Gift Card Pop Up Boxes

 Hello and welcome! On my blog today is this fantastic pop-up card box! Karen Burniston recently added some templates to her online store that you can get which gives you the directions to make these absolutely, hands down, amazing pop-up card boxes. As soon as I seen the video she posted I went online to my nearest craft store and bought the patterned paper she used (because swoon!) and downloaded the instructions. I spent my entire weekend in my office making these amazing boxes! 

I wanted to turn these card boxes into gift card boxes. This is such a neat way to give someone a gift card this holiday season! For this first box, I decided on a pop-up snowman. 

The paper I chose, came from Echo Park and it's called Snowed In. This paper pack comes with a sheet of different winter themed squares that fit perfectly on the top of these boxes. That's why I made sure to buy the same paper. 

I chose a sheet of patterned paper from the paper pack and used both sides to create the inserts and side panels for this box. 

I used 110lb heavy weight black cardstock to make the box. You can get the instructions from Karen Burniston by clicking here to visit her store. 

I used Karen Burniston's Bitty Ball and Mini Ball Pop-Up dies along with the Snowman Add-On dies to create this super cute pop-up snowman. 

For the gift card holder, I used My Favorite Things Gift Card Pocket. Then I added the "To" and "From" using My Favorite Things Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics

I think when I make more of these (because I've already been requested to make more!) I will print a nicer "To" and "From" on my computer and die cut it out to add on to the gift card pocket. 

I loved how this one turned out so much, that I had to make a second one. To watch the pop-up in action, see the video below. 

For the second box, I used 110lb heavy weight smooth white cardstock and this time I made 5 "snowballs" using Karen Burniston's Mini Ball Pop-Up and sparkly white cardstock. 

I followed all the same steps, except when the recipient opens this box, snowballs pop out! 

I had an absolute blast making these boxes and I can't wait to make more! This was an incredible idea and I hope that this has inspired you to make some of these as well! Thank you so much for stopping by and as always Happy Crafting!
