How To: Make a pop-up card for any occassion

Make a pop-up card for any occassion

To make a pop-up card follow the instructions below. First fold two pieces of the same size heavy card stock or construction paper in half. Use the first one for your outer card, and the other for your inner cutout card. Cut a 1-1/2 inch strip in the inner card's center and make two slits down from the fold to make the strip. Then, fold the strip inward so that the fold is inside the card and the card has a rectangular hole in the middle of the fold when closed. This will be the base to use when gluing your pop art into the card. Use a glue stick to coat the front and back of the cutout, making sure that the slit is still folded in and not covered with glue. Then, place the outer card on top of the glued inner card and cover the cutout portion of the card with glue. Note whether that, all the sides and folds are lined up. If they don't, then trim the non-folded edges so they will be the same. Now, open the card with the glued piece in place and add your pop art. Then by using another piece of heavier paper, cut out any shape, picture or design. Again use the glue stick to attach the cutout to the tab sticking out of the fold of your card. Finally, embellish it with glitter, stickers, personal words or any other decorative element as you like to finish the pop-up greeting card. If you follow the steps in this video, you can easily make a pop-up card for any occasions
