CleverPatch Crafternoons – Mother’s Day Pop-Up Card

Download Activity Guide
Make Mum’s day POP this Mother’s Day with our fun cardboard pop-up card! Follow along and use our design or get creative and come up with your own!
  • Step 1Take 2 sheets of different coloured cardboard and bring the short edges together to fold in half. Trim 1cm from a long edge and a short edge of one sheet so it is a little smaller than the other. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors. Nest the small sheet inside the large and use double sided tape to hold in place.
  • Step 2Take a third sheet of cardboard and fold in half as you did in step one. Rule a horizontal line 11cm down from the top and then cut along the line so you now have a rectangle. Fold the bottom of the rectangle up 1cm and firmly crease, then fold back down to create a flap. Make small diagonal cuts to trim the corners off the flap as shown. These flaps will be used to attach the cardboard to the card.
  • Step 3Draw on the heart design for the pop-up. Because the cardboard is folded in half, you will only need to draw one half of your design. With this in mind, we have drawn in half of a large heart starting from the folded edge, and then a smaller heart on the outside. Use scissors to cut out the design.
  • Use the template provided if you are having trouble drawing your design free hand!
  • Step 4Unfold the pop-up and use a permanent marker to outline your design. Add a touch of sparkle with glue and fine glitter. Allow to dry.
  • For less glitter wastage, use a scrap piece of paper to catch any excess glitter. This will make it easy to tip the glitter back into the container ready to reuse!
  • Step 5Work out where you want to position the pop-up. The main thing to remember is you need to make sure the centre fold of the pop-up is perpendicular to the centre fold of the card. Add double sided tape to 1 of the flaps then press down in place. It is important to leave the other side unattached at this point.
  • Step 6Take another sheet of cardboard and fold in half as you did in step one. Rule a horizontal line 4cm down from the top and then cut along the line so you now have a skinny strip. Fold the bottom of the strip up 1cm and firmly crease, then fold back down to create a flap. Draw a banner design for the pop-up then cut out, remembering to trim the corners of the flap as shown.
  • Use the template provided if you are having trouble drawing your design free hand!
  • Step 7Unfold the banner pop-up and use a permanent marker to outline your design. Write a note in the middle of your banner.
  • Step 8Work out where you want to position the banner, remembering the fold must sit perpendicular to the card fold. Attach 1 flap in place with double sided tape and then lay the banner pop-up flat as shown.
  • Step 9Lay the heart pop-up flat and folded in half, then fold the banner pop-up in half over the top of the hearts. Place double sided tape on the respective flaps of the pop-ups.
  • Step 10Remove the paper back of the double-sided tape and close the card flat. Run your hand over the card applying pressure. When you open the card back up, the pop-ups should have stuck in place and be standing up when the card is fully opened as shown.
  • Step 11Decorate the front and inside of the card using left over cardboard scraps and a marker. Your card is now ready for Mum on Mother’s Day!
