Flower Patch Pop-Up Box Card

Flower Patch Pop-Up Box Card

This is another pop-up box card I created, but was inspired by one that Amanda Bates made, so wanted to make one of my own with the current flowers sets and the butterfly punches.  Her measurements were different than mine and I wanted to create one that would fit into an A2 envelope that we sell.  Here are the instructions for making my card. 

Stamp Sets:  Flower Patch, Petite Petals, Petite Pairs
Cardstock:  Pool Party, Garden Green, Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Soft Subtles DSP Stacks
Ink:  Basic Black or Memento Black
Other:  Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, 1¼” Scallop Circle Punch, 1” Circle Punch, Flower Flair Framelits Die, Rhinestones and Pearls Basic Jewels, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Sticky Strips, Glue Dots, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Fringe Scissors, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch
1.      Pool Party cardstock is the cut at 8 ½” x 5 ½” and scored landscape on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool at 2”, 4”, 6”, 8” which leaves ½” on one side.  This makes the perfect size to fit inside an A2 envelope to mail.
2.    Turn the cardstock to portrait on the Simply Scoring Tool and score at 2½”.  You can leave the slat next to the ½” mark not scored so that it will stand up for the back of your pop-up box card.
3.    Use the Bone Folder to crease all scored lines.
4.    Trim off part of the ½” narrow section at the middle 2½” scored line. Use Paper Snips to cut up to the scored lines.
5.    Insert each 2” inch slat into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create scalloped edge on all four sides.
6.    Use adhesive on the ½” slat that is left and attach to the other side to form your box card.
7.    Cut the Pool Party DSP at
8.    Cut out two small tabs of Garden Green cardstock to go inside the box card.  They are cut at 3 ½” x 1” and scored at 5/8” on each end.  Fold and crease scored ends to make a “Z” inside the box card for the front and back.
9.    Now you are ready to decorate with stamps, DSP and punches as you wish. The butterflies are attached with  a small piece of a window sheet and glue dots.
