Pop Up Card

Why buy a card when you can make an easy pop up card yourself? This craft is kid-friendly, very doable and safe. You will need a pair of scissors, a piece of white paper, and a piece of colored paper for backing. You may also use stickers, crayons, markers, and color pencils for decorating.



Pop Up Card Instructions

  1. Fold a piece of white paper in half; this will be your ‘card’. Cut two notches (about one inch in lenght) along the folded edge of the paper.
  2. Fold over this small flap of paper. Press firmly and make a nice clean fold that is straight (parallel to the folded edge of the paper).
  3. Unfold the flap so that it lies flat again. You may need to wiggle it back and forth a little.
  4. Open the card half way. Use your fingers to push the flap of paper into the card so that the flap lies between the two layers of the paper.
  5. This is how the outside of the card will look like. When you open the card, a box-like shape will pop up at you.
  6. To complete the card, glue it onto a colored piece of paper for backing. You can decorate this pop-up so that it looks like a house. Draw a heart on it and make it a Valentine’s card. Use stickers and other craft tools to make it special.
