Christmas Box with a Double-Sided Pop-Up Lid

By Vera Shelemekh


“This magic Christmas box can change the appearance. The secret is in a double-sided lid with a pop-up construction inside. The technique is quite simple. It is possible to add such a lid to any box or surface. Please, watch my video tutorial with the instructions.

I’ll be using my box for the storage of my Christmas scrapbook embellishments so the brand new Graphic45 Joy to the World collection is just in time.

Surprise Pop-Up Box Tutorial by Vera Shelemekh for Graphic 45











  • Adhere heavy and dimensional elements only on exterior otherwise the lid won’t close.

  • Create any pop up constructions on the crease inside the lid. You may use one from my previous tutorials.

  • Use magnets to make the lid close tight
