Pop-Up Aquarium Box Cards

Hi everyone, I have been blown away seeing all the amazing cards you have been making with my latest Papercraft Society kit, it’s really lovely to see others enjoying it and sharing what they’ve made.

If you are new to my page, the Papercraft Society is a monthly subscription kit with a different designer each month.

This is the second box I’ve designed for them and this one has an underwater theme and has dies for you to make ‘Penny’ Slider cards.

My kit has now gone out to all the subscribers, however there is a little stock left, so it’s now available as open stock here.

Here’s one of the Penny Slider cards I made for the inspiration booklet in the kit.

You can also make this fun tactile gel filled card.

Below is the Pop Up Aquarium card I recently made, however if you don’t have the kit you could turn this into a greenhouse or terrarium.

Pop-Up Aquarium Box Card

This is a variation of the Pop-Up box cards which are very popular. It will fold flat, but I think this will be better in one of my box envelopes here or even in a little gift bag.


1 piece of 4′ x 6′ card for the back

1 piece of 9′ x 4′ acetate.

Score along the 9′ side at 1/2′ & 2.1/2 at each end.

1 strip of 1′ x 11′ card and 1 strip of 1/4 X 11′ card to wrap around the top and bottom of the acetate.

2-3 strips of 1′ x 5′ card for the bars.

Score along the 5′ side at 1/2′ & 4.1/2

1 piece of 4′ x 4′ pattern paper for the  background
