Pear Blossom Press EZ-Light Blog Hop | Lighting Up the Treat Shop!


Hello friends!  I'm so happy to be joining so many awesome crafters for the Pear Blossom Press Light-Up Card Hop with EZ-Lights.  Trust me when I say, "You will be using these all the time once you see how EZ they are to assemble!"  There are prizes for commenters too!  You will need to visit each stop and comment for your chance.  Please see the complete list of hoppers and prize information at the end of this post.


I have lots of photos for you, so on to the fun part!  I have always been impressed by the light up cards I've seen; however, I've been totally intimidated by trying to make one.  The EZ-Lights really are SO easy to use.



Check out these COOL lights!!!


I used the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On set that coordinates with their House Builder dies for my card.  (Links to all products are below.)  I created my card base from the House Builder dies.  I die cut one more house to use all of my elements on and to add the EZ-Lights to.

Next I have some photos of my assembly.   The top left is a photo of the back of the top layer showing how I laid out the unit and situated the wires, taping them down as I went along.  The next photo show how I used a small hole punch to make a hole for the umbrella light to stick through before adhering the roof .  The bottom right photo shows the foam tape (doubled up) and the Scar-Tape I used on the battery pack.   Finally, CHECK the lights before adhering it to your card base!!

  

   

After I had the top layer adhered to my card base, I could finish up with the cute little details to complete my treat shop!  So the recipient knows this is an interactive card, I stamped "press" onto the shrub on the left.



I don't really do videos, but I here's a short one that I hope works!  Haha!


I'm so glad you stopped by for a look, and I hope I've given you some inspiration to give these AWESOME EZ-Lights a try!  Be sure to go to  each stop and comment along the way for your chance to win!  See the prize information below this list.
