Paper Flower Pop Up Box

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.

This flower garden pop up box is so sweet and looks complicated but it was really easy to make.

Pop Up Box Card Blanks Dressed Up!

I like a shortcut as much as the next person and I am totally not ashamed to say that today’s project started with a package of pop up box card blanks from The Paper Cuts. These pre-cut, pre-folded, pre-everything-but-the-fun part cards are a lifesaver and today we are going to see how using those and some stinkin’ adorable  goodies from Rubbernecker can help you look like a papercrafting genius!

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Winter Lamp Post, Park Bench, Wrought Iron Fence, Grass, Ducks, Small Ivy, Small Flowers #1, Small Butterflies and Tiny Flower Buds.

This adorable spring project started with some pop up box card blanks - click through to see more!

Assemble the 3D Pop Up Box Base

  • Cut the layering pieces.  The designer paper I used is from the Carta Bella Spring Market collection and the grass layers were made using  green cardstock.
  •  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.
  • Cut the green grass sections to fit the tabs included in the kit and attach them with ATG adhesive.
  • Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the 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.

I used plain old pop up box card blanks to create this card - click through to see how!

The Lamp Posts, Fence, Bench and Grass Layers

  • Use black cardstock to cut the lamp post, fence sections and bench and green cardstock to cut the grass sections for the box flaps..
  • Cut the lamp inner sections using vellum and attach them to the back of the lamps using glossy accents.
  • Tuck one fence section in behind the back grass layer and attach it to the back wall using glossy accents.
  • Apply small strips of mounting tape to the back of the lamp post and attach it to the back card base.
  • Attach the park bench to a grass layer inside the box using glossy accents.
  • Use double stick to attach the fence and grass sections to the three box flaps.

This only LOOKS like an architectural feat - click through to see how used pop up box card blanks to make it!

The Ducks, Flowers and Butterflies

  • Use white and yellow cardstock to cut the mother and baby ducks and yellow cardstock to cut the butterflies.
  • Color the baby ducks and small butterflies using a mini applicator and Wild Honey ink.
  • Use a mini applicator and Wild Honey to color the beak and legs of the mother duck.
  • Cut the flowers using yellow, purple and pink cardstock.  Apply touches of Worn Lipstick ink to the pink flowers to make them a better match for the pink flowers on the designer paper.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the small ivy sections.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy sections using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the ivy and flowers stems in behind the grass layers on the box flaps and inner box grass sections and attach using glossy accents.
  • Create a small flower wreath with ivy and flowers and attach to the lamp post using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the ducks and attach them to the box flap. Tuck two ducks in behind the grass sections in the inner box and attach using glossy accents.

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.

Check out this box fold pop up card - click through to see how I let the Rubbernecker dies do the work for me!

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.

Santa Stuck in the Chimney Box

My project today is a funny Santa stuck in the chimney box.  I’ve had this idea running around in my head since I got the Santa Stuck die set from Rubbernecker.   I tried like crazy to figure out how to add it to a card that opens but I wasn’t smart enough for that.  My husband loves Godiva Cherry Cordials so I thought I would hide a few inside the box every couple of days during the holidays.  I paired the Stuck Santa with the Deckle Hills, Greenery #1, Globe Tree #1 (lights) and the Enjoy the Magic sentiment.  Oh….if you are wondering how come my sentiment is so small,  I stamped the it on a piece of white  Shrinky Dink Srhinkable Plastic.  I hadn’t thought of this product in years and was inspired to use it again by my friend, Julie Warner.  It’s a perfect way to decrease the size of your favorite sentiment when you would like it to fit in a smaller space. 

Come see how I made this fun Santa stuck in the chimney box card.

The Box

  • Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock 8.50″ x 3.00″ and a piece of black cardstock 2.75″ x 1.00″. Note:  if I make this again I will cut the size of the box down to 1.50″ square to be a better fit for this Santa.
  • Secure a brick stencil in place over your cardstock using Eclipse or painter’s tape.
  • Apply Antique Linen, Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge, Pumice Stone and Vintage Photo inks to the cardstock using blender brushes and mini applicators.  Note:  I used the large blender brush to apply the Antique Linen and Fired Brick and then went in with the mini applicators to add the touches of different color shading with Rusty Hinge, Pumice Stone and Vintage Photo.
  • Remove stencil, line it up on the rest of the cardstock, secure in place and repeat the steps above.
  • Score the cardstock at 2:00″, 4.00″, 6.00″ and 8:00″ and then use bone folder to sharpen the folds.
  • Score the black cardstock at .50″ from each end.
  • Apply double stick tape to both ends of the box and secure it in place in the middle of the box opening.

The Snow, Wreath and Lights

  • Cut the Deckle Hills layer, score each section just a tad wider than 2.00″ for each section.
  • Attach the snow layer to the box using double stick tape.
  • Cut a small 1.00″ circle using green cardstock, cut the inside center out using scissors to create the wreath base and attach the two ends together using glossy accents. See the picture below but add another .25″ to create a wreath base large enough for the chimney.

2

  • Cut several greenery branches using green cardstock and cut the individual branch sections off to use for the wreath.

3

  • Use glossy accents to attach the branches to the wreath base.  Continue adding branches all the way around the wreath.
  • Punch out red 1/8″ circles and attach them to the wreath using glossy accents.
  • Tie a red multi loop bow and attach it the wreath using glue dots.
  • Finish the wreath by applying touches of red stickles to the red berries.
  • Cut the tiny lights using red, blue, green and yellow cardstock and attach them to gold metallic string using glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the lights using Nuvo shimmer pens.

 

 

Come see how I made this Santa stuck in the chimney box card.

The Sentiment

  • Cut a piece of Shrinky Dink plastic to fit the sentiment.  I used my deckle scissors to cut the plastic out so it would have a textured edge.  
  • Stamp the sentiment using black ink and set aside to dry.
  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  • Place the Shrinky Dink sentiment layer on a piece of parchment paper in a baking pan.
  • Bake the Shrinky Dink for one to three minutes until it shrinks and finishes to a perfectly flat stage.  The process only took mine about 1 1/2 minute but the directions say times may vary with different ovens. They also state it is best to use toaster oven if you have one.

The Santa

  • Cut the Santa pieces using red, white and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Cut an additional piece of red cardstock to fit the Santa and attach it to the waist using glossy accents.  Note: This piece will allow the whole Santa image to stick up out of the chimney and yet be secured in place to the black inside.

Finish the Box

  • Attach the light string to the chimney using touches of glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the wreath and sentiment to the chimney.
  • Finish by applying glossy accents to the Santa and attach it to the black insert piece.
