However, I have been lured to the dark side by those adorable pop-up card boxes. I had my class today and that is what we made - and I have never had so much fun making something with a bunch of little fiddly bits. I was SQUEEing when I was putting the flingy things on there - and I had to squee quietly because it was late at night and I was the only one awake.
This thing is EASY and fun. I can't believe (even though I've made two now) that the darn thing folds flat and goes into an envelope - seriously - FLAT. Crazy, man. Just crazy.
The tutorial is for a larger box than mine, but I used the alternate measurement below the main tutorial for one that fits in an A2 envelope. There are two versions that will fit in an A2 - one like mine, and a cute squatty one. The butterflies are from Best of Butterflies with the butterfly punch, and the bird punch for the leaves. The greeting is from Hi There, with the small scallop punch. The base of the box is Basic Black and I used Back to Black DSP - some of the girls alternated the patterns on their boxes and those were ADORABLE.
We had a ball making these together. Love starting my weekend crafting with my ladies.
