Even though my Christmas supplies still
Hi, I'm Betsy Skagen, and I wanted to show you a fun little craft that is sure to make anyone's Valentine's Day pop with fun.
Valentine Surprise Pop-Up Box Tutorial
Cut a piece of Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock with a matchbox die.
Repeat using the White Snow Glitter Cardstock.
Fold the White Snow Glitter Cardstock, adhering flaps, to create the inner box. Make sure the glitter side is on the outside of the box.
Fold the Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock to create the outer sleeve and adhere in place.
Cut the large rectangle from the the leftover Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock inner box piece and adhere to the inside bottom of the box.
Cut two 3/4" x 12" strips of Iridescent Classic Glitter Vellum and score every 1/4 inch. Do this very carefully because it is easy to tear the vellum.
Fan fold the vellum strips back and forth. Adhere the strips together to form a circle. Press flat and secure with a drop of hot glue in the center. This will make the rosette. If you need more detailed instructions on making a rosette, please refer to this basic tutorial.
Cut a red glitter heart that is approximately 1/2" wide by hand (or use a punch) from the Red Stripe Glitter Cardstock.
Using a hot glue gun, adhere the red heart to the center of the rosette, making sure the glitter side of the rosette faces out. Attach red foil hearts, or any small bling of your choice, around the rosette.
Take apart an old click-button ballpoint pen and remove the spring. Hot glue the spring to the inside front center of the box base. Then, attach the rosette to the top of the spring with hot glue.
Adhere a small decoration of your choice to the top (outer sleeve) of the box.
Gently press the rosette backward and hold down while you slide the box into the sleeve. If you wish, you can place a special message beneath the rosette.
Adhere a Red Dew Drop to the front of the drawer.
