It Starts with Art Pop Up Box Cards - Greek Isles 3D Swaps

Hi gorgeous!

How are you today? Thanks so much for checking out my post. Today I'm hopping with Kylie's Demo Training & as we speak, we are cruising through the Greek Isles on our first Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip! How exciting is that! And I've got to say, in all honesty, I would not have had the skills or the faith in myself to achieve this trip without the support from this fantastic group. Make sure you see the list below & hop all the way around this month's hop participants & beautiful projects.

So, today I'm showing you the little It Starts with Art Pop Up Box Cards I made fro the Greek Isles 3D Swaps. They're supposed to be like the boxes we receive from Stampin Up with our orders in them! I thought I would make my own boxes with Crumb Cake cardstock & the Stampin' Up! Logo washi tape, but you can also buy some very similar ready made, in the 2019 Annual Catalog.

I've used Shimmer Black to heat embossed the sentiment. The items are stamped with Memento Black on the new In Colour cardstocks & die cut with the coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies, that come in the It Starts with Art Bundle.


  1. To make the box, take a sheet of A4 cardstock & cut in half at 10.5cm, then score 5cm. Turn & score at 29cm, 22cm, 14.5cm & 7.5cm. 
  2. Go back over the four score lines & cut the top half down to the 5cm scoreline & trim off the top half of the 29cm score line to make a tab on the bottom half. Burnish all the score lines. 
  3. Put some glue on the tab & fold the card closed over the tab to adhere it. Pop it open to the box. 
  4. Cut some lengths of cardstock or window sheets to 10cm x 1.5cm & score them at 1.5cm in from each end. These will make the supports to adhere your decorations onto. Adhere them into the box.
  5. Glue your decorations onto the supports, making them lower at the front & higher at the back. You can choose to adhere the back flat to the back decoration if you want it to stay upright, or leave the flap to hang at the bottom. 
  6. Optional - you can add a piece of cardstock at the back of the box, to write your message on or add some Designer Series Paper in coordinating colours to the flaps.
