Pop Up Box Card Template

I have been waiting months now to tell my mum what I'd bought her for her birthday - now that a lot of time to think about how you are going to tell the person and what better way to let someone know you are taking them to see LADY GAGA than to make a pop up box card!!!!


2 different types of coloured card
Strong glue (I used a hot glue gun for speed)
Cricut machine / another die cutter (unless you want to cut by hand)
Pop up box card template (links below)

The Templates

If you are using Cricut Craft room then you'll need the .ccr file

If you are using Design Space or any other die cutting machine that accepts .svg files them please use the two template below - one for basic box card and one for the happy birthday label

Step 1

Cut your card. If you don't have a Cricut then this is the shape you need (you can also work out the sizes from the cutting mat image I've put up in the template section as it has the sizes all round the edge)

Step 2

 Fold the top flaps out the way

Step 3

Then crease lines down the bottom half of the card so you create a box shape, also folding over the small flap on the edge

 Step 4

Glue on your 4 largest rectangles - putting the largest of the 4 next to the edge with the flap

Step 5

 Flip over the card and on the third section away from the flat - glue your birthday message, or any other message you want on the front of your card.

Step 6

 Take the two smallest rectangles and fold both ends over so that it fits inside one of the four sections of the card

Step 7

Glue down one of the folded sides of both rectangles on the second section away from the flap - giving a bit of room at the front and back of the section

Then place glue on the other sides of the folder rectangles and the flap and stick them all down so that the flap joins the card together in a square shape and the middle rectangles form 3 sections inside the box card.

Step 8

Take the pieces you want popping out of your card and glue them to the folded rectangle sections you made inside your card - this gives the box depth.

NOTE: Make sure out of all your large background rectangles, the largest of the 4 is at the back of your card, as this keeps this side of the card up whilst the others fall down.

I put in a photo of myself, my mum and Lady Gaga. I used my laminator to make the photos a bit stiffer so that they sat up straight inside the card.

Step 9

Close your card up and wait to see the surprised look on the recipients face!!! To do this you just new to put up all the flaps and then push it down to the side so that the box is folded in half along the creases you have already made

I'll be back,
