Pop Up Box Greeting Card Kits in the Mail Ready for You!

It’s a fun day when it’s design day. I pluck patterned papers, ribbons and embellishments from my shelves with product suites in mind. The suites make creating a coordinated look easy. Look at what I created this time for my next round of Kits in the Mail!

These are Pop Up Box Greeting Cards. They could double as a dinner table party favor since the “box” creates a space to hold a fun treat.

The kits contain these supplies to create the greeting cards/table favors.

Here is my Youtube video showing what is included in the kit.

There are 3 kit options to order so you get the pet themed design you want. Or order a kit with one of each design.

1 DOG kit and 1 Ice Cream kit

You are ordering 1 DOG themed kit and 1 Ice Cream kit. Use your adhesives for assembly.

1 Dog kit, 1 Cat kit and 1 Ice Cream kit

You are ordering 1 Dog themed kit, 1 Cat themed kit and 1 Ice Cream kit. Use your adhesives for assembly.


I used the following adhesives to assemble the kit:

Glue Dots, Tear and Tape, Stampin’ Seal, mini-dimensionals and multi liquid glue.

The White Chalk Marker can be used to write your personal message on the back of the card.

Join me during the April 17th One of a Kind Facebook Live event to assemble along with me. I’ll provide a Youtube video as well.

If you want to recreate the kit, these are the products I used to assemble the kit:

Playful Pets patterned paper

2 inch circle punch
