Oh My Goodies - fabulous 3D "wow" project

How’s this for a project to take me out of my comfort zone? Not only is it pretty and pink, it is 3D and actually quite complex. I found the idea on Pinterest (where else?) and traced it back to a Youtube video by genius German demonstrator Alexandra Grape. The tutorial was in German but I didn’t let that put me off – and Alexandra had helpfully put the measurements across the screen. I even picked up a few new German words along the way, including my favourite, “Gästegoodies”. 

I won’t attempt a tutorial here as you really need to see the video. But I will say that the mechanism is extremely clever but very simple. It’s a strip of plastic (cut from a document wallet) wrapped around the cardstock, so that when you pull the chocolate out of the tunnel, the greeting pops out of the other side at the same time. Genius! Come back tomorrow for an Easter-themed variation on this project. 

Apologies for the ropey picture, by the way; I took them in a hurry before heading off for the weekend.

  1. I was lucky enough to receive one of these and it was fantastic how the greeting popped out of the other side. They are a simply fantastic idea. Thanks for the post..... I can't wait to have a go!

    1. I will have to incorporate them into a future class!

  2. OMGOsh.....LOVE!!! How clever!!!

    1. They're fantastic, aren't they? German demonstrators make the best projects!
