Pop-Up Box Card Tutorial

Hello everyone!

Just getting ready to go off and teach a class! Remember this? (click to view post)


Well, today I'm teaching this class and can now post the many requests for this tutorial. The tutorial is in video format for you to follow along. I made a few mistakes in the video, so please watch the captions carefully for corrections.


Hope you have fun making your pop-up box cards! I think they're addictive, lol.

Thank you for stopping by today, and Happy Papercrafting! (There's more for you below)
