Pop-Up Book in a Box Tutorial

Posted by Graphic 45 10/02/2019 7 Comment(s) Mini Albums,Tutorials,Videos,


Hello, G45ers!

In honor of our #G45PopUp - Challenge  (deadline, October 4th, 2019) we have some last minute inspiration for you.  This Pop-Up project is happiness in a box, it starts off by looking like a gorgeous Lost in Paradise keepsake box, but when opened a tropical mini album unfolds, ending with a 3D floral pop-up at the end.  This vibrant beauty has been created by Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Teresa Cruz aka Andor Violeta.  We encourage you to grab some papers and create along with Teresa's YouTube Tutorial.


#G45PopUp Book Box with Lost in Paradise

By Teresa Cruz aka Andor Violeta


“Hello everyone, 


For me the month of September is the best month (and December of course), because it is the month I was born and it is still good weather (at least here in Portugal) so it is still possible to go on holiday or enjoy the small or large afternoons or weekends for fun and unforgettable days with family and friends ...


I was also very excited to try the new Lost in Paradise collection, so I decided to use it for my project this month!! A special project with interaction, textures, and surprises !! Here it is, my Pop-Up Book Box!!




This collection is so vibrant with beautiful designs, colours and awesome birds, flowers and details that just pop in every project that you make, take a look!!!






I use a Graphic 45 Book Box that already comes with regular tags. 

I just i altered a lit bit cutting off one side of the interior box to fit the tags popping out when i open it!!






And at the end of the box, it’s hidden a beautiful bouquet that pops out of the page looking like real flowers!! 




Look who just came to see my project when i was taking pictures of it outside:




TIP: The Graphic 45 inks are a great product to help further enhance freshly cut paper as they are accented the edges and also for a more professional finish of your projects. 


The Graphic 45 chart has the colours that coordinate perfectly with all the paper collections, and you can buy them individually or in a pack, awesome right!! 

Take a look at the Decades Dye Ink Pad Package Includes: 12 Graphic 45 Signature Colors

This is just beautiful. The fussy cutting is superb & a project which has really come to life. Well done Teresa.

Do you have any tips for fussy cutting? I'm new to it and pieces don't turn out as nice as I would wish.

I love the bright colors and those flowers are stunning I will be watching the tutorial to get the particulars for sure!!

How clever are you!!! I am very impressed. I was wondering what the tool is that you used to make your frames? I have to have one of those! I also wondered why you didn't glue the cardboard to the spine. Is that to give it freedom of movement when opening and closing? Also, what kind of glue do you recommend?
