Welcome and a Pop Up Card

Welcome to Cool Mom Creations.  I have been away from blogging for about a year, my previous blog was Confessions of a Proverbs 31 Wannabe. Sadly, when I decided to quit blogging, I completely deleted the blog.  Now I am rebuilding under a new name and trying to remember how to do everything on blogger that was once second nature.  Thank you for joining me for the ride and I hope you'll enjoy my creations and general thoughts through out our journey.  For the most part I will be posting my crafty creations but I will also be sharing my journey through weight loss, parenting, friendships and life in general.  So grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and enjoy!

I have decided to try a new things this year.  I have seen and loved pop up box cards over the past year.  I have avoided making them because there is just so much detail to them.  My first challenge to myself was to make one of these cards. I went to Pinterest for inspiration and directions but the links I found had really long videos.  I wanted something that I did not have to invest half of my day, an exaggeration, into getting directions.  I was really excited to find a video at LovenStamps that had a quick and easy tutorial for the base plus written directions. 


This card is made with a half of sheet of card stock so the measurement is 5.5" x 8.5", score at 2",4", 6" and 8".  Score down the center at  2.75", cut the top score lines to the middle line. There is a little tab on the end that you cut off the top and use the bottom to secure your box.  Easy peasy.  

Thanks for dropping by,

Traci

  1. Traci, I am going to have to check out those directions, I too have steered away from these because they seemed more time consuming then I wanted! Yours turned out really cute! Looking forward to more posts on your new blog!

  5. Cute card! I too have steered clear of making one of these as I didn't have time to invest in watching lengthy videos! The joys of being 9-5 slave with lots of other commitments! Your instructions look simple to follow & I'll check the others out too!
