National Parks Blog Hop

Welcome to my pop-up stop on Club Scrap's National Parks Blog Hop!

Pop-ups are one of my favorite crafting tricks. Club Scrap's heavy-weight papers are ideal for creating these dimensional layouts. Last week I designed a fun 12x12 pop-up scrapbook page with the National Parks Collection. Check it out:

I won't go into too many details since I already shared the technique on my previous blog entry. But I had so much fun with that one, I had to make another while the process was fresh on my mind.

Here is the page closed.

Pop-Up Page Closed

Here I am starting to lift the flap . . . my favorite part . . .

Bam! The page pops to life!

Open at a 90 degree angle

Some of you may wonder how to make something like this work within a scrapbook. Simply cutting the page protector will do the trick. Follow these steps to accommodate your pop-up:

1. Slide a closed pop-up layout into a page protector.

2. Use a permanent marker to draw a line around the entire pop-up area, including the top hinge, left, right and bottom edges.

3. Remove the layout and slide a cutting mat into the protector.

4. Use a grid ruler and craft knife to cut around the outside of the markings, making the opening slightly larger than the pop-up flap.

5. Completely remove the rectangular portion of the page protector.

6. Slide the layout back into the prepared protector, and the pop-up will function freely.

Thank you for popping in!

Next on the hop is the talented and witty Janet Moran at Dishing With Janet. Be sure to check out what she's up to.
