Pop-Up Shaker Box...

Okay gang...A little while back I was given the opportunity to figure out this cute "pop-up box" as I like to call it...and this is all made from one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" CS. amazing yah? well, I decided to make some of these again. I would do a tutorial, but it can get complicated and I really don't want to confuse anyone. I know that others have made this, but this box is based on the measurements I figured out. I don't want anyone to think I took their idea. this is not an original from me. I just figured out my own way to make this. hope you can enjoy it...As you can see I created a few in different colors.
so what is a shaker queen w/o her shaker? so I of course turned this into a shaker. I cut the window opening with my circle nesties. I used the large star spacer from Stamp and Create and used a large bling in the middle. I even tried making my own flowers with a nestie die. didn't turn out as well as I wanted it to...but oh wells. I also used my favorite MS border punch-daisy fan and added bling. I used the cute PI for my image and printed them at 2" big.
here's what it looks like when you lift the top up...
this is what the top looks like when the box is closed.
here is what it looks like once you open it all the way...see you can fill it up with goodies inside! that's what I plan to do!
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone. This week is a short one for me as furlough Fridays start up again...I love the time off...I just don't try to think of my pay...lol! gotta start crafting...not buying new things, just using what I got...yah right!

I luv mine Joy! I wouldn't want to do a tutorial either, the directions look complicated and the box is to complex! It's amazing box though and lots of space to stuff things in! ;)
