Krafty Tips & Tutes - Week #15: Pop Up Box Tutorial!

Welcome to another week of Krafty Tips and Tutes here at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  Each week one of our fabulous Krafty Girls will be sharing a little post with some sort of tip or tutorial for you and we hope you find them inspirational! 

This week our hostess is KAREN!!!  And she's prepared a fantastic video tutorial sharing how to create a POP UP BOX!!  Enjoy the tutorial and then go ahead and get krafty and put it into practice!  We'd love to see what you create, so be sure to share it on our facebook page!!

 I am so excited to share a new tutorial for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps with you today! You know that I LOVE interactive cards, so it probably won't come as a surprise to hear that I have been having so much fun playing with pop-up box cards lately. I made one not too long ago for my youngest daughter's third birthday, so I thought it would be great to create a tutorial for you, creating a pop up box card that folds into a standard A2 size (my favourite size for cards).

Okay, now there are all sorts of stamps and embellishments that work well with this style of card, but I am going to argue that this new set from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps called Monster Hugs is just about as perfect as it gets! Here's what you'll need:
  • Coloured and fussy cut stamped images. I used three from Monster Hugs.
  • Piece of 9 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock
  • Piece of 3 3/4" x 2" cardstock
  • 2 pieces of 5 1/4" x inch pattered paper (I created one in white so I could write a message)
  • 6 pieces of 2 3/8" x 2" patterned paper (I used 2 different patterns - 3 pieces each)
  • 3 pieces of 2 3/4" x 2" patterned paper.
  • Adhesive
  • Thin strips (approx. 1/4") of clear acetate or coordinating cardstock
Now I know that sounds like a complicated list to start with, but it really is quite an easy technique. Here's a little video to show you how to pull it all together! So there you have it! I hope you'll give this technique a try - you won't be sorry!

April Krafty Kard Klasses!

Who'd like to come hang out with us in the Krafty Kave???  We've been having such a great time at our monthly Kard Klasses and you are welcome to join us!!!  Let me tell you, we have a riot!! 



We will be making 4 krafty projects featuring some of our current lines of stamps.....and possibly some of the NEW APRIL release stamps!  The class will run for about four hours and I'm holding one on a weekday afternoon and one on a weekend afternoon!

The dates for this month are Wednesday, April 30th and Saturday, May 3rd...both from 1-5pm!  There are a very limited number of spots available (as the Krafty Kave is only so big) so sign up right away.  The cost of the class will be $25 AND you'll get 20% OFF anything you purchase from the Krafty Shop that day!!  Sound good??

You'll be asked to bring your basic tool kit.....things like a cutter, scissors, bone folder, adhesives etc.  And also if you have Copic markers, bring those as well.  I will have some class markers to share but if you bring your own, that will cut down the waiting time having to share. I'll email out a marker list closer to the date so you can bring the ones you'll need.

Feel free to email me directly or message me on Facebook to reserve your spot!  I will require a $10 deposit and if something unforeseen comes up and you can't make it, the deposit can be used in the shop!

Some of the spots are already spoken for, so if you'd like to join us, please message me right away!!
