Matchbox pop-up card

Hello Everyone!

Today at the blog I am again with yet another Valentine's project. 

A Matchbox pop-up card to express your love!!

If you wish to make one similar to this follow the steps given below.

To begin with 
  • I took a Black cardstock (Approx. 7.5" x 3.5") 
  • Score the paper at the intervals of 1/2", 3.5", 4", 7" (Basicallly dividing the paper as shown in the diagram)
  • Fold the papers at every interval and stick the ends to form the cover for the matchbox. (Sorry guys....I forgot to click pictures while making it...Please refer the hand-drawn instructions...hope they help :(....)

  • Cut a pattern paper a little smaller than the top size. Stick it on the top.
  • Take another cardstock approx. 4" x 4.5"
  • Score at 1/2" on all 4 sides. 
  • Trim and fold up the sides and glue together to form a box.  

  • Next take 3 strips of size 3" x 1/2" and score them in the centre.
  • Fold them in half and stick one end of each into the box. These become the stand for our pop-ups
  • Now cut hearts of different sizes and different patterned papers. 
  • Arrange them on the stands inside the box. 
  • Stick them randomly over one other (Make sure they all fit into the box with they are pushed down)
  • Stick a pop-up sentiment.
  • Insert this box into the cover we made earlier.
  • Decorate the top of the cover.
  • Tie a ribbon around the cover.
  • Stamp and cut a sentiment. Add a tiny heart.

There the Pop-up matchbox card is ready!!

 Thank you for hopping over my blog.
Hope to see you soon.
