Fun Pull Out Accordion Style Card!

Valentines card, #positivelypapercraft


Hi everyone,
Happy Saturday!!! I hope you all have a great Crafty weekend! At some point over the Weekend i am off to HobbyCraft!! I love that shop but don't get to go very often as its a bit of a drive so really looking forward to going. I will probably end up getting craft supplies i don't need but hey lol never mind :-) The way i see it is, i don't drink or smoke and i don't go out or buy expensive clothes etc so this is my treat :-)

So i wanted to share this cool pull out accordion style card with you. I have seen them around and thought they looked pretty cool. As Valentines Day is getting closer, i thought i would make it in a Valentines theme. When you open it out, it says 'I love you', how sweet.  I love the Red & Black and it looks very striking. I hope you like it to.

It all folds in and is kept together with a belly band. I had a lovely pack of gold foil ephemera so i glued a Butterfly on the front of the Belly Band. I think the Gold & White goes so well with the Red & Black. Its really simple to make and you can use any shapes you like. Hearts, squares, circles etc. You could also spell out Birthday or anything you like, maybe someones name.

DIMENSIONS

BLACK CARD MEASURING 11 3/4" X 2 3/4"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ EVERY 3/4"

BELLY BAND MEASURES 1" X 8 1/4"

I have had a few people asking me where i got the Heart dies from. I bought them from THE WORKS but i have know idea if they are still available to purchase.

I hope you will give this project a try and i will be back tomorrow with another project.

Bye for now

Love Ann xx

Exploding Box Mini Album!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! I am so happy it will be Bank Holiday Weekend soon! We are supposed to be getting some gorgeous Weather to! Lets hope so. I hope you have a great Weekend whatever you do :-)

I am really excited about today's project, i think its so cool! Basically, from the outside it just looks like an ordinary box, however when you open it up, its anything but ordinary! Its a mini album! How cool???

I did see a project like this on another site but i can not seem to find it now. I saw the idea but used my own measurements etc. I really love this project and i loved making it to. Please do not think for one minute that this project is hard! Believe me when i say its very simple, it really is. Its not the quickest thing to make but its worth it!



My box was made with Berry burst 12 x 12" card, Whisper white card and the share what you love DSP. I also used Dragonfly dreams thinlits and celebrate you thinlits which will be carrying over to the new annual catalogue!

Gorgeous Flip Flap/Shutter card Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog and thank you for stopping by!!
I am really pleased with Today's project and i think you will be to! I am calling this a Flip Flap/Shutter card. It reminds me of those shutter blinds that people have in there window. Its a really cool design.

I came across this type of card on another YouTube channel called JK arts. I did make some changes to the measurements and also simplified the instructions a little as i found them a little tricky to follow. Please don't be put off thinking it looks really hard and complicated...its really not!!


I think this card would be great for Valentines Day but you could also change the Hearts for Cakes or Balloons and turn it into a Birthday card. It would also be great as a Mothers Day card.



Another thing i like about this card is that it folds totally flat. It also stands up perfectly to. A really great card for lots of different occasions.

Beautiful Triple Enforced Keep Sake Box

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to my Blog. Today i have a really sturdy & super strong box for you. I am really quite pleased with this box & i know you will love it to!!
It is not hard to make and i think it looks very professional to. As the title says it is triple enforced!! Once you make it you will see for yourself how strong it is.


As you can see in the picture above i used the Delicate lace edgelit dies to make the closure of the box look more interesting and quite ornate. I added a cute padlock charm to finish it off.


As you can see the inside is also very neat and professional looking. I even added a cute faux mirror to the inside of the lid.
