Pop-Up Box Card: Make It Simple – a Video Tutorial

Pop-Up Box Card Made Easy: Video Tutorial by LovenStamps

I’ve been seeing these Pop-Up Box cards around for the last couple of months.  But honestly, the first time I looked at one, I thought, “No way.”  I figured they were way too complicated for my tastes.  I’m a fan of simple stamping.  But then I finally saw one created in person at our demonstrator Stamp & Share event last month, and I was inspired!  I couldn’t wait to get home and make one myself!

I changed the dimensions a bit from what I was shown — again, simple for me, thanks.  Since then, I’ve designed several… you might say they are a bit of an addiction for me now! And I’m in love with this card, using elements from the Happenings Simply Created Card Kit (133329) and elements from my March Stamps in the Mail Club card kit, including the Says It All stamp set (133173).

Actually, if you purchase the March SITM kit, you’ll be making this card at home!

Pop-Up Box Card: Video tutorial on making these fabulous cards simple, from LovenStamps

Would you like to see it in action?  Here’s a video tutorial on creating this fun Pop-Up Box Card (made simple).  Because you know me… if there’s way to simplify, I’m all for it!

Need my Pop-Up Box Card dimensions again?

  • The main card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (yup, a simple half sheet).
  • The scoring is at 2, 4, 6 and 8″ (again, simple).
  • Turn the card sideways and score in the middle at 2 3/4″ (siiiimple…)
  • The insert piece is 2 3/4″ x 3″ and you’ll score at 1/2″ and 2-1/2″.

See?  It’s painless!  Believe me, if I can do it, then you can do it :)  And it’s even easier if you just get my March Stamps in the Mail Club Kit.

  1. I just discovered you on YouTube and followed your video to the blog for the dimensions on this card. I’m so glad I found it because most of these cards did not fit in an A2 envelope. I did want to mention I found a mistake in your blog. When you had the scoring directions for the insert you wrote 1/2 ” and 3″…… Your video said 1/2 and 2 1/2.
    I hope that makes sense….. I look forward to watching your YouTube videos. Keep up the creative work!

    • Eek! Thanks Tracy! I will get that edited – and so glad you found a card design that will work! Have fun with these

  2. Hi Meg….. Gorgeous pop up card. What kind of glue are you using … Greenly/Greenway ? Can’t quite capture it on the video. Thanks !!

      • I had the same question………I even looked for “Green something” glue at the craft store. Why, when doing a video for the public, would you use your pet “nickname” for a product?? Think about it…… it means nothing to anyone other than you………and causes frustration.

        • Hi Mary! My apologies for the confusion! The products I use are all available from my Stampin’ Up! online store – or at least were at the time I created the video. Over time, things occasionally change name or packaging, so sometimes I refer to something by a different name, but I do try to make sure to use the ‘official’ name in the same sentence or two. Sometimes I get so excited about a project that I miss a name. If you ever can’t find something in my online store, I’m only an email or a comment away! Happy Stamping! – Meg

  3. I don’t have a kit – could you advise the measurements for the flap panels (chevron/DSP)?
    BTW..this is THE easiest tutorial EVER! Well done ?

    – Tarsh

    • Hi Tarsh – Just left you another note – the chevron panels are 1-3/4″ x 2-3/4″. And I’m so glad you’re finding the tutorial helpful!! So many fun ideas – so much nicer when they’re not so complicated to figure out :) Happy Stamping! -Meg

  4. Hi Meg – I want to make this box from scratch..what would the dimensions be for the chevron panels?

    btw: this looks sooo much easire than other tutorials I’ve tried to follow :)

    • Have fun making your own version! The chevron panels are 1-3/4″ x 2-3/4″. Happy Stamping! -Meg

  5. Wow you are amazing ?????? your video is simple n easy to understand ??gonna try this tonite ,thanks so much ??

  6. What is the measurement for the back piece you put on the back of the card. You show it but you never said a measurement for it . Thank you

    • The back panel is 5-1/4″ x 1-3/4″ (sized down to fit on a 2″ x 5-1/2″ face of the card). Happy Stamping! -Meg

  7. Loved the video and instructions are really easy to understand. Thank you so much. I’ll put my project soon.
