Today I would like to share with you a pop-up card decorated with Prima papers and sea oriented Tangle patterns. In the Zentangle world this is referred to as a ZIA, Zentangle Inspired Art.
Ordinarily, I would fill the center with lots of images sticking out, and I will, I just though you would like to see the basic design first.
The top flaps have two layers of Prima Seashore papers and then a Bijou tile Tangled with different designs. Tangles included are Mooka, Roxi, Kelp, Indy-rella, and Squid.
I Tangled an underwater scene around the base of the box before putting it together. Tangles included are those named above as well as Phicops, Printempts, Moon Pie, Tipple, Sanibelle. I lightly colored the scene with chalk pencils.
The beauty of a Pop Up Box card is that it folds flat and can be sent to someone through the mail in a regular envelope.
I wrote a tutorial years ago on how to construct the Pop Up Box. You can view the tutorial here.
A Zentangle Pop Up Box is a great way to share your love of Tangling and give a unique card to your favorite person.
I'll be entering this card into a few challenges:
- Crafter's Cafe - Multiple folds
- Crafty Gals Corner - Under the sea
- DoubleClick Skittles - from the ocean
