Pop-Up Matchbook Box
“Hello G45ers! For July’s project I want to share a video tutorial to teach you how to make this beautiful match box with a great pop up that appears when you open the drawer. It’s a lovely project and easy to make that can be a perfect gift, because you can fill the drawer with some candies, or with a mini album and a gift card, as I did. The gorgeous paper collection I used is Once upon a Springtime DCE that includes stickers and chipboard sheets, fabulous designs!
The materials needed:
Graphic 45 Supplies:
-2 sheets of cream cardstock
-Aleene’s quick dry tacky glue
-UHU or E6000
-Double sided tape
-2 flat magnets
-Some cream cord
TIP – Sometimes it is better to use magnets when making pop ups, in this case this will stay flat when the drawer is closed.
TIP – Some embellishments are not only beautiful, but they can work as a closure also.
TIP – Shape the leaves and the flowers with your fingers or with tweezers, they become alive and dimensional!” ~Cecilia
