Pop-up House Card: Don't Mess with New Texans!

Scoreboard Blog Hop - Scalloped Box Pop-up Gift Card Holder

The NEW Scoreboard Blog Hop starts today!

Eileen Hull, the designer of the Scoreboards dies, has put together an even bigger group of participants for this hop. Every Wednesday we'll be featuring one of her NEW dies and as an added challenge to us, you get to vote for your favorite!

Visit Eileen's Blog for all the details.

Today's die is the Sizzix Scoreboards XL 656546 Box w/Scallop Flap & Flowers and naturally I could not leave it as a box or else where would the pop-up go? Heh. I cut away the side panels of the box and made it a tri-fold opening card instead with room for a gift card velcro-ed to the back of the pop-up.

Once again I'm using a mechanism from a pop-up die to be able to animate a flat die. In this case, I used the mechanism piece from the Pop-up Sleigh die and then glued Gadget Gears all over it so they would pop-up when the card is opened.

I'm going to sound like a broken record (for the kiddos - "broken record" means "scratched CD" or "corrupted MP3") but I really want to say again that the pop-up dies are tools. You can use them to create the shapes that I designed them to be, but you can also take all those mechanisms and use them to animate your flat dies.
