Today I'm blogging over at the Sizzix blog with a video tutorial for a fun folding technique to double the width of your Pop 'n Cuts inserts. The video also includes a technique for cutting the Ornate Plate die twice from shrink plastic, linking the two plates together using the leaves, and then using the shrunken version as a wreath "O" in the word Noel.
The card in the video is this one. Check out the Sizzix blog to see more photos and a full supply list
You can also use this fun folding technique on the four "stand-up" Pop 'n Cuts inserts (Star, Ribbon Tree, Frame, Poinsettia). Here is an example of the Ribbon Tree doubled. (More photos are on the Sizzix blog)
Here are the Sizzix supplies used in the two cards. For a complete supply list (you know what I'm going to say) visit the Sizzix blog!
Pssst, here's a little idea - In the case of the stand-up Pop 'n Cuts inserts, you can use two folds and TRIPLE the item, but you'll lose your negative space. Still, if you had a large card (like on a layout or mini-album) a triple star might look really cool!
Have you been noticing all my Pop[up] Spotted posts? Wouldn't you like to be included in the next one? Send me your links to projects that use any of my dies, albums or templates - don't be shy! Oh, and they don't have to be pop-up projects - any project that incorporates any Karen Burniston product is fair game to be spotted!
Looking for more video tutorials? You have a couple of choices. The easiest is to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you'll get a notification whenever one is uploaded. From YouTube you can always find the link to the blog post so you can see the photos and supply list. Another option is to click on the category of "Pop-up 2Torials" in this blog's sidebar. That will filter all the blog posts to show you just the ones that have video tutorials. (Here's a bookmark link: Karen Burniston Pop-up 2Torials)
I also take requests! Leave me a comment below and tell me what you'd like to see next. Need some ideas for a particular die? Got a theme that has you stumped? Bring it on!
Happy Holidays! (also, don't forget to visit the, wait for it, Sizzix blog!)
