Holiday Blitz Tutorial: Pop-Up Presents Card

Today's Holiday Blitz tutorial is such a fun one, and I've been wanting to feature it for a while - I was so thrilled to realize how EASY it is, since foldy projects tend to undo me... :) It's a Pop-Up Presents Card.

This is the front of my card - I had to HAD TO use this gorgeous bird set that my sweet friend Giovana  sent to me - it has been on my Crafter's Companion wish list for so long.  I watercolored the bird with Peerless paints on Canva-Paper - that is a bit different to work on than watercolor paper, and I really like it. It's not really absorbent, so you have a little longer time to work with colors, and they stay so vibrant on the surface.

Here's the inside of the card - isn't that a fun surprise? It's actually just a few simple cuts and scores. So easy.

It's a fun way to use up scraps, too! And it's useful throughout the year for birthdays and other occasions as well.

Join us all this week for beautiful holiday tutorials during our Holiday Blitz event!

Thanks for stopping by!
