Good Monday morning. Today I’m sharing a colorful pop up flower garden box card filled with lots of different die cut flowers made by Rubbernecker Stamps. The box was made using The Paper Cut Square Pop Up Box and covered with two coordinating designer papers. The box was filled using the Mixable Flower Stack, Flowers #3, Flowers #7, Flowers #2, Flower Buds, Tiny Flower Buds, Leaf Group, Large Ivy, Grass Set, and I added the Picket Fence, Small Butterflies and Watering Can on the box flaps.
The Box Base and Layers
- Use the bone folder to reinforce all the score lines .
- Cut the designer paper layering pieces.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of all the layering pieces and attach to the inside back cover and flaps and the outside sections of the box sections.
- Apply double stick tape to the side insert flap, line the box sides up and attach the two ends together to form the box.
- Cut grass insert sections using green cardstockCut, score both ends at 1/2″ in.
- Fold the grass insert tabs, apply double stick tape to each tab and insert the tabs to the inside of the box.
- Note: The kit comes with three inserts for each box. I used five grass strips instead of three to create a fuller looking grass are in the opening.
The Flowers and Foliage
- Cut several sections of the large ivy and leaf group dies using green cardstock.
- Cut the flowers using bright colored cardstock that matches the designer paper.
- Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad.
- Assemble the multi layered flowers and attach using glossy accents.
- Attach the flower buds to the ivy and leaf sections using glossy accents.
Assemble the Garden
- Begin filling the box with the larger flowers, attaching them to the back wall and grass sections using glossy accents.
- Attach ivy and flower sections to the back wall to fill in around the large flowers.
- Attach foliage and flower sections to the front rows of grass using glossy accents to fill in the garden.
The Fence, Watering Can and Butterflies
- Cut the fence sections using white cardstock and attach to the box flaps using double stick tape along the bottom and a few small pieces of mounting tape across the top pickets.
- Attach the grass sections to the fence using double stick tape.
- Cut the watering can using gray cardstock and apply Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge ink with a mini applicator.
- Fill in the watering can with leaf sections and flowers to create a small bouquet.
- Tuck the watering can in behind the grass and attach with a piece of mounting tape.
- Tuck small leaf and flowers sections in behind the grass on all three flaps and attach with glossy accents.
- Finish by attaching the small butterflies to the flaps using glossy accents.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my pop up flower garden box card. I had so much fun picking out the designer papers, cardstock and dies. The box layering papers are a little busy but I like how the flowers in the garden carry on the colors and flower theme of the paper. Have you had a chance to check out all the different card kits at The Paper Cut? There are so many great choices and the kits take all the guess work out of making dimensional 3D car
