Mother's Day Window Box Pop Up Card

pop up card flower box
Thank goodness I had this pop up card from Brenda at Qbee's Quest in my idea file. Mother's Day came up really fast this year. Maybe because Easter was so late?

Brenda used the following punches to create her flower shapes:

  • 1-3/8” x 5/8” Ovals

  • Itty Bitty Shape 4-petal flowers

  • 5-Flower Petals

  • Boho Blossoms Scallop

  • Blossom Petals tear-drop shaped petals

  • Since I didn't have any of those punches, I drew the pieces and made a cutting file.

    Download file set:
    Silhouette Studio, PDF, DXF, SVG (how to use my SVG files in Cricut Design Space).

    Files download for free; pay what you wish for the tutorial and to support this site. Suggested contribution for this project is $1.00.

    I cut ten extra Itty Bitty flowers for each hyacinth to finish the backs the same as the fronts.

    This is very cool but the flower petal file link says the page either doesn't exist or is underconstruction.

    What a cute card. I'll check back to see if the links are fixed. It would also make a good birthday card. Have a great weekend. Thanks

    Blogger kept stalling on me this morning, so I guess the ends of the links didn't save.

    Should be okay now!
