Robot Pop Up Box Card

This card is so easy to make and yet looks so effective and fun. It can be adapted to suit yours or the recipicants personality or even just to suit what crafty items you have in your current stash.

Tools I used

A4 card stock
Double sided tape
Glitter cardstock 2 1/2inch x 5 inch
3 Pieces of Patterned paper 2 1/2 inch × 2 1/2 inch
2 pieces of card the same colour as the A4 card stock (3 3/4 Inch x 3/4 Inch)
For The Love of Stamps Misfit Robots ( Hunkydory) 
Scoreboard (The Adorable Scorboard)
Paper trimmer (So Crafty -Aldi)
Alcohol markers (Spectrum Noir Tri-blend)
Wet glue (Mod Podge)
Acetate ( Old easter egg packet or coke bottle)
Stamp press (Stamp Easy)
Stamp Ink
Glue gun
Bunting die
Embellishment pegs


To begin I stamped a number of robots using the Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps Misfit Robots ( )

 and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers which I purchased from Crafters Companion (

Making the Card

Trim a piece of A4 Card stock to 7 1/4 inch by 11 5/8 inch 

 Score at 2 3/4 Inch, 5 1/2 Inch, 8 1/4 Inch and 11 Inch

Score the length of the paper at 3 Inches down the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th columns. (See the dotted green line on the diagram below)

Cut down to the 3 inch score line, down the 5 original score lines (see diagram below)

On the shortest Column trim off the edge to make a tab

Stick the glitter card to the column that you are not scored 

 And using double sided tape stick the tab to the inside edge of the 1st coloum 

This gives you the basis for the card. You can decorate the folded down tabs using the 2.5 inch by 2.5 inch patterned paper

You now need to make 2 panels to go inside to secure your decorations. For this I used 2 pieces of card the same colour as the box. These messured 3 3/4 Inch by 3/4 Inch and were scored at 1/2 Inch and 3 1/4 Inch. Using wet glue these were then secured into the box

I decorated the box using a few of my stamped out robots  and then used a hot glue gun to attach the final 2 robots to the acatate to make them stand up higher

Using a bunting die and my big shot machine, I cut a piece of paper bunting attaching it in the same way as the robots 

A stamped sentiment and 2 small silver peg embellishments are the finishing touches needed
