Make It : Pop-Up Father's Day Card

Posted by

My dad is a huge fan of pop-ups.  He has quite the collection of books and cards, but none handmade!  My younger brother and I collaborated to make this one-

Father's Day pop-up step one

My brother drew this robot and we reduced it on the photocopier to make a few more.  These were then mounted on card-stock to make them a bit sturdier.  We folded a piece of 8.5 x 11" card-stock in half and I drew a robot cityscape on one side.  Next we followed these easy pop up instructions.

By cutting into your card-stock and inverting folds, you create a basic pop-up to mount your figures on.

Voila!  Happy Father's Day Dad!
