How to make a pop up box card


Good evening everyone, hope you are enjoying the long weekend.  I have been catching up with some DT work and playing with all some inkiness, all of which I will show you over the next few weeks.  Just wanted to show you this pop up box card made with Papermill coloured card in various flowery colours.  

Pop up box cards are very popular at the moment, wherever you look there are so many in different sizes and subjects.  For all of you who want to have a go but don't known where to begin I have put together a tutorial showing you the basics for making one of these very addictive shaped cards, you can find it HERE on the Papermill blog.


I used Papermill coloured card in pastel colours, baby pink, daffodil yellow, new lilac and spring green for the base and the flowers.  The sides were covered with digital papers from Pink Petticoat printed onto Papermill white linen paper, Memory Box dies and a computer generated sentiment.

Off again to finish what I started this morning, I have the grandchildren for a few days and I'm sure they will help me.  Sophie has already asked for some card to make a guitar, goodness knows what she will come up with!!  Hope to get some commenting done this evening and check out what you have all been up to this weekend too.
