Challenge #9: Pocket Mini and Pop-up Card

Happy Monday everyone!

I was honored when Gloria invited me to guest design for her amazing challenge blog -- Craft Hoaders Anonymous. Challenge #9 is "Fold it"!

Use some sort of "fun fold" on your project. You can make a fun fold card, a pop-up card, an explosion box, or other type of project that makes use of folded cardstock or paper. You can share some folding techniques that are perfect for scrapbook layouts or mixed media pieces. Create a mini album with a folded binding. Fold some ribbon to make pleats. De-hoard those supplies and show us your folds....paper folds that is!

I created 2 projects for this challenge. First up is this Pocket Mini Album, featuring an accordion fold binding and Graphic 45's Mother Goose collection. Snap Guide included!

Check out How to Create a Pocket Mini With Accordion Binding by Arlene Butterflykisses on Snapguide.

Next up is this Pop-up card I created using Graphic 45's Staples Regular Tag and Botanical Tea collection.

A simple fold to the center of the tag creates a fun "platform" to add a dimensional design...

I used dimensionals to pop up some elements from the Botanical Tea collection. Super fun!

Thanks for joining me today!

Arlene, these projects are stunning! I've made the accordion fold mini before, but never with the neat cover, so thank you for the wonderful tutorial, and thanks for being our guest designer at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!
