Carrots Pop up Box Card
This Carrots Pop Up Box Card is welcoming spring with a fun fold! This stamp set is perfect for popping out of the ground — I mean card!
When I saw these Thanks a Bunch stamps were available FOR FREE during Sale-a-bration, I knew I wanted to use them for this type of fun-fold card! And the best part? It still fits in an envelope! Fold it flat, and the carrots turn to the side and hide inside!
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you won’t be surprised that I made this card as I love making interactive and fun-fold cards. It may even remind you of one from some time ago:

Pop-up boxes look intimidating, but if you haven’t made one yet, I promise they are easier than they may look! Consider giving one a go. Additionally, this stamp set is well-suited for popping out of the ground — I mean card!

How to make a Carrots Pop Up Box Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Pumpkin Pie: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, scored and cut as shown below.
- Garden Green: 7 pieces: 1-3/4” x 2-3/4”
- Crumb Cake:
- 7 pieces: 1-1/2” x 2-1/2”
- 1 piece for the back: 5-1/2” x 2-3/4”
- 2 pieces: 3/4” x 3”
Stamping the carrots:
- These carrots are “two-step” stamps, which mean you ink up the large carrot stamp and stamp like usual. Then with the same or a different color, you ink up the lines stamps and stamp over your first image. It gives each carrot some depth.
- Stamp 3-4 carrots on white scrap using your favorite orange ink (or more like me since I couldn’t decide!). Add the green leaves for the tops. Then fussy cut each carrot out.
Fold the box:
- Stamp your message and carrot tops on the Crumb Cake pieces, and adhere these to your green pieces. Next adhere these to your card flaps.
- Attach your carrots to the Crumb Cake strips. I used a couple of glue dots, but any adhesive will do. Fold 1/2” flaps and attach both to the inside top of the “right wall” as shown in the picture.
- Add Tear and Tape adhesive to the other side of the strips for the inside of the box. Remove the backing and press the box closed. Trim any extra strip that hangs out. HINT: fold the box the other way to get a good crease in the strip so it folds straight.
