Sweetums birthday is coming in a couple of weeks so when I found Gemma Clarke’s video on how she made a pop up card, well…you know I had to give this a try. And I can’t wait for him to open it either!
It looks not suspicious at all does it? Just a little box with a surprise in it.
Once you pull the handle and slide the box top off, this box pops right out of the tray. On three sides it spells out his name and the hot air balloon coordinates with the box cover.
a little close up.
You can watch the box in action by clicking on this file popupbox.
Now, seriously, how does someone ever come up with an idea like this? For me I watched a youtube video by Gemma Clarke (www.madebygemmacrafts.co.uk) and it was awesome. I drew diagrams and took notes and no one was more surprised than me when it worked! It was another one of those HaPpY dancing days. Here’s what my notes looked like…
It would only make sense if you had seen the video…which is why I’m giving you the link to Gemma’s video here.
