next week.  Stay tuned!

Enjoy your stay!

Enjoy your stay!
