Part diorama, part pop-up card, the tunnel book is a structure that gives depth and dimension to your paper crafts. Artist and crafter extarordinairre Courtney Cerruti demonstrate two versions of the tunnel book, one based in space and the one set under the sea. The Cricut makes challenging cuts simple and assembly is as simple as using a glue stick to attach your panel to accordion-folded edges. Learn techniques for customizing decorative papers to make these books your very own.

Being meaning to have an excuse to finally make a tunnel book! This was so great as my son has a space theme in his room. Can't wait to make different variations.
