Hazel’s hints & tips

Fol­low these top tips from Hazel to make im­pres­sive pop-up box cards

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Masterclass Pop-up Box Cards -

Cover the outer pan­els of the box with pat­terned pa­pers be­fore fold­ing, as this will make it eas­ier to at­tach the pieces. Lay­er­ing your pat­terned pa­pers onto coloured card gives a more pro­fes­sional fin­ish and en­hances the colours.

Care­fully plan the top­pers and em­bel­lish­ments for your pop-up box be­fore at­tach­ing them. Avoid adding too many el­e­ments as the card will look over­crowded.

If you are us­ing ac­etate, en­sure that it is thick and sturdy so that your em­bel­lish­ments will stand upright. You can also keep the strips fairly short to avoid bend­ing.

Us­ing a wet glue to at­tach the in­ter­nal pan­els will give you a lit­tle more time to en­sure that they are cor­rectly po­si­tioned be­fore se­cur­ing in place.
