Use a paper cutter or scissors and cut the score lines to the center score. On the end ½” score line cut it off on a diagonal to create a tab.
Now you have the look of the box. To add support to the outside back of the box, I used white cardstock measuring 2" x 4 7/8". You can use this panel to stamp a sentiment. I added the lighthouse, birds (from lighthouse die) and star fish from the paddles and rope ladder die.
You use red line on these tabs as well. Tape on the outside of each tab. Tuck the tabs on the inside of the box to create your dividers. You can slightly close the box in this step to make sure the tabs line up straight.
Step 7: Decorating the box
I decorated the inside of the box with several CottageCutz nautical dies. On the back panel I used the large sailboat die, cut in navy blue cardstock. I stamped my "beach life" sentiment and used the circle set basics to cut it out. I cut another circle in red cardstock and slightly offset it.
I also used the Pelican die cut in a white confetti cardstock. Sponged his beak with distress inks. The wood mooring he is standing on is cut from Stampin'-Up soft suede cardstock and the ropes in kraft cardstock. The detail on the pelican and the wood mooring is amazing.
Well friends, that's it for me today. It was a long post so thanks for staying with me. I hope you enjoyed this card and will give the pop-up box technique a try. So until next time.......God bless!!!
