1 In Stock
Scrappy Tails Crafts
This is an interactive pop up box die to create an A7 sized pop up card with the measurements of 5.5 inches high, 2.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches deep, when opened. The card measure 5x5.5 inches when folded flat and can be decorated up to 6 3/4 inches high in order to fit a standard A7 envelope. Folded flat the box fits a standard A7 envelope. Included are the following dies:
- The main box craft die used to cut a pop up box (must cut two panels for one box)
- One bridge, used to hold and pop up interactive images (May cut up to three bridges for a full display)
- Four different sized decorative panels to accent your box (A tile design and a heart lace design)
- Four open dies to layer decorative panels for a double layered effect or to use with designer pattern paper
Directions for metal craft die use:
- Gently remove the metal craft die from it’s packaging
- Using your favorite die-cutting machine, lay a piece of strong card-stock facing the sharp edges of the die and run the required “plate sandwich” through your machine (please note that different machines use different die-cutting sandwiches)
- These dies are thin steel dies and they work in most available manual and automatic die cutting machines, such as your Vagabond, Cuttlebug, Gemini, Gemini junior, Spellbinder’s Platinum, Big Kick, Big Shot etc.
- Dies work on different thin materials, including paper, cardstock, specialty foiled or glitter papers
- To assemble the box, cut the main box panel twice, fold the score lines and connect the tabs of the panels to each other’s box panels to create a three dimensional box. Fold down the left, right and front panel. We recommend to keep the back panel standing up to guide you as to the maximum height of the images to ensure the box will fit in an A7 envelope.
Please note: Use strong double sided adhesive to connect both pieces together. To make your Pop up box strong and long lasting, we recommend 100lb to 110lb card-stock.
- Cut up to three bridges, fold on the score lines, attach strong double sided adhesive and place bridges inside the pop up box side panels, ensuring strong bond with the sides of the box
- Cut the single open panels, if desired from colored, or designer pattern paper to create a beautiful design.
- Cut the fancy decorative panels to create your own intricate patterns with tiles and heart lace
- Once your box is assembled, feel free to adore and embellish your project with stamped images, embellishments, and or die-cut images. You can attach images straight to the bridges or use acrylic sticks to create a floating design element or to suspend images in the air
