The Six Pack Box Card is a super easy and cute 3D card to put together for that special person in your life.
The six pack box card comes from the “Sunday With Dad” downloadable kit at Svgcuts.com. Even though this fun box card set is geared towards Father’s Day, you could certainly use it for any occasion and gender.
What I really like about the six pack box card is you’re able to change it up. You can make your bottle labels and the carton into any type of drink you’d like. I went with the beer theme because the receiver of this card enjoys the specialty crafted brew.

Once you’ve purchased the svg file from svgcuts.com, print off the PDF file and look over the the pieces you’ll need to cut out. Then, choose the paper colors and theme you want to go with.
2. The solid 12 x 12 sheets of paper I used were black, grey, and off white. I purchased mine at Joann’s Fabrics craft store. I used the “Mixed Media” designer paper from the Colorbok brand line of paper pads. Walmart carries these in their craft section. Alternately, this paper pad should be available on Amazon if you aren’t able to find it at Walmart.
3. Cut out your shapes and set them aside. I like to keep the pieces in a box when I cut them out so I don’t lose any of the little shapes.
4. Ink the edges of your cut shapes. This time, I went with a grey ink.
5. Stamp your sentiments on both banners.
6. Cut out the included envelope file. Fold, glue, and set aside.
1. To stick the layered pieces on the box base, I used a tape runner. The designer paper I chose for this project is very thin like copy paper. If you use liquid glue on it, it will curl not lay down flat and leave glue marks. There is a banner piece that extends out from the layer, do not put glue on the backside of that. So it doesn’t get stuck to the fold of the card. You want the banner extended area to be extending out when the card is in its box shape.
2. Glue down the inked bottle caps and labels onto the bottles. One little tip that I have: If you find your paper does not lay flat after gluing the layers together, let them completely dry then place them inside a heavy book. After that, stack several heavy books on top, and leave the card pieces to flatten over night. By the next day they will be flat!
3. I like to use the Scotch Foaming Tape to “pop” up the layers on my card. You don’t have to do this, but I think it really adds a punch to your card.
4. Glue your box together. I like to let my box base dry almost completely before gluing in the panels. Make sure everything in straight and folds flat. I added foam tape to the top colored banner and only glued down the happy birthday banner.
5. Glue in place the first bottle panel with the number one cut in it. Hold in place for a few minutes so the glue catches.
6. Next, glue in the box handle labeled number two and let it dry. Then, glue in the third panel.
7. Once your inner panels are dried, place the second, larger banner on the box. I used foam tape on this one as well.
This card is super easy and packs a big punch in presentation to your receiver.
