Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 2: Present Pop Up


Welcome to Week 2 of the Triple Play Blog Hop. This week we are all showing our takes on Karen Burniston's fantastic Twist Cube. If you're not familiar with Karen's dies, this is a great introduction. She is an engineering marvel, yet makes it foolproof! Take this beauty - look at how it looks 'squashed'.




And this is how it looks popped-up! Isn't that fun? Here are the details on what I used - the gold cardstock is from Die Cuts With A View, and I stamped it with Background Basics: Christmas from Papertrey Ink. (The ribbon, button and baker's twine are from PTI, too.) Karen Burniston has made a great video showing step by step instructions on how to assemble this, too - perfect if you're a visual learner like I am. You can view the video here on Karen's blog .  You'll be amazed at just how easy it is! They look great placed in a card, or (as I plan to do) hanging on the Christmas tree. (Just think - you can send an ornament in an envelope!)

Hop along and enjoy all the amazing creations! You can view the full list of participants on the Sizzix Blog, or use the Triple Play Widget on my right margin. Thanks for stopping by.

Be well. ~ Jenn
