Pop Up 3D Vignette Phone Details

We've spent all month making funny phone jokes and puns!  Do you realize this little relic is something that most teenyboppers haven't seen in person?  Just as with the typewriter, the phone is an iconic part of our history and technology.  Ever evolving, this phone will always be a part of our coming of age.  During the month we played "I Spy" to peek into how folks were using this die and this is what we found:

  1. A shaker card
  2. A notepad holder
  3. A mini 4-page scrapbook (which will hold Instax pictures)
  4. A gift card holder
  5. A card with multiple sentiments
  6. A basket

We're sure there are more, but in the meantime, here is some additional inspiration to pique your creativity.


There are SIXTEEN dies included in the Telephone Set

My Project Today using 3D Vignette Telephone is a shaped Telephone and a card.

When I saw this beautiful butterfly paper, I bought it immediately. Combination of these two colours blue and light brown is one of my favourites.  Creating a 3D Telephone was simple and had a lot of fun.

I added a gold accent to give my creation a better look. I made this creation for my sister, and I wrote some kind words for her on the cards.

Additionally, like every 3D Vignettes, this is very simple to fold, put into an envelope and mail to your family or friends. 

My second project is a card in a vintage style.

Using S4-1025 Sweet Cottage Flowers Dies I made two roses and decorated my card. Additionally, I die cut "HELLO BEAUTIFUL" from the same paper as a background. 

I used scissors and cut out some printed leaves and put them under my flowers.
