Birthday Banners and Balloons

Today I have a fun pop up using Karen Burnistons Bam Boxes. Any card can be a pop up with a Bam Box or 2. A shaped card just adds to the fun

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

1- using the Banners Crosshatch I cut the layers of the card base. Blue is the base, white is for the front, back and inside, patterned is for the front and inside. I cut out and assembled 2 Bam Boxes. I cut out 2 hinges from the Tagbook pop up and the Happy Birthday and the Happy Birthday Shadow

2- 3- assemble the card base as shown

4- diecut balloons from Balloon Collage Add On, and gifts from the Gift Pivot Panel from coordinating double sided paper.

5- add the Bam boxes to the card making sure they fold to the back, I added strips of paper to each

6-trim the strips so they do not stick out side the of the card when folded

7- add the gifts and balloons to the Bam Boxes (ignore the little green platform I the photo, I took it out)

8: I made a belly band, 3/4” x 9” and added magnets and green strips of coordinating paper.

9- add the greeting to the front

10-I added some balloons and stars to the belly band.

I found another piece of coordinating paper for the back so I cut it with the Banner Crosshatch die set and added it to the back. I adhered the belly band to the back of the card.

Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
