Pop Up Box Card Tutorial

Today I will show you how to make a Pop Up Box Card like this one:

You will need:

  • 12" x 12" cardstock
  • Coordinated patterned papers
  • Acetate (cut into thin strips)
  • Die cuts
  • Scoring board and tool
  • Paper trimmer
  • Double sided tape

First of all trim the cardstock to 23.5cm x 15cm
On the long side score at 5.5cm, 11cm, and 22cm
Turn it around and score at 7cm

Cut down to the score line right where you had previously score (only 7cm down).
Trim half of the small strip on the side (soon after the 22cm score) and keep it for later. Cut a slight angle on the other half.

It will look like this:

Now trim your patterned papers as follow:

  • 6 rectangles 6.5cm x 5cm
  • 2 rectangles 14.5 x 5cm
  • 3 rectangles 7.5cm x 5cm

Adhere each panels as indicated:

Front of the card (outside)

Back of the card (inside)

This is what the box card will look when it's closed.

Now take the strip of cardstock you had previously cut out, cut another one of the same size.  
Fold 2 flaps and adhere them inside the box

Now your box card is ready to be decorated with die cuts and embellishments:
I used this strip of acetate to adhere the hearts and die cut to the inside strips.

Hope you enjoyed my project!
Thanks for reading xoxo
