Creating Pop-Up Box

Pop-Up Box Card
1)      Cut cream cardstock to 8.5” x 12”
2)      Score on the long side at 2.75”, 5.5”, 8.25”, 11”
3)      At the bottom of the scored cardstock cut off a 2” x 12” strip and set aside (will be used later)

4)      Turn the 6.5” x 12” panel turn 90°, score at 2.75”
5)      Cut down 2.75” to this scoreline along each of the 4 perpendicular score lines
6)      Cut a slight angle up from the edge of the cardstock at the 11” scoreline and create a tab
7)      Cut the 2” x 12” strip (that was set aside) at 4.75” from the end with the 1” scoreline
8)      Cut the 2” x 4.75” strip in half long way to create two strips, 1” x 4.75”  (both strips should be scored at 1” from each end –fold both tabs back)

Black Cardstock Paper (for each panel)
  • Cut 2 panels                                        2.5” x 6.25”
  • Cut 3 lower panels                              2.5” x 3.5”
  • Cut 6 upper panels                              2.5” x 2.5”

c)      Using a finger dauber with Tim Holtz Brushed Coudory ink on it, wipe the white paper back and forth covering the high spots
d)     Attach your antiqued white paper to the black panels on the pop-up card box

Building Pop-Up Box
a)      Fold the pop-up box card on the 5.5” scoreline and attach the tab inside with adhesive
b)      Fold back the three top flaps that have the single squares, so they are hanging down (leaving the rectangle panel standing tall as the back)

c)      Apply adhesive to the end tabs of the 1” x 4.75” strips (that were set aside prior), adhere them to the inside of the opened box, making them parallel with the back panel (see photo)
d)     Turning both tabs toward the outside (front or back of the box) will help to ensure straight placement to create stabalizers –these will be used to attach your embellishments to
