Mum Pop Up Box


I have made this box with a 30x15cm piece of white card.

I scored the card at 7cm, 14cm and 28cm

I scored the width of the card at 7cm

I used the 2xm at the end of the card as a glue tab. On the top of the box I cut the 2cm of card away.

I cut strips of card at 9cm long and scored them at 1cm on each side and used these as glue tabs. I attached them to the inside of the box. I covered the panels with spotty paper.  I added the detail to acetate to attach them to the strips.
