My project today is a paper flower pop up box that I made from flowers that were left over from other projects. I don’t know about you but I always have good intentions to save left over odds and ends and then forget all about them.  All of the flowers you see here were in a bowl on my desk so I decided to experiment by arranging them in a pop up box.  I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to arrange them in a natural looking design or if they were going to look all crammed in the box.  LOL!  Normally I wouldn’t put all those bright colors together in one project but I think they really pretty paired with the bright yellow and white box.

Assemble the 3D Pop Up Box Base

  • Cut the layering pieces.  The designer paper I used iis by Papertrey. 
  •  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
  • Attach the paper layers to the inside and outside card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the box tab, line it up and secure the box closed.
  • Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the  white tabs on both sides and insert them inside the box.
  • Note:  I use the Be Creative double stick tape on the tabs because it is much stronger than the ATG adhesive.  I like to use the ATG adhesive on layering paper because it is fast and easy.

The Paper Flowers

All the flowers in the box were formed with paper shaping tools.   You can see my Paper Shaping video tutorial to see how I formed the large lavender flower in the box. I used the same technique using the needle nose pliers to create the large yellow flower in the front.  All the rest were made using a molding pad and stylus.  I attached all the different flower sections together using glossy accents.

Arranging the Flowers in the Box

I arranged and attached some of the large foliage pieces to the back side and front side of the box before to fill in before attaching  the flowers.  The flowers were attached to the back, middle and front of the box using glossy accents.  Once the flowers were attached I tucked additional foliage pieces in and around them and attached them with glossy accents.
