13 Frights of Halloween 2023 - no 2


Slide and pop-up drawer project -

I've shared photos and a video on Social Media again of this lovely project I made a couple of years ago for the DT of Ctaft Consortium.   I never had any instuctions nor followed anyone else's tutorial; many years ago Craft Work cards released something similar with a Christms theme and I tried to remember how it worked.




Unfortunately the actual project was sent to CC HQ a long time ago so I can't measure and give exact  dimensions. Basically,  it was a simple  pull-out drawer with decorated sleeve. The magic came from the inside of the drawer - I decided how many pop-up rows I wanted and how far apart, then scored and creased a long strip of card - valley, mountain, valley,   space,  repeat.   then I glued the inside of the mountain and next valley fold together to make a ridge - just like making memory albums bindings. 


For example, if you cut a piece of card 3" x 5"    score   1", 1 1/2,   2,   3,   3 1/2,    4,                              fold and burnish well  as                            valley, mountain, valley,        valley, mountain, valley

place a strip of double sided tape between the 1 1/2" and 2" score  lines and stick together also between 3 and 3 1/2 score lines. 

This was adhered inside the drawer with strips of pretty papers between the ridges.  I stuck Puffy stickers  onto the face of the ridges so that as the drawer is opened, the stickers  just pop up!  

Simples!   I hope this makes sense.  I am unable to post a video to my blog but if you go to FB or IG you can view it there.
