Make Your Own Pop Up Cards

This week we celebrated Daddy's 40th birthday so with much excitement two little girls made their own cards to give to him. Miss M (4.1) and I decided that it would be fun to try making a pop up card so it would be extra special for such an occasion.

We googled how to make pop-up cards and found this great tutorial with easy to follow instructions. Then we watched this tutorial so we knew how to decorate it. Making the card didn't take long at all and the finished product was super. (I'm a bit biased!!) Instead of using the glue to make ours we used a strong double sided tape as I don't always trust a glue stick to hold cardboard in place.

As Daddy opened his card on the morning of his birthday he got a wonderful surprise - there was a picture of him riding his surfboard on a big wave and on the front of the card he found a picture of our family.

Maybe your kids could try making a pop up card for someone you know or why not try out some special designs for Christmas.
