These are the two we created in class
We figured out that you do not need to use 12 x 12 paper for this card and i have a bit of a tutorial for you but urge you to go to Collette 's you tube because its a great tutorial ! Thanks so much for freely sharing Collette !
Start by cutting a piece of A4 cardstock at 4 inches with the short end to the top of the trimmer . it will measure 4 x 11 11/16
31/2 x 10
3 1/2 x 8
9 1/2 x 1 for belly band .
Fold your card base ( largest piece ) in half and burnish .
Adhere DSP to front of card and two pieces to inside of card.
Take your 10 x 31/2 piece and score at 2 1/2 , 5 and 7 1/2 inches in the landscape position.
Valley , mountain , valley fold this piece
Take your 8 x 3 1/2 piece and score at 1 3/4 down the centre in the portrait position . Then lay it in your trimmer in the landscape position and place a pencil mark at the 2 1/4 mark . Flip and do likewise on the other end.
Line up diagonally in your trimmer and score from pencil mark to pencil mark
Burnish the two long score lines and valley fold them .
Take your diagonal score lines and gently fold into peaks until you have a little house shape.
Line up to the centre placing strong adhesive on the v part on both sides , just a smidgen below the fold line of the card .
Then open out and lay the other piece and close the two side pieces so they meet in the centre, line up with the centre of the base and mark the top square piece and opposite bottom square pieces which is where your adhesive goes , unfold and hey presto you have your pop up mechanism !
Here is a birthday card we created using Always Artichoke and Early Espresso.
The first Christmas card uses Real Red and Garden Green with some of the yummy Real Red ribbon available from the Holiday Catalogue .

Today we had a quick class and created these two pages . I love all of the products we used and most were from the Holiday Catalogue except for the trees which are from our all time favourite stamp set , Lovely As A Tree . The colours used are Mint Macaron , Delightful Dijon Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler. Stamp sets Holly Berry Happiness , Seasonal Bells and Christmas Pines with matching dies and punches . We also used Santa Sleigh dies.
Thank you for visiting my blog ,😀😀😀

Here is the little sleigh I created as a gift for my ladies . See the secret compartment where I've hidden chocolate santa ? I cased my design from Sandra Ronald @ Artypapercrafters.com
I altered the box so that I could have a closure because I did to have any magnets to hand . If you'd like the measurements I used just send me an email or leave a comment . I also found the box Sandra made would not fit a pack of tic tacs - perhaps the measurements vary in different countries
Here is a little tutorial of how I created the little box
The piece is cut at 18.9 x 8.4 cm , score in the portrait position at 1.7 cm both ends . Turn to landscape position and score @ 6.8 , 8.4 , 15.4 and 17.2 .
Notch in between the 6.8 and 8.4 score lines , cut away from the 15.4 score line and angle as in picture for the piece that folds inside to close your little box !
