Instructions





Die cut your Gift of Love box base die 4 times using white cardstock, you will have 4 box sides, cut the sides so you are left with only the bottom sections, see picture above.







Fold along the bone fold lines on your side panels. Use a bone folder to get a precise fold. Top flap bends back and the side flap bends towards you, repeat 4 times.  Glue or tape together (use art glitter glue or wonder tape) starting on the left and overlapping on each side so as to conceal all the joins to the center of your box.









Using white cardstock cut 3 cross bars 3 ½” x 3/4”. Fold in each end ½” so you are left with 2 ½’ in the center. Adhere your three crossbars spaced evenly inside your box. Using your Sweetheart Borders Die cut 4 strips, cut down to 2 ½”. Adhere under the flaps.





From your Sweet as Honey Paper Pad, die cut the below elements. I also cut 3 bees from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad not pictured below. Decorate with stickles as crystal glaze as desired, let everything dry before you assemble the box.




Cut 4 acetate strips 2 ½” x 1”. Adhere these under the bungalows. Cut 1 acetate strips 1” x 4” for the largest maiden. Cut 2 strips acetate ½” x 4” for the remaining maidens. I like to use acetate so I can place my elements in just the right place.




Using the below panels cut 3 mats 2 ½” x 2 1/2”.  I have used the fairy and then I have used the top of panels, the tree line and sky. Adhere to the underside of the box. Later you will be adding a piece of honeycomb to the left and right sides.






Using the 3 tags cut 3 mats 2 ½” x 2 ½”. First tag I have trimmed the top and tag 2 and 3 I trimmed the bottom. Adhere to the front and side panels.





Using the below panels cut 1 mats 2 ½” x 2 7/8”.








From the off cut of the sky cut 1 mat 1” x 3” and using your Sweet as Honey set, stamp “you are Bee-utiful”, trim it to a tag with a top and tail.


Select a blue cardstock from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad and cut 1 mat 2 ½” x 6 7/8”. This will be for the back of the box to conceal all the joins, strengthen the box and give you somewhere to write your message.


Using the Sun Kissed Fleur set stamp on white cardstock using Archival Jet-Black Ink. Using your Stack and Store daubers color your flowers with Cantaloupe Ink and your leaves with Peeled Paint ink. Shape with your Deluxe Flower Shaping
Kit. Apply varying size pearls to flower centers.


Select a yellow cardstock from your Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad and die cut 1 honeycomb piece using your Sweet as Honey die. Tear into 3 pieces, 1 for the front panel and 1 for the left and right undersides. Adhere the undersides.


From the picture below, you can see how each layer is adhered to create your pop-up box.
Front Panel – Adhere your honeycomb top right corner, apply glue to the tip of your tag and half way, hold in place at the tip, push up and hold the center and curl up the tail, adhere your Sun Kissed Fleur flowers and leaves.










Left Side – Using 3d adhesive adhere your honey pot, adhere your Sun Kissed flower and leaf




                                      





Layer 1 – Adhere your bungalow to the front wall of the box not the first crossbar. Adhere a bee with only glue down the center so you can fold up his wings.






Layer 2 – Adhere 1 bungalow to the right and 1 maiden to the left to the front of the first crossbar. Adhere 1 small Sun Kissed flower to the Maiden’s hand.





Layer 3 – Adhere 1 bungalow to the left and 1 honey pot with a bee coming out on acetate to the right to the front of the second crossbar. Adhere 1 small Sun Kissed flower to the top of the Bungalow.





Layer 4 – Adhere 1 bungalow to the right and 1 maiden to the left to the front of the third crossbar. 



Back Panel – Adhere the patterned mat to the bottom, adhere the sentiment above. Adhere your largest fairy up the back. Adhere your bee to the left only with adhesive in the center and bend up his wings. Adhere your Sun Kissed flowers and leaves to the right side.





Back of box – Adhere the blue mat to conceal the back in. Using 3d adhesive adhere your sentiment. Adhere your bee to the left only with adhesive in the center and bend up his wings.  
  


This is what I love about a pop-up box, it lays flat, so when sending your box, you can create an envelope or bag, it will lay flat when flattened to the left or right; the layers will overlap to sit flat.
  


Hope you were inspired by my pop up box

Instructions

I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first. Using a patterned yellow cardstock from the Backyard Blossom Paper Pad, die cut 1 honeycomb die. Stamp your botanical rose and leaves, I have used the 3 of the same size flowers and 3 leaves. Color your flowers with the Stack and Store Daubers using the Cantaloupe ink and your leaves with the peeled paint. Spray lightly with your mini mister and shape using your Deluxe Flowers Shaping Kit, add small pearl stamens to the center. Trim a light blue patterned mat from your Sweet as Honey Paper Pad 2”x 1 3/8” and stamp with the “You are sweeter than honey” sentiment using the Smokey Grey ink. Stamp your Bee using the Sweet as Honey Stamp set with the Espresso Truffle, color all over in Antique Linen and highlight the body with Wild Honey. Stamp your maiden once full and once just the wings section using the Honey Bee Maidens Stamp set using the Espresso Truffle ink, color your maiden using E50, E51, for the face, arms, legs, R20 cheeks, BG000, BG07 wings, W8,100 shoes, E51, E55, Y35 hair, Y35 bodice, Y35, Y38 stripes, 100 stripes. Fussy cut out the center of the wing section and color using the BG000, BG07. Adhere to main maiden so the wing can be folded upwards. Stamp the honey pot and house from the Honey Bee Bungalows in Espresso Truffle, color the honey pot all over in the Antique Linen, highlight the dipper with E55 and the honey pot with E51, Y35, Y38. Color your house all over in Antique Linen, color the roof in BG000 and highlight in BG02, highlight the windows, door and house shadows in E55, W6 cobblestones, BG02 planter, RV34, G21 flowers and leaves. Using Crystal Glaze highlight the honey in the pots, the roof and door frame and window frame on the house, the body of the bee, the stripes and bag of the maiden. Using stickles highlight the wings and bodice of the maiden, the flowers and cobblestones on the house. When the roof glaze is dry add a little stickles. 

Cut your card base using the white cardstock 12 1/8” x 6 1/8”. Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish.   Cut 1 white mat 2 ½” x 1 7/8”. Using a light blue card, cut 4 mats 5 ¾” x 5 ¾”, 1 mat 2 5/8” x 1 1/8”, 1 mat 2 ¼” x 1 5/8”. Using the Patterned cardstock from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad, cut 4 mats 5 1/2” x 5 1/2”.  Trim the “you are Bee-utiful” sentiment from the pad.

Now you have all your elements done you can assemble your card. Adhere your patterned mats to the matching light blue mats. Adhere your card front, inserts and card back. Using 3d adhesive in the center of the honeycomb adhere down and now place a dot of glue in each corner and adhere in place. Using 3d adhesive adhere your maiden. Adhere your sentiment to its matching light blue mat and using 3d adhesive adhere slightly under your maiden. Using 3d adhesive adhere your house. Adhere your honey pot. Adhere your flowers beside the left side of your maiden. Adhere your bee and fold up his wings. On the inside left adhere your sentiment and adhere the honey pot to the left side. Highlight the coneflower centers on the card front with stickles.
