- 2 sheets of white 8.5”x11” printer paper (to print card pieces)
- 1 sheet 8.5”x11” card stock in a spring color
- Printer with color ink
- Crayons, color pencils, or markers
- Glue Stick and tape (double-stick tape optional, but helpful)
- Scissors (paper cutter is handy but not necessary)
Print card pieces and card/popup insert page.
Note: If possible set your printer to borderless printing.
When you set printer to borderless printing the paper ribbon with the flowers will print all the way to the edge.
Trim card insert/popup paper as shown in image below.
Cut along each of the 6 lines.
Fold the flaps back and crease as shown.
If you’re going to color the inside of the card you can do so now.
We made a blue sky and green grass
Open the paper and push the flaps in. This makes the popup boxes.
Cut out all the images for your card.
Help children with cutting as needed.
You should now have all your pieces ready to assemble your card.
Fold the color card stock in half.
Use Glue stick or double side tape to adhere your card insert to the card stock.
Tape or glue pieces to inside of card (see below)
Note: I like to use double side tape for the popup pieces. No waiting for glue to dry.
Place a piece of double stick tape to the popup box, then place the image on top of tape.
Glue or tape images to the front of card however you like.
Sign your card and you are done.
Use your imagination to make the card your very own work of art.
Add your child’s fingerprints to the card for grandma.
We used green paint to make a row of bushes. How cute is that? We think pretty darn cute.
Use the popup card techniques you learned to make a smaller card.
Use a half sheet of Card stock and half sheet of paper.
Now you will be able to make all different kinds of popup cards.
Kids can draw their own pictures to attach to a card. Have fun with it.
Handmade cards are fun to make and have special meaning to the people that receive them.
