I am very pleased to serve as your hostess for this fun, educational and inspirational event. Here, I've asked our participants to show at least one card that has either a unique fold or motion.

Here is my project: A folded gift card box, that features a card with both a tri-shutter fold and motion.
Earlier last week, I showed the box I made that was inspired by Alex @ http://www.youhadmeatcraft.com/ 's and Ruthie @ http://www.septemberninth.blogspot.com/ 's PJ party webcast. I designed and offered the template for this box, and showed it before it was "dressed" with the striped paper.
UPDATE: Here is a link to my older post that showed how I made the box, before it was "dressed". It includes a printable template that I designed: http://cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/2011/02/making-card-box-work-in-progress.html
Here the box is dressed. I was careful to match up the stripes, and mounted each piece on blue cardstock before posting each piece on the box.
Next, I made the three cards to enclose in the box. Notice that each card incorporates the same papers as used for the box.
The first two are "basic" (standard fold) birthday cards, made using Cricut's Birthday Bash cartridge:
The third card is the one I made specifically for this hop. Its intricate fold is called a "tri-shutter fold" and the monkey is mounted using an Action Wobble. As a result, the monkey freely swings over his banana vine to have a really good time!
|Here is the card opened. |
The yellow panel is the space for a handwritten message.
The monkey is mounted to the front panel, hanging from the (peeled?!) banana vine, and he has motion thanks to his Action Wobble.
