Pop Up Cube and Cover

Here is a fabulous project that makes a great 3D gift card for someone special. Special thanks to Keran Howell from Tuppence Coloured for inspiring me to make this and showing me how it’s done. The pop-up cube is a 3″ cube and the cover for the cube is 6″ x 3 1/8″ x 1/8″.

As Stampin’ Up! gets ready to release it’s new Annual Catalogue in June this year, we say goodbye to many retiring products. So what a great opportunity to use some of those retiring items in my project today.

The above example uses Emerald Envy as the base colour and the patterned paper is from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper pack.

The sentiment above is from the stamp set ‘Tin of Tags” and the sentiment used on the Pop Up Cube comes from the stamp set “Tin of Cards”.

I love punches and have collected many of the Stampin’ Up range over the years. This project uses the following punches:
– 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch
– 2″ Circle punch
– Pansy punch
– Petite Petals punch
– small flower from the Itty Bitty Accent Punches set (retired)
– 1/8″ hole punch (retired)

Embellishments for this project are:
– ruched ribbon in Emerald Envy
– Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone Basic Jewels

I created my own templates – a little different to Helen’s, that made it easier for me to create my cube. I won’t share that here out of respect for Helen. But I found I needed to flip┬áthe design of one of her pieces of cardstock to ensure the score lines were for both pieces of card were on the right side of the cardstock. (This will make more sense if you make one).

I love this project as it’s a great way to use up leftover DSP and there are so many different designs that you can do. What a great 18th, 21st, 100th cube it would make.

Hope you are inspired to make one yourself! Go for it – it’s lots of fun and produces a satisfying result.
