Pop-Up Box Cards (or Card in a Box)

These pop-up box cards seem to be very popular right now, and after making a few of them I know why. Firstly, they are so fun to look at. Secondly, they fold flat so you can slip it into an envelope for mailing. And, they are so easy to make, and can be made and personalized for virtually any occasion. This first one I'm posting was for a 60th birthday of a good friend, whose name is also Deb.
All of the elements came from SVG Cuts' The Green Room SVG Kit. The finished box is just over 6" tall. There is another panel on the very back where I put a sentiment and signed it.
The next one was made for my sis-in-law.  I printed a photo of her as a baby and used that for the front panel.
Here you can see how it folds down flat. There is no bottom on the box, so it's folds very easily. I made the envelope for it with the Envelope Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers.
And, here's the back of this one.
Here's another one made for a friend's birthday. I love the beach/underwater theme.

On the back of this one I made a little pocket where I made a couple of tickets for an event and lunch.
Here's one made for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I used my own cut file for the box itself, but the darling elements and design came from SVG Cuts' Box Cards SVG Kit. There are five different box cards in the kit, each one as darling as the next.
And, here's one more that I made for a graduation. You can make these for pretty much any occasion at all. The sky's the limit! There was a little pocket on the back side where some $$ was inserted. I made the 2014 background design paper myself.

The papers I used for all of the boxes was digi paper (and elements) purchased from Jessica Sprague and solid A/C card stock and Bazzill card stock. I made the pattern for this box myself. You can find tutorials on youtube. Or, if you purchase the SVG Cuts kits, they come with not only the decorated boxes with the elements, but also the basic boxes so that you can design your own.

Sending Wishes in a Box!
