Make This Pop Up Cube Inside An Easter Card

This Pop Up Cube inside an Easter Card has everything a card needs, a bad joke, a pop up and   a cute Easter bunny! Make this for your favorite little bunny.  The one of the Card Makers Success Summit teachers made a card like this and I though “I made a pop up like this.  I will put it inside a card!”  See the Halloween Pop Up Cube Card here.

This card fits into an A7 envelope.  But if you want a custom envelope, see how to make one here.

 This is the March 2022 Patreon Only  Card for The Crazy Cricut Lady.  The tutorial is free but to download the design you will need to first become a patreon supporter of The Crazy Cricut Lady site.  This is completely separate from my site membership and does cost $1 per month.  That helps me keep the rest of this site free and allows me to help pay for the site.  One project per month is posted on my patreon site but you get access to all past projects when you join and help support this site.  Consider joining my patreon supporters now.

What you need:
Paper Selection for the Pop Up Cube Inside An Easter Card

The Paper for this card needs to be at least 100 lb. weight to stand up.  And the base card has to be 2 sided.  The rest of the papers don’t have to be two sided.  The color scheme is pastel colors.   The gold pen adds some bling.  Patterns would work for this card but make sure that the pen shows up on whatever paper you choose.

Cutting the Pop Up Cube Inside An Easter Card

Print and cut everything out. I used a gold gel pen, but you only need to make sure the pen shows up on the color you choose.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  See the easy and cheap trick here.  The font I used is an Access font called BFC Christmas Card (I know, wrong holiday but I liked the font).

I had to change the dimensions, like height and general size, of the pop up cube (from the Halloween card) to make the pop up cube fit inside the card.  Don’t try to use that design in this card.  It will be too big.

If you are using the SVG file, make sure that you read the directions in the instruction document in the zip file.  Because of a glitch in Design Space, the project loads up extra big.  The instruction file tells you what size it should be.  It also tells you how to make the writing, drawing and score lines work.

If you want to add overlays inside the cubes, duplicate the large pink and blue overlays twice and the small square ones 4 times.   Glue them inside the cubes on the blank spots you can see of the pop out.  It adds a nice finishing touch.  See the picture at the end of the tutorial.

Assembling the Pop Up Cube Inside An Easter Card
This card is fairly easy to assemble.  We will start with the pop up.    First re crease all the folds on the purple rectangles.  They should look like the first picture below.  Then glue into cubes like the second picture.  The other pictures show how to glue them to each other, but be sure to read below how to glue the tall overlays on before you attach the smaller cubes.

 

First, make the overlays by gluing each of the the two overlay sections together (blue on top of pink).   The tall ones have to go on the tall piece after you glue it closed but before you attach the little cubes.  If you cut the extra overlays, two of the tall ones go inside and two go on the outside.  Look at the pictures if you need help.

The small overlays go on the top and front outside. If you cut the extra overlays, they go on the bottom and the attached sides inside.  Attach the eggs to the small overlays.

Attaching the Pop Up Cube to the Easter Card
 Once the pop up cube is made, fold it flat with the tall pieces on the left and the eggs on top.  Open the base card and place it so that the fold is horizontal and the writing is on the right.  Put glue on the bottom little square without the egg.  Place the bottom corner of the little square on the fold line like the second picture below.    Be sure it is not upside down and looks like the picture.  Put glue on the exposed blank little square.  Close the card and press hard.  Then open the card.  The pop up should open and stand up.
Finishing The Pop Up Cube Inside An Easter Card

Assemble the front overlay by assembling the bunny and egg and the HAPPY EASTER title pieces.  Attach them to the front overlay.  Then center the front overlay on the front of the card.

And your Pop Up Cube Inside An Easter Card is done!  And remember it fits inside an A7 envelope for mailing.  Below is a picture of the card with the added overlays.
