Is it a pop up card, or home décor?
Scrappy Tails Crafts has several pop up card die sets that you can create with an keep for yourself as a season decor project, or you can flatten it and send it in an A7 envelope as a card or gift for someone else!
I’m using the Scrappy Tails Crafts Basket Pop Up Die Card set along with the Assorted Leaves Dies and the Essential Spring Die set to create a project that I’m keeping for myself and placing on a table in my living room for a lovely spring decoration!
How pretty is this little basket in brown with the pastel eggs and butterflies? I love all the extra greenery provided by the Assorted Leaves dies in this little basket as well.
Amazingly, it folds flat to fit in an A7 envelope. The finished size of the basket is 5 x 7″.
I spent a little time die cutting my pieces, then turned on the TV and had a pleasant couple of hours assembling my basket. I’m sure the second time I create one will be quicker now that I know how it goes together.
I’m thinking that I will make one for Valentine’s Day and maybe even St. Patrick’s Day as well. I really enjoyed creating it.
Here is a video tutorial to show you how this goes together:
As you can see, I have mine stuffed full. You don’t need to have this much packed in there, but I had it all cut and I do love filled up spaces.
I actually had lots of die cuts left over for use on another project. They went in the cup on my desk for when I need a project in a hurry.
I used a 100 lb cardstock for the basket and 65 lb cardstock for the bits that I attached inside. I used acetate sticks for the pieces that I wanted to be taller than the stuff attached directly to the inside front of the basket or on the bridge pieces that attach to the inside to hold the decorative pieces that you add.
