Popping up again

Hello everyone

As the pop-up box cards have grown steadily in popularity and I am regularly asked to personalise them for my customers I realised that being able to allow customers to choose their own sentiment or age at point of sale might be a good idea.  It has taken a bit of time and work on my part but I am getting there!  I chose four particular cards to get the ball rolling and so far it has proved to be very popular.

 The four boxes are "Pink Flowers" (BOXP012),

"Green Flowers" (BOXP001),

and "Spring Flowers" (BOXP016).

Each box has it's own style of sentiment

and I have made and cut out the numbers to colour co-ordinate with each individual box too.

So now when a customer purchases one of these four cards I can add their chosen number

and then their chosen sentiment
without them having to come back the following week to collect it.

Recently I have been asked to make these cards for anniversaries and to add the number too so my pop up box cards are very versatile!

They make super get well cards, particularly for hospital patients, now that flowers are no longer allowed on the wards.

Sometimes I am asked to add names or actual dates onto the box. I can do that too but unfortunately not on the spot so you would need to place an order for this.

I can also make a pop up box card with a special theme like this one with cats and dogs on it

or this one with a fairy theme, which was also personalised with the age and name

All of my pop up box cards are unique to me as I design, print, cut and assemble them myself, using licensed artwork from others.

Other cards in my current range include the following.

And finally, this cute one, using artwork by Kate Hadfield Designs

which has a choice of four sentiments

I am constantly thinking of and working on new ideas so look out for new additions to the range.

If you are interested in learning how I make my pop up box cards, then call into The Venue, Manor Walks, Cramlington on a Thursday between 10am and 4pm and watch me at work - you will be very welcome.  I will be there every Thursday in May and June.  For further information about these free demo days have a look at the Lev3l 3 Community Crafters Blog or their Facebook Page.
