Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's idea is a Gift Box Pop-Up card that I saw on Pinterest, but just the card, no instructions.
So I played with the measurements and came up with the instructions for the card in two sizes,
5x7 and 41/4 by 51/2.

This card is 5x7

This is the card opened to reveal the Gift Box Pop-Out insert.
The 5x7 inch card allows for three gift boxes.

This card is 41/4 by 51/2.

This is the inside of the smaller card. It allows for two Gift Box

This is what the insert looks like after you have marked all the measurements.
Next step is to score the outer dots down to the next cut line.

This is the back view after you have cut and scored.

This is the insert after it is cut and scored and ready to be decorated.

Here are the supplies I used to make the cards

Stamps - Happy Birthday - Endless Creations
Happy Mother's Day - Printworks (E2338)
Dies - Spellbinders Classic Hearts (S4-136)
Spellbinders Lacey Ovals(S4-314)
Papers - Miss Caroline (My Mind's Eye) 6x6 stack
and 12 by 12 sheets for card base.
Border punch large card - Martha Stewart
Border punch small card - EK Success

I suggest making the small one first so you see how it goes together.
Being careful to measure, mark and cut correctly is the magic.

Hope you have a go at this card, really is fun to make and decorate.
And, anyone would love to receive it. Would be great for a wedding card too.
