Crayon Box Pop Up Card
Crayon box cut files and printables for a cute and colorful card-in-a-box type of pop up card. It folds flat!
This papercraft 3D crayon box can be machine cut or hand cut. Finished size approximately 5" tall.

Suggested contribution for this project is $1.99.
files have sizing rectangles around each page (8.5" x 11"). Set the size of the pages, then delete these rectangles before cutting or printing.
Cutting the pieces
Cut box and pop up stut (page 1) from light orange card stock. Score crease lines.
Print the box front (page 2) on the same orange card stock and cut out.
Construct a rectangular box pop up (the strut) from the small scored strip.
Print and cut out the crayons (page 3).
On page 4 are some sample sentiments, including Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary, along with numbers. If you would rather create your own, the matching font is Arial Bold.
Attaching the strut and crayons
Center one short side of the strut on the side panel of the crayon box, aligning the top edge of the strut with the top edge of the crayon box. It doesn't have to be perfectly centered on the side panel, just eyeball it. Adhere.
Flatten the strut and the card. Weight and allow drying time if you used liquid glue.
Try out arrangements of the two different crayon arrays until you are satisfied.
Spread glue on the inside of the back strut, as shown below.
Slide the back crayon set inside the rectangular strut.
Apply glue to the front of the strut.
Adhere the other crayon set to the front of the strut. Close the card and make sure both crayon sets are straight. Allow to dry.
Open the card and flip the crayon sets to the left.
Adhere the matching sets of crayons to cover the white backs.
Assembling the box
Flip the crayons back to the right-hand side. Spread glue on the short side of the strut, and on the long box flap.
Close the crayon box over the crayons, tucking the long flap under the front of the box.
Adhere the printed box front to the card.
Print a sentiment and add it to the back of the box.
The first time I made this card I cut all of those crayon tips separately from paint chips, which was incredibly labor intensive. Although I needed 3 rows--24 crayons--for my card, I think it works better with only two rows or crayons.
