Pop Up Loving

     Pop up boxes are showing up all over right now and I'm loving them.  A sweet lady taught us all how to do it one night at a meet up at For Keepsakes and I just had to give it a try and with my favorite little House Mouses.

     I shortened my box lids a little from the instructions so I could see my box better and I really went to town with the Popups for this box.

     I love how it came out.  This is an awesome fun card and the fact that it folds up flat for an envelope is super.  (OK, mine may not fold quite so flat anymore with the curled ribbons.)

     This is the third in my series of House Mouse Valentines for my class at For Keepsake in St. Louis.
I'm really looking forward to seeing all the Mouse Ladies this Saturday.  We always have a ball coloring up these little critters.
