Pop up box cards are such fun to make! Using the Die’sire Only Word dies you could create this card for so many different occasions it doesn’t have to be a Thank You card! This design would make a fabulous wedding card too. See how you can easily make this card yourself with this fabulous tutorial from Donna Mosely . Let’s get started.


Step 1: Using Centura Pearl Cardstock cut 2 pieces measuring 14.5cm x 21cm.

Step 8: Cut 2 pieces measuring 4cm x 16.5 cm and score at 1.5cm at each end. Glue both inside the box card as shown. These will be used to attach the embellishments

Step 9: Here comes the fun bit. Print of a selection on papers & card companions from the Sugar & Spice section of the free CD-ROM from the Crafter’s Inspiration Magazine Issue 10. Matt and layer the patterned papers onto the front, back and flaps of the box card.

Step 10: Cut two Floral Vine Edges out of Centura Pearl card and attach each one to one of the pieces of card inside the box.

Step 11: Using various flower & foliage dies from Sara Signature Floral Delight collection and some of the printed patterned papers, cut as many flowers as you wish. Attach these to the Floral Vine Edge.

Step 12: Cut out some toppers & tags from your printed sheets and decorate the front and side flaps of the box.
