I love making interactive cards. When I first started making cards the interactive cards were always my favorite to make. The problem was they involved a lot of measuring and special cutting or templates to trace. My end results were ok but not exactly how I wanted. Then I started finding dies to make interactive cards. The dies work great and I had the results I wanted but they started adding up cost wise.
When I finally made the splurge to get my Scan N Cut I was able to get the best of both worlds--interactive cards I love and the low cost of svg files. One of my favorite places to get SVG files from is Lori Whitlock's Shop. I found the files to make the two cards below on her site. I just love how they turned out!
The first card I am sharing is the birthday card I made for Lizzy.
The cube that pops out has 4 sides with decorations.
The card was really easy to put together and I love that it uses a rubber band to create the movement.
The second card I have to share with you is a Father's Day version.
I like that the back of the box is covered too. You could easily add a panel to sign.
I'm sure a gift card would fit inside these boxes.
This time I used the sentiment that came with the file. I printed this one on my printer (although I could have done it with the universal pen holder in my scan n cut too). Then I scanned it and had my Scan N Cut cut out the shape for me. I followed the same process for the cover of the box.
I can't wait to try some other versions of this insta cube. I love how they turned out. Lizzy really loved her birthday card and I'm sure my husband will enjoy his Father's Day card too.
