Another Box Fold Pop Up Card for Spring

Today I have another box fold pop up card to share. Now this LOOKS crazy complicated but using the gorgeous, detailed dies from Rubbernecker and a pre scored pop up box card you can add a ton of detail with just a few cuts and some well placed adhesive.

I shared another pop up card in this post and I am just loving this whole crazy gorgeous spring kick I am on! Maybe it’s because it was actually so cold here in Florida! Please remember as you look at these that I am letting the dies and the card bases do all the work and just having fun with the critters and flowers. Know that yours WILL look different and it WILL be fabulous!

For this project I used the Winter Tree, Picket Fence, Bunnies, Grass, Leaf Buds, Small Flowers #1, Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds and Small Birds.  All of these dies are on SALE over at Rubbernecker.  Hop on over and check out the STORE WIDE SALE that includes products in all categories and cross items off of your wish list.

Assemble the 3D Pop Up Box Base

  • Cut the designer paper layering pieces.
    • 2   2″ x 5 3/8″
    •   2″ x 2 5/8″
  • Attach the paper layers to the inside and outside card base using double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the tab, line it up and secure the box closed.
  • Cut the grass sections to fit the tabs included in the kit and attach them with double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the tabs on both sides and insert them inside the box.
  • Use white cardstock to cut fence sections and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Cut an additional grass and attach to the inside front of the box using double stick tape.
  • Attach the fence to the inside of the box using double stick tape.
  • Cut additional grass sections and then attach them to the box flaps using double stick tape.

The Tree

  • Use Kraft cardstock to cut the 3 tree sections and green cardstock to cut the buds.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to one tree by swiping the ink pad directly over the cardstock.
  • Attach the three tree sections together using glossy accents.  Note:  I used three layered trees to make it strong enough to stand up in the card.
  • Attach the tiny leaf buds to the branches using glossy accents.
  • Cut small flowers using pink cardstock and apply Worn Lipstick ink to create flowers that match the designer paper.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flowers to the tree branches using glossy accents and leave the remaining flowers to use on the box flaps.
  • Apply glossy accents to the front of the tree trunk and attach it to one of the grass layers inside the box. Note:  I wanted the tree to stand on it’s own and not be attached to the back wall of the box.  I thought it created the appearance of more dimension.

The Flowers, Birds and Bunnies

  • Cut several sections of ivy and attach flowers using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the ivy and flowers in behind the grass sections on the box flaps and attach using glossy accents.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the bunnies and color them using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.
  • Tuck the bunnies in behind the grass layers on the box flaps and attach them using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach one bunny inside the box using glossy accents.
  • Decorate the bunny on the center box flap using a tiny leaf bud and tiny flower bud and attach using glossy accents.
  • Cut small birds using yellow cardstock and lightly color them using Wild Honey ink and a mini applicator.
  • Attach the birds to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
