Take two pieces of A4 kraft card and cut at 21.5cm on the longer side. This will give you 2 pieces of card approx 21.5cm long x 21cm wide. Score one of the card pieces on the back and one on the front so that your fixing tabs will be at opposite ends of the box construction to hold the structure together. Or rotate and score.
First piece: Score at 10cm and 20cm on the 21cm width. This give you two sides and creates a 1cm panel to secure the box sides. Score across the 21.5cm width at 10cm from the top. You will have created 4 panels and a side tab for fixing the box construction, remove the top section of the side tab as shown.
Second piece: Here you reverse or turn your card to create the second tab. Score 21cm width at 10cm and at 20cm. Score the 21.5cm length on one panel only at 10cm from the top. The unscored section creates the back of you pop up box, remove the top section of the side tab as shown.
