POP UP CARD DIRECTIONS
Take a piece of CS that measures 8 a half by 7 1/4, score down the center. Cut the edges of the paper the way you would like. This paper is going to be anchored onto another one that is heavier. Now, this is to make two parallel boxes one smaller on top of the other. Measure and mark a line centrally 4 3/4inches long at 1 1/4inches from the bottom of the card. Mark another line parallel to this 2 and a half inches, above it, also 4 3/4inches long.
Draw another line 1/4inches from this line, again centrally, 2 3/4inches long and another the same length 2inches. above it. Cut along these lines with a craft knife. Fold the card in half along the fold line, pushing the boxes the opposite way to the main fold.
Cut out a rectangle of patterned paper measuring 4 3/8 by 2 and a half and a rectangle of another type of paper measuring 2 3/4 by 1 3/4 to cover the boxes (this is your gift wrap) Now you can cut ribbons to put on your presents and add a bow to the one on the top. You can make a smaller card and just put one box in it, instead of 2.
Now I chose to put my flowers in mine and use it as a vase instead. So use your imagination. The one thing we can NEVER use up! Be creative, have fun! I await seeing your ideas! Debi

I'm new to commenting, usually I just look. But I love your card and would like the instructions. I don't know if I'm supposed to give you my e-mail or if you get it when I comment. Please send instructions for the card.
