Letters To Santa – Pop Up Card Tutorial – By Rikki Graziani

September 1, 2017

Good morning how are you all? Rikki here today to share with you a pop up card tutorial using the stunning new Kaisercraft Collection – Letters to Santa.

(Please note: measurements might vary between steps)



Step 1 : Cut 20cm x 20cm (8”x8”) Square.

Work in a clockwise direction…….

Step 2 : With a Punch Board ; Punch  the measurements of 9cm and 7cm  (3 1/2” and 2 3/4 ”) and score the line at these measurements.

Step 3: Flip the paper over ( so you would have a different pattern facing up wards – the green side of P2391 Carolers ) and repeat step 2.

Step 4 : Flip the paper over ( so you would have a different pattern facing up wards – the music side of P2391 Carolers ) and repeat step 2.

Step 5 : Flip the paper over ( so you would have a different pattern facing up wards – the green side of P2391 Carolers ) and repeat step 2.


Step 6 : Tape or glue your sides of your box…..

Step 7 : With your punch board fold over a short end and punch in the center of the end to make a tab….

Step 8: Cut on the edges to make tabs for the box…..


Step 9 : Now it gets a little bit fiddly but the end goal is to push all your edges inwards to create a box.



Step 10 : With  matching paper cut a rectangle to fit into the center of the tray – approx : 14 cm x 8 cm (5 3/8” x 3 7/8” ), tape / glue to the center of the box.

Step 11 : Cut 3 x Strips of pattern paper 2.5 cm x 8 cm (1” x 3 1/8”) and fold in half and attach to the front of your tray sticking one side to the bottom of the box…

Keep your layers towards the front so you can add a gift card or chocolates at the back of the tray…..

Step 12 : Attach and add CT890 Collectables to the three layers, if they are too heavy you can add a thin strip of acetate to the back of your layers….

The Cover (not really an exact science, always check measurements against the tray).

Step 13: Cut a strip of pattern paper 24.5 cm x 15 cm  (9 1/2” x 5 7/8” )

Working Left to Right…..

Step 14: Score and fold at 1.5cm mark ( 1 5/8”)

Step 15: Score and fold at 10cm mark ( 4” )

Step 16: Score and fold at 11.5 cm (4 1/2 ”) doesnt have to be too exact as you ultimately  want it to be on a the wider side to allow you to slide in and out (*** at this point I measure against the side of the tray rather than go on measurements….)

Step  17: Score where the side meets the bottom, and glue, score and wrap the extra around the box…..

Step 18: Decorate the outside of the box, the SS347 Sticker Sheet is great for this…..

Create a squashable Christmas Card with Kylie.Video included.

August 8, 2017

Hello friends, Kylie with you all today and I am very excited to be back for another term on the Kaisercraft Design Team.Such a wonderful company to represent.I am so grateful!

Today I have a fun tutorial for you all using the new Christmas Jewel collection.

This lovely collection features lots of silver glitter and foil as well as a beautiful array of tonings in mauve through to purple.Since it was so festive I really wanted to make a unique and fun card. I recently completed a ‘Squashable’ Christmas Card.Once folded this pint size cutie only measures 7.5cm x 7.5cm, BUT!…………..

When it opens out……..

It reveals your Christmas message as well as some photos for that personalised touch.

Since it folds in to be so compact it makes it the perfect size for adding to a gift or for mailing.Thanks to its numerous panels, it makes way for being able to add lots of embellishments-

The folding technique can be a tiny bit tricky to begin with…..Just a little,promise…… But once you master it you will find it very simple indeed.I have prepared a video tutorial today which will show you all how I made mine from start to finish.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and it inspires you to give one a go!

 Happy Crafting!

Kylie. xo

Card Making

Hanami Garden slider card tutorial with Kylie.

February 17, 2017

Hello lovely friends!

It’s Kylie with you all again today, sharing an easy slider card you can make using a bobbin.I am using the new Hanami Garden collection for my card.

Here’s a closer look at my completed card.

I really love how this collection offers so many colour way choices, yet keeps the same theme.I have opted for a pink,black and gold colour palette for my card.The Cherry Blossoms from the collectables are soooo pretty!

I like making slider cards as they add that little bit of interest to the front of your card.You can also make them to any size you like.

I really loved the clear stamps that came with this collection.In particular the Cherry Blossom.Here you can see I have stamped it onto vellum and embossed it as an extra feature.

Lots of the collectables have been used, layered upon each other to create dimension and texture.

Here is a short video of how I made my card.

I really hope you have enjoyed my project today and you have a go at making your own slider card.

Until next time,

Kylie xoxo

Card Making Decorative Dies

Shaker card bonanza, by Kirsten Hyde

February 13, 2017

I am often giving classes, and get asked about how to create shaker cards. I decided to go through the process of creating some different shaker cards.  These nine 4″ x 4″ shaker cards, are created from one sheet of patterned paper. I used glass beads, half beads, sequins and micro beads inside the shaker boxes. The shaker boxes has been made from packaging or hand made with dies, acetate, paper and 3d foam.

I have used micro beads, beads, sand, sequins and half beads inside the cards. In the video below, I am going through the different ways of creating these shaker cards.

Individual cards shaker cards:

Cards with shaker boxes made from packaging:

Card created with a hand made shaker box, from a frame from the collectables:

Cards with hand made shaker boxes, created with dies:

Cards with a shaker box with a pattern:

Cards with several shaker boxes:

These shaker cards are great, where you want different colour beads or sequins inside different parts of the card. To create these cards, you create several shaker boxes behind the front cardstock.
