Very Easy Pop-Up Christmas House Card

Easy pop-up cards, positivelypapercraft, easy Christmas cards


Hi Everyone,
Thank you for visiting my Blog today! If you follow me you would of saw the Pop-Up Woodland card that i made the other day. This has been so popular and i just want to say 'Thank you' to everyone who has sent me pictures of their version!! I love seeing your makes! I enjoyed making that card and watching the little scene 'come to life'.
My mind has been ticking away thinking what else i could make using the same concept. I decided on this adorable pop-up House card!! It turned out so cute and its even easier than the Woodland Card!!





No dies are required to make this card. I did use dies for my door and windows but you can easily make your own. I only used them because i had them. The Tree, Ginger bread men, sign and presents are stamps. I stamped them, coloured them in then fussy cut them out. I just left a small tab sized piece of card on the bottom so i could fold it and use it to stand the elements up. You can use whatever stamps you have.

DIMENSIONS

POP UP CARD MEASURES 5 3/4" X 11" 

SCORE IN THE MIDDLE @ 5 1/2" 

MARK THE FOLD LINE 1" FROM EACH SIDE AND MEASURE UP 1" CUT UP BOTH OF THESE PENCIL LINES

CARD BASE MEASURES 6" X 11 1/4" 

SCORE IN THE MIDDLE @ 5 5/8"

CARD FOR THE HOUSE MEASURES  4 5/8" X 5 1/2"

MEASURE DOWN 1 3/4" ON EACH SIDE AND MARK

MEASURE THE MIDDLE OF THE CARD AND JOIN THE PENCIL LINES TO CREATE A POINTY ROOF. CUT WITH SCISSORS


Please  check out my Youtube video for full instructions. I have added the link at the end of this post.

Until next time.....

EASY Pop-Up Christmas Card! (Folds Flat)



Hi Everyone
Thank you for popping over to my Blog! Today i have the most adorable Pop-Up card that is so simple to make!! How cute has mine turned out!!! I love it. The longest part of this project was gluing all the pieces on, like the trees and little snowflakes etc. I happily sat and glued away though as i really enjoyed making this card.
My mind was also going crazy with all the different types of decorations i could use. Maybe little Houses and Villages etc. Maybe doing some more stamping and adding paper to the background etc. There are so many different ways you can decorate this card.

Beautiful Double Folding Shaker Frames

Shaker picture frame tutorial


Hi everyone,
Today i am back with this gorgeous double shaker picture frame. I love this and its really simple to make. It would make a fantastic gift for any occasion so i hope you like it and will give it a try for yourself. I made 2 versions, a Halloween one which i will picture below and this gorgeous Silhouette style. I got the images in a swap but i have been told they are from Hobby craft. Of course you can use whatever you have, Stamps, Photographs, Die cuts etc. I am just giving you the concept and the idea.

Shaker picture frames
Here is a picture of the Halloween one on the right.

I used large Frame dies to make mine but you can use any frame dies that you have. Anything like a circle or rectangle will do. You could even just use a paper trimmer or craft knife to make your own frames so dies are not essential to be honest.

With me using Dies i can not really give measurements as its likely that you will be using different ones to me. I just wanted to give you the idea. This would look fantastic in a Christmas theme!! You could have a Photograph in one side and i lovely Christmas scene in the other with shaker bits.

I will link my You Tube tutorial below so you can pop over and check it out!!

Bye for now

Faux book box, Christmas eve box,

Hi Everyone,
Today i am back with a a Christmas version of the 'Spooky Spells' Book Box i made. I have had so many requests to make a tutorial so i have. You can find that on my You Tube channel ( The link for that is at the end of this post). As you no the original Book was made in a Halloween theme, i did think when i was making t that it would look great in a Christmas theme.

I really hope you will have a go at making one. I would like to see more people making my projects as i put so much work into them. It gets very disheartening when people don't attempt to make any. You can email me your pics to positivelypapercraft@gmail.com. If you are a member of my Facebook group you can post the pictures on there.

Of course you can use Dies to decorate the final project like i have but you can also use stamps or patterned paper etc. Its so simple to make and it looks adorable. Its very roomy inside and you can fir sweeties or Gifts etc. I suppose you could even use it for Cards & Envelopes.

Large Christmas Cracker Box (holds 6 Crackers)

positively papercraft

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Blog!
Today i have a gorgeous Christmas Cracker project for you. This large box holds 6 Crackers and would make a perfect gift for so many people. The crackers are made from a Cracker die but the box i made myself. Of course you don't have to put crackers in the box, i think it would also hold a bottle of Wine and some Chocolates.

I thought it would be nice to put an acetate window on the front . You can just use whatever shape dies you like for yours. The box has 2 lids, the bottom one i glued on as i didn't want the crackers falling out. I also made a carry handle from Ribbon.

Please check out my Video tutorial. You can find the link at the end of this post.

Until next time......

Beautiful & Easy Christmas Diorama Cards

White Christmas cards


Hi everyone,
Thank you for stopping by my Blog Today!
I want to share these beautiful Diorama cards with you. I made quite a lot of them and most of them are White, which i think looks so elegant. I think my favourite is the Black & white one. They are very simple to make and you can use most frame die sets. I used a mixture of Ovals &  Rectangles but you could also use Circles & Squares, whatever you prefer.

The Snowy hills are just some Border Dies that i have so you don't need specific 'Scene' Dies, just use what you have. I think they turned out so pretty and the great thing is that these cards fold flat for posting!! Here are some more i made.











I also have a tutorial on Youtube so please check it out. I will put the link below.

Until next time......
