I was inspired by the color combination in Graphic 45’s Cityscapes Collection to create masculine treat containers. With neutral colored accents such as sequins and twine, this can be made quick and easy using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″, Twine and Adhesives Dots Mini (for sequins).
The treat containers are adhered together using Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/8″ to ensure they hold up when filled with goodies! The added element of a “pop up” is the cute little tag which is popped up with some twine peeking out behind it using 3D Foam Squares White Small. To finish it all off add a few sequins using our Adhesives Dots Mini.

For this Pop-up Challenge, I made an accordion card because I love all the different elements this paper offers. I started by fussy cutting more than I needed, and narrowed down my choices and placement using the E-Z Dots Repositionable adhesive. It allowed me to temporarily adhere the pieces, remove them, adjust position and move them again until I had it just right. E-Z Dots Repositionable give me a strong bond that holds, but allows me to move pieces without damage or reapplication. It’ll hold forever unless I decide to move it again.
Once I made up my mind, I adhered the layers using 3D Foam Squares, Crafty Foam Tape for longer pieces, and E-Z Squares Refillable. I added a few Creative Photo Corners. For the back side of the Eiffel Tower image corners, I added glitter to take care of the exposed adhesive. (baby powder or similar would work too, just so that it doesn’t catch dust and dog hair, LOL) This card folds flat for mailing, and then expands for display. From different angles, you see different images on the multiple layers.
