Today I’m sharing fall pop up box card ideas using several of the newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. Yesterday I posted a Z Fold cornfield card with an old flatbed truck, crows and cats. My project today has a field of corn with the main focal image being on the fun scarecrow in the background. I filled all three flaps of the box with a fence, pumpkins, corn and squirrels to carry on the fall theme. I love the crows that come with the scarecrow set and I had to add a few more to the flaps. Any of the fall components of this card could be used as main focal images for fall cards.
For this project I used the Scarecrow, Corn Stalks, Picket Fence, Pumpkins and Ivy, Apples, Pears and Corn, Wagon, Baskets, Birds, Chickens and Squirrels, Grass, and Small Ivy. I used The Paper Cut Square Pop Up Box Kit for my card base.
The Box Base and Layers
- Use the bone folder to reinforce all the score lines .
- Cut the designer paper layering pieces.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the back of all the layering pieces and attach to the inside and outside sections and flaps.
- 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 and fence sections to fit the three flaps and attach with double stick tape.
- Cut grass insert sections to fit the insert fronts and attach using double stick tape. Score both ends at 1/2″ in.
- Cut several sections of cornstalks and attach to the back of the insert layers using glossy accents.
- Apply double stick tape to each tab and insert the tabs to the inside of the box.
- The designer paper layer sizes:
- 2 5 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ layers
- 2 3 5/8″ x 2 3/4″ layers
- 4 1 7/8″ x 2 3/4″ layers
The Scarecrow, Wagon and Veggies
- Cut the scarecrow sections and assemble using glossy accents and mounting tape.
- Attach the scarecrow to the back of the card using a triple layer of mounting tape.
- Use gray cardstock to cut the wheelbarrow, apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink using mini applicators and attach to the front flap using mounting tape..
- Cut the pumpkins and squash using yellow cardstock and apply Spiced Marmalade and Crushed Olive ink using mini applicators.
- Use woodgrain paper to cut the basket, apply Antique Linen ink with a mini applicator and assemble using glossy accents.
- Cut corn and husks using yellow and green cardstock, assemble the pieces using glossy accents and attach corn using glossy accents.
- Tuck the corn basket and squash in the wagon and attach to the flap base using mounting tape.
- Tuck the pumpkins in behind the grass and attach to the flap bases using mounting tape.
The Squirrels, Crows and Ivy
- Cut the squirrels using white cardstock and apply color using Pumice Stone and Antique Linen ink and mini applicators.
- Attach the squirrels to the flaps using pieces of mounting tape.
- Use black cardstock to cut the crows and attach them to the flaps using small pieces of mounting tape.
- Cut several pieces of small ivy and tuck them in behind the pumpkins and attach using glossy accents.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project with fall pop up box card ideas. The front and side flap mini scenes could all easily be the main focal point of a regular A2 sized card.
