Easter Card In A Box!

Hello The Rubber Cafe' Fans!  Hope your day is going great!  Are you ready for Easter?  Well, I am getting there but haven't quite finished all the little crafts I like to make for my Easter Brunch table.  Here is one idea I came up with after seeing all those Card In A Box cards everywhere on the internet. Don't worry you don't need anything special to make this Card In A Box....well you do need a scoring tool and your April Creative Cafe' Kit of The Month - Spring Is In The Air !  Here is my fun Easter Card In A Box.

For the base of this card, you will need the green cardstock cut to 8 1/2" x 6".  Then you will need to score this piece along the long side at 1/2", 2 1/2", 4 1/2" and 6 1/2".

Now turn your cardstock 90 degrees and score at 3" and 5 1/2".

Now you will need to cut that extra 1/2" that is along the long side but don't discard that.  Save this strip to use as inserts for your cool pop ups!

Now its time to cut out one of the little 1/2" flap that will create the box and to cut the flaps.

Now you will put some scor-tape on the small flap so that you can create the box when folded.

Adhere this little flap to the opposing end of the cardstock.  This will create the box.

Now you can fold down the flaps and add the inserts to the middle.  Use that extra 1/2" strip of paper to make those inserts!

Now you are ready to decorate your pop up card box!!  Here are a few close-ups of mine!  I used the Add-On Stamp Set - Happy Spring!

I used my Silhouette to cut the grass for the inserts but you can cut your grass using scissors or free-hand!  I added the little baskets, easter eggs and Easter bunny using scor-tape.

I had alot of fun making this Card In A Box.  I found the instructions on Splitcoaststampers and various other websites.  All you have to do is google Card In a Box and you will find all kinds of sizes for this project!  Hope you have a very blessed Easter!
