Crafty Today: Birthday Pop Up Box Card

Make a wish!

These pop up box cards are all over Pinterest and I have been obsessed with them for about two years.  I will share my cheater way of creating these fabulous cards without using rubber stamps.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

  • Jillibean Soup paper
  • Jillibean Pea Pod Parts
  • cardstock
  • scoring board
  • adhesive
  • foam dots and tape

Follow this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers to create the box.  Add assorted pea pod parts to the flaps, straps and inside front of card using the foam tape and dots.  Add embellishment and sentiment to the back of the card.

You want to add the pod parts to the straps in ascending order so it doesn’t block the inside front of the card.  Also, having varying thicknesses of foam tape and dots gives you the flexibility to stack the pod parts and adds emphasis.  I used my favorite Cricut cartridge, Tiny Treasures, to create the 80 on the inside front of the card.  You also can make an envelope for this card using the Envelope Punch Board and choosing size 6×7.  This card has enormous wow factor so you should make it for that special person in your life that will truly appreciate it.  I created this card for my mother-in-law and she had it on view for weeks.  I hope you try it!
