Cute Pop Up Box Card

Hi everyone here is a very cute pop-up box card I’ve made using the supplies from my Hobbybase July kit.

Pop Up Box Card For The Love Of Stamps "Under The Sea"

I think by now you can tell that I adore this stamp set, and I have ordered more stamps from “For the Love of Stamps” so watch out for more fun cards like these.

Pop Up Box Card For The Love Of Stamps "Under The Sea"

Pop Up Box Cards are a very popular card style and lots of fun make.

This is the smallest version I’ve made with a 2″ x 2″ base and just over 4.1/2 tall.

The tall backside is perfect for your sentiment and message.

To make this card you will need…

1 piece of 8.1/4 x 4.1/2 cardstock.

Score along the 8.1/4 side at 2″, 4″, 6″ & 8″ leaving you with a 1/4″ tab on the far right side. Then flip your card over and with your 1/4″ tab along the top score along the 4.1/2 side at 2.1/4 down to the last score line NOT down to the bottom.

3 pieces of 2.1/2 x 3/4″ card for your inside tabs score along the long side at 1/4″ & 2.1/4

For your long back panel, you need 1 piece of 1.7/8 x 4.3/8 and 1 piece of 1.3/4 x 4.1/8

6 pieces of 1.7/8 x 2.1/8 for your small square mats.

6 pieces of 1.3/4 x 1.7/8 to layer on top of your mats.

Acetate to attach your images.

You can purchase the pre-made template I showed in my tutorial separately, here.



Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.


These make perfect birthday cards or just fun paper decorations.

  1. I love this card! Can’t wait to try it!! Can you please tell me what size envelope this would fit in?


  2. Hi Stephanie, when flat the card measures 4.1/2 x 4″, however I’ve put mine in 6 x 6 envelopes as some of my critters over hung slightly. If your using an Envelope Punch Board I would follow the directions for a 4.1/2 x 5″ card size. Hope that helps, Sam 🙂
