Pop-up Sock Monkey Birthday Card

Pop up Birdhouse Welcome Card

Do you own the Pop-up Christmas Tree die? Did you put it away with all your Christmas stuff? Well you need to dig it out, baby, because it's perfect for an RTM card!

What's an RTM card? RTM = Rob The Mechanism!

The pop-up dies are just 3D tools. They allow you to build stuff upwards instead of keeping it all flat. By covering the pieces of a pop-up die with other shapes/dies, you can change them into a completely different theme. This following card uses the mechanism of the Christmas Tree to create a pop-up from the NEW Sizzix Birdhouse die, by Stu.

After covering the pop-up pieces with other shapes, you'll need to turn them over and use a craft knife to cut the notches and slots through the new shapes, too. This allows you to construct the pop-up in the usual manner.

The pop-abilities are endless! (See what I did there?)
