Crafty Buddy Share – Fairy Pop Up Box

Hello Crafters

Hope you’re having a great week, and the inspiration is free flowing!

As promised in my last post, you can catch up here if you missed it, my craft buddy came a callin’ on Saturday, and as she is such a busy lady, we made the most of our time! We had a great time crafting, chatting and designing.

Yvonne has been crafting a long while but is limited to how much time she gets to make things, as her work is often intensive mentally and physically and long hours, which leaves little time to do what she loves, but she has worked tirelessly to ensure that she has all she needs to make sure by the time she retires, her stash will be all fired up and ready to go! Lovely lady with a great sense of human (has to have to put up with me!), with a big heart.

A while ago I made an exploding box for her birthday, and she absolutely loved it, Fairy Exploding Box.

We were discussing my recent purchase of Marianne Craftables Pop Up Box and we decided to make, would you believe, a fairy pop up box! I have blogged about this die before, but genuinely believe it is worth every penny.

So without further ado, here is her creation and inspiration:

Isn’t that a wonderful little box!

Here’s the items she used:

Well thank you for coming and joining us in our Craft Buddy share.

Have a great week!

A Little Christmas Magic

Hello Crafters

Well by now I would think that your creative side has been put through the mill and you have all been crafting your little fingers to the bone to get those christmas cards done! Totally sympathise as I have been doing the very same thing myself. Thought I had it all covered, thinking I had started so much earlier this year….but oh boy was I wrong! So worked like a trojan Saturday, to get the last of them done, but as they say, you save the best till last, so I would like to share this tiny little box, that is bursting full of christmas spirit!

I wanted it to be full of Christmas cheer when it was open, ‘full’ being the operative word, and I think you can safely say that was achieved πŸ™‚

I used a pre-cut box I purchased from Hunkdory Crafts, and they were really reasonably priced! They are called Mini Pop Up Box, but you can fit quite a bit in there if you don’t mind a bit of jiggery pokery, like us crafters do! They come completely blank, so the box is your oyster, so to speak, fill your boots!

The dies used on this box were:

All the card used except the red mirri card (own stash) was from Papermill Direct.

Well I hope these pictures show the beauty of this little piece of Christmas magic.

That’s it for now, hope you have a wonderful crafty week πŸ™‚

Pop Up Box with a difference!

Hello Crafters

Have you had a good weekend? I am a little late today posting as we had family round for dinner, and I think I bored them silly with all the healthy food talk, of which I am now an avid fan. Mind you I have also never eaten so much in my life!

Talking about healthy, it was Mr Kim’s birthday last week, so the theme for my little pop up was about veggies. So cute these little Lawn Fawn fellas!

Here you can see the box folded flat ready to send:

Then you release the box and up it pops!:

Although it looks like just a pop up box, it has a secret….the little name tags pull up to show another veggie underneath! It was my first veggie box but also my first slider too!

I used the Lawn Fawn Slider dies to make the holes. It was quite complex to get the slider in the right place, but it looks like the veggies are all ready to harvest. Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders was used as the strutts in between to connect the other veggies to and keep the box shape.

The box was made using Spellbinders scalloped pop up box and then covered in the paper.

I used blue fun foam cut with Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds for the backdrop. They were all stamped with Memento Inks, and the Misty tool was used, so I could stamp the images twice to get a real indepth colour to them. These are just so much fun, and there is no end toΒ  what you can do with them.

Well I hope you had a super sunday with good company and fine food. Have a wonderful week.

Hugs
