Pop Up Telephone Box

These are my projects for Kanban Design Team this sunny 
Monday morning here in my part of Scotland.
All made from the lovely products from Kanban Crafts.

Pop Up Telephone Box Card

(M & M)
Materials and Method
Kanban Crafts A4 Sheet of navy blue card stock
Kanban Crafts A4 Sheet of red card stock
Kanban Crafts Union Jack Bunting Topper Sheet 900173
Kanban Crafts Jubilee Sentiments Topper Sheet 900171
Kanban Crafts Cool Britannia Polka Navy 900182
Kanban Crafts About Town Background Card 900189
Kanban Crafts Birthday Toppers 900178
Silver Foil Card
Red Cord
Red Ribbon

The base card is one A4 sheet of the blue card scored down 
the middle to make an A5 portrait card.
I used red card to make the telephone box.
I wanted it to sit flat when the card was closed
but still be quite sturdy. 
So I decided to keep all the length of one A4,
scored into four equal panels with a lttle bit 
left over as a tab to attach to form 
the box shape. I decided on the 
height by seeing how I liked
it in the card and cut it so that it left space above and below.
I cut out pieces of silver foil card to use as windows and attached them.
I knew I wanted to use the bunting and used some red cord to make it 
drape across design but I wanted it still to close after the bunting was
added so I put it where I thought it was best. It actually looked
fine without the clothes peg but I just thought it made it look more real!
The front is layered with the Polka Dots and Navy Background card and 
finished with one of the navy toppers. I finished with a red bow and added
a litle sentiment to the back of the card to finish. All die cuts,
toppers and layers have been inked around the edges.
