DIY Easy POP UP Card : Photo Tutorial

Hello all, today I want to share with you my childhood memories. Those days I loved making different greeting cards for different occasions. It was such a satisfying feeling to make handmade birthday cards with impressive birthday wishes for family and friends. And if someone presented me a handmade birthday card I use to so so happy. And if the card would be a POP UP card, I would be happy with no bounds.

My love for pop-up cards is sill there. I never made any of them thinking they are hard to make and not my cup of tea. But last week I was so inspired by all those Thanksgiving Thank You cards that I decided to make a greeting card. So why not a pop up card ha! Cool idea! And went ahead and made my first ever POP UP CARD.

It was simple and easy to make. And that's what I'm sharing today with you all my creative readers. Scroll down to see detailed picture tutorial on How to Make a Pop Up Card. Let's go.......

4. Now flower's arrangement. Decide the colors of your flowers and arrange them accordingly. For your convenience I have numbered the flowers (clockwise) in both the following pictures. This will help you in understanding which flower is placed where in the final flower pop up. Flower no.1 will be the base of the flower stack.

14. As shown in picture below add a small dot of glue and on the center flower's (i.e flower no. 1) center top. Stick it on the right side of the greeting paper. Remember glue ONLY at top of the petal otherwise flowers will not open properly.
Similarly, add glue dot on other side flower (flower no. 4) and close the greeting paper to stick. Let it dry properly.
