Slide And Pop Draw Box

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing project number 2 of this year’s Valentine Series 2019!

Slide and Pop Draw Box

I wanted to decorate up some chocolate bars so decided to make these draws with a fun “pop-up” feature.

This is a fun and inexpensive way to give a little gift this Valentines Day.

The papers are the free downloads available from The Craft Blog.

To make these you will need…

1 piece of 8.1/4 x 7.3/8 cardstock for the outer case.

Score along the 8.1/4 side at 1/2″, then pull your cardstock out very slightly or use the piece of card like I show you in my tutorial and score at 1.1/8, then push your cardstock back and score at 4.3/8, the pull the card out very slightly again and score at 5″

1 piece of 4.1/4 x 8.1/4 cardstock for the tray.

Score on all 4 sides at 1/2″

The cardstock I used is the 300gsm smooth white card from Papermill Direct.

1 piece of 3″ x 7.1/8 pattern paper to decorate the top of the case.

1 piece of acetate, the size is up to you, I used 3/4″ x 6″

Embellishments to decorate, I fussy cut some of the cutouts from the free papers.

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

It’s a nice surprise for the receiver, as they will look at it thinking its just a nice gift box and then find the fun pop-up when they open it!

  1. This is so cute, my grandchildren would love it! Where do you come up with so many great ideas? BTW I love The Frugal Crafter Also.

  2. Sam, I love this idea. I don’t like to give the children too much chocolate at Easter so this will be brilliant as the chocolate part of their Easter surprise. It will fit any occasion though by just changing the pop up message. Thanks Sam, another brilliant project.

  3. Hi Pamela, thank you for you’re kind comment. I’ve always been creative I guess, my father is very artistic and my mum is a crafter also. I’m so pleased your enjoying my tutorials 🙂

  4. Loved this project! You make things relaxed and enjoyable! Thank you!
