Amazing Fun Pop-Up Box Cards
I made a couple of these cards for my son & grandson’s birthdays, I just thought they were so unique, I just had to make more of these “Amazing Fun Pop-Up Cards.”
You can make these cards in any colors and designs that you want, that is what is so unique about them. Here are the other 2 cards I made to just give you an example of what you can do with them.
So let’s get started on a little how to for these “Amazing Fun Pop-Up Box Cards.” I made the pop-up pieces using the Design Space on my Cricut and then I followed a youtube tutorial for the construction of the pop-up box card. Cutting my pieces in accordance to the measurements for using with a standard size envelope. The picture below shows the measurements for each of the pieces you will need:
- 1 piece at 9 1/4″ X 5 1/2″
- 1 piece at 3 3/4″ X 2″
- 2 pieces at 5 1/4″ X 2″ (1 of these should be white for writing a message on)
- 3 pieces at 2 3/4″ X 2″
- 6 pieces at 2 3/8″ X 2 (may make these of 2 different color or designs)
Once you have those cut it is time to go on and score the pieces for forming the box part of the card. I purchase myself a scoring board which sure is a nifty item, works great for scoring my pieces right at the needed markings. You will need to score the 9 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ piece on the long side at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″, 6 3/8″ & 8 1/2,” then turn to the short end and score at 2 1/2″. Then take the 3 3/4″ X 2″ and score on long side at 3/4″ and 3″, turn and score at the middle, fold each end that was score into a zig zap shape. Once your pieces are scored it is time to cut your large piece so that it will form your box, cut it up on the 2 1/2″ score line on the larger piece. Cut off the extra tab and trim off corner of tab for a nice clean edge, and then you will see your box start to take form.
Now that we have those pieces scored and cut it is time to place the other pieces into their perspective spots. I am going to post the pictures of my pieces but the best way to see how to do this is to follow this great youtube of how to make the “Amazing Fun Pop-Up Box Cards”. I would try to explain all these steps but I am really a visual person and it is just easier to watch a demonstration then have to explain it. To secure my pieces into place I used Craft Easy-Tear Tape that I purchased at Micheals Craft Store.
I know this isn’t a complete tutorial on how to make this card but it is an introductory to perk your interest, if you go to the youtube that I have put the link to you will see the full instructions and also see how “Amazing Fun Pop-Up Box Cards” are to make.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make the “Amazing Fun Pop-Up Box Cards”. Make sure to pick up a scoring board to make this diy a smooth easy project.
