Patriotic Pop Up Boxes by Nancy

Patriotic Pop Up Boxes by Nancy | Rinea

Hello, everyone!

It's Nancy here today with a fun new project! 

Canada Day coming up on July 1st, and Independence Day on July 4th, so I thought it would be fun to make these cute little Patriotic Pop Up Boxes!

Patriotic Pop Up Box with Rinea Foiled Paper

I'm using the "Patriotic" collection for this project.
It's lovely that this collection works for the colors of both countries! 
These little boxes measure approximately 3 1/2" x 4 1/2".
Wouldn't they look wonderful decorating a party table?

Here's how I did it:

Materials Used:

Rinea Patriotic Foiled Paper Variety Pack

Plain Self Closing Box - Free Cut File from Simply Craft SVGs

Cricut Explore Air Machine

Small Maple Leaf Die

White Cardstock

Tacky Glue

1. I began by cutting the box base out of white cardstock.

2. I then cut the layer pieces, using each of the colors of Starstruck Foiled Paper, in the Patriotic Foiled Paper Variety Pack

3. Using the maple leaf die, I cut several leaves out of the Ruby Red Starstruck Foiled Paper.

4. While the box base was still flat, I adhered all the foiled pieces in place on the box base. I used tacky glue to do this. Then I adhered the Silver and Ruby Red to the other box, along with the maple leaf, making it the red and white...and very Canadian. I added the Sapphire and Ruby Red to one box - making it red, white and blue. Some of my American friends may have other little bits to add to make it appear more American! ;o)

5. Then it's just a matter of adhering the tab at the side and popping the bottom tabs into place.

Here's one last look at the finished boxes:

These would look so festive for any occasion!
You could fill them with goodies, and give them away,
or just keep them on hand for some fun decor items!
They're so easy and fun to make!
