Beautiy Begins the Moment Collapse Cube Frame with Eileen Hull Inspiration Team

Happy Tuesday before Valentines' Day! I hope you are enjoying Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team sharing the "love" of our favorite dies! I am sharing a small tutorial on how to create a Collapse Card using the Block/Cube/Bank XL Die. The Block/Cube/Bank XL Die is retired but I am sure any of you that have this die will love how to create a Collapse Card. BUT.... I did find a few available on Amazon so if you want one click HERE!

Begin by cutting 2 pieces of mat board using the Block/Cube/Bank XL Die and form cube.

Cut bottom from cube.

Cut one more of the Block/Cube/Bank XL Die pieces from mat board, cut pieces to measure 1 1/2". You will need 3 pieces.

Adhere cut mat board to inside of cube to form collapse card.

Adhere inked pattern paper to collapse card.

Add stickers to side of collapse card with pop dots.
Add hemp ties to top of box.

Die cut Flower Layers & Stem from pattern paper.

Ink edges of flower pieces; form flowers.

Add flowers to sides of collapse card.

Add a few prepared flowers to back and inside pieces of collapse card.

Fussy cut images and adhere to collapse card.

Fold Epherema Card in half; place Bookplate, Hinges, & Labels on top of folded card. Make sure to not cut one side of the Bookplate, Hinges, & Labels. I use washi tape to hold in place.

Add pocket to back of collapse card to place prepare Epherema Card in.

Fold to collapse card. It will measure approx. 6" x 6" but depending on the layers that is added you will need a larger envelop to place it in.

Open to get the full affect of the "Beauty Begins the Moment" you open up the collapse card. I hope you are inspired to create a few collapse cards using  Block/Cube/Bank XL Die. Also, experiment with other Eileen Hull Dies to see if you can make other collapse cards. Pam
