Popcorn Anyone?


A looooooong time ago, I saw some online pictures of cute little stand-up triangular cards. I was fascinated with the design. I put it in the back of my mind thinking someday...

I probably even pinned them. (Did you know I'm addicted to Pinterest?)

So, today IS the "someday"...






Today is a PERFECT "someday" because this card fits the theme for the Sweet Stampin' Challenge...

I used a JessicaLynnOriginal image for my card - Brentwood A Good Movie & Theater Popcorn. And of course I just HAD to use some popcorn designer paper for my card, too.

The directions for making this said to hold the card together with Velcro, but I decided to use a large paper clip as part of the design instead. I actually wanted to put some theatre tickets in the clip, but I didn't have any. A theatre gift card would be nice, too. But I didn't have that either. So I put a Chipotle gift card in it to show you how versatile that paper clip is...



I googled to find instructions to make this card - I think it's called a teepee card. Click here to go to Lyndsey's blog and find the simple instructions. THANK YOU, Lyndsey!!!





This is the third side of the card:





Yes, it does fold flat for mailing purposes. Simply remove the paper clip.

I hope you'll participate in this week's Sweet Stampin' Shaped Card Challenge!


Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
