How to Make a Pop-Up Card


How to Make a Pop-Up Card. Need a way to keep the kids busy on a rainy
day? Making a pop-up card is quick, easy, and will
entertain them for hours! You will need Imagination Colored construction
paper A pencil A ruler Safety scissors Markers or crayons and glue. Step 1. Fold two pieces of paper in half and set one
aside for later use. With a pencil, make a light dot in the center
of the folded edge. Step 2. Use the ruler to measure a 2-inch line from
the dot toward the unfolded edge. Draw another dot to mark the end of the 2-inch
line. Use the scissors to cut from dot to dot, starting
at the folded edge. Step 3. Fold the flaps on either side of the cut so
that each one forms a triangle. Press firmly to create a deep crease. Unfold the flaps, and then unfold the entire
piece of paper. Step 4. Turn the construction paper over so the paper
stands up like a tent. Put your finger on top of the tent and push
the triangles down. Turn the paper over again. When you open and close it, the pop-up hole
will look like a mouth. Step 5. Draw the main character for your card around
the hole, using it as a mouth. Use colored pencils and markers to bring the
picture to life. Write a note to the person who’ll be receiving
the card. Step 6. Open the second sheet of paper and set it
down horizontally. Place a line of glue down the inside crease. Glue the pop-up page’s outer crease to the
plain page’s inner crease. Wait for the glue to dry. Step 7. Design the front of the card and share it
with someone special! Did you know Pop-up books were used in the
13th century by a Catalan mystic and poet to prove his theories.
