Picture of Instructables Holiday Card
Not entirely a RoboCard but this is an unofficial official homemade holiday card that Instructables HQ would probably not send to its clients.

It is that time of year where we eagerly await the big guy to deliver the things you have been dreaming about all year. You also made sure that he didn't have to ban you for being naughty. But it's the end of the year and you hope he is still in a good mood.

In the true spirit of Christmas, Hannaukah, Kwanzaa and everything else, nothing brings home the message of crass consumerism at holiday time better than the Charlie Brown Christmas Special. In my take on a homemade holiday greeting card, here's a holiday message to jump start the global economy for a better new year.

Step 1: Holiday trimmings...

This project should really only give you a basis of how to create a homemade card. You should make the card so it reflects your individual tastes and sensibilities. This is a simple papercraft project that only requires:

- some printed pictures or photos

- portrait picture of your intended ~~victim~~ subject

- various colors of construction paper or cardstock

- glue in any form

- some sticky tape

- scissors or small utility knife

You can use the Instructables theme, use a holiday theme, or anything else you can think of.

I'm too lazy :)
Maybe he'd be happy with a scan of the card laid flat? (So would some other people...)

Well the pop-up does change things...

It is two flat pages glued together. The cut and the way you fold makes it a pop up. Nothing special but magical...

I put up the scans/pdfs of the card. Edit it so that you don't waste a tank of orange ink. Print out and cut out the parts for your own design on colored construction paper.
Thank you!

Always take the road less travelled. It's more fun. I hope we will see something from you.
I hope I can get the materials together and the time to put it together. :-)
