Pop-up Mothers Day Card
April 16th, 2010 by Craftylocks

Flowers all in a row to pass on my thanks!

This is one of the very effective paper crafts for children and an easy pop-up card technique for children to create. It combines a couple of different techniques, you do not need to use both, but I have thrown them both in the mix here to demonstrate two at once.

Mothers Day Card - Garland

The first technique I used was making a paper garland (Paper Garland Tutorial). I then used pencils to give each flower it’s own personality. They are so sweet!! Other ideas for the garland are hearts or stars all in a row, or a person so that their is a row of folk holding hands.

You will have to trust me on this, there really is a pop up on the card, it is kinda little and hard to see in the photo – but the action is that when the card is opened the three flowers ‘pop up’ and stand out from the card. To decorate the rest of the card I drew another flower – a big version of my little ones in a row.

But wait, there’s more!! Yet another flower from my garland (the last one I promise) is stuck onto the envelope to make matching set.
