Chunky February Tim Tag

I have made it one of my goals this year to play along with the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013.  This month I got a little crazy and made a Chunky Tag.  I love to make Pop N Cut cards and wanted to combine the two - here is what I ended up with.  It seems this is a good piece to enter in the Inspiration Emporium Challange this month, it's all about
L.O.V.E.


For the front I stamped the Tim Holtz "Queen of Hearts" Stamp 3 times.  Once on Craft and twice on watercolor paper.  I cut out each stamped image and layered it as Tim did on his tag. For the background I ran red Core'dinations paper through the Valentine embossing folder and then sanded it.  I stamped and cut out the "Pointy Finger" and added it with pop ups.  I tore the bottom section and embossed it with hearts.  I then added the black and white twine and then the plastic letters were added "u rule".  The finishing touches were the crown and a pin with a heart.


I used two sections of a Configuration Printers Tray that was left from another project.  I added some Tissue Tape around the outside edges and then connected them with some Graphic 45 Hinges.  Now it opens like a book.  I put Tissue Tape on the inside edges as well and then stained with some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

For the inside I had some great paper from Lost & Found.  I cut the PoP N' Cuts Insert with the Flying Heart using my Base Tray because I wanted the insert to be 5.25" high.  You can see how to do this by watching Karen Burniston's video.    I had to alter the insert piece to accommodate the width of the box.  The altering took some trial and error but finally got the results I was looking for. I reinforced the back of the heart with some cardboard from a cereal box. 
In order for the heart to pop up to the desired height I had to add some chipboard to the bottom of the right side. 

After a little decorating I was pretty happy.  Hope you enjoy it.
