Step 1: Making Petals ...
Now let us Now start with our mission for making popup card
Our first step is to create the pop up card ,to do this … first you have to take a normal sheet or an A4 sheet and stick color paper to it(you can use glue stick so that it will not make paper to look clumsy) .After sticking it divide it into seven pieces( each one behave like a petal of a flower)which we are gonna do it in the following steps.
Step 2: Making Petals ... (continued)
Take one of those divided sheet and fold it half ... You can follow the steps by pictures given in sequential order.
Then you have to further fold it half and fold it as triangle.Cut whatever shape you want for the flower ... Be careful you have to cut it in the way that the center of the paper is inwards... Then, In the similar way, you have to make all seven flowers of the pop up card.
Step 3: Critical Step!
This is the confusing step but if you follow the steps correctly you will get awesome pop up card!
first of all you take one of those flower that we got from previous step.Then carefully cut only one petal 1st picture shows it then cut one petal from all the seven flowers ... Take those flowers and you have to stick one petal by other in each flower.
Step 4: Attaching Flowers!
Take three flowers glue it as given in the picture-1,then take another one,then next two and finally the last one result in the last one ... You should be careful stick only the ends of the flower so ,while opening it pop ups without any disturbance otherwise it sticks to each other.Fully apply glue to the flower and stick it on the pop up card. While you are opening it automatically pop ups without any disturbance.
Step 5: Finally Decoration
You can decorate your card as per your wish...
Here i have decorated it with glitters and a small piece of a cloth I have make a bow with it. I have make a outline and I applied some glue to that outline. I sprinkled some glitters to it .To look more attractive i sprinkled different colors... Then finally sticking some stars here and there and sticking some butterflies looks more attractive.It seems colorful :D isn't it?

Question 4 years ago on Introduction
Hi, I’ve tried lots of different glues. Sailor roll pen, ova craft glue, double sided, pritt, stick it....which type is best? I haven’t tried glue dots yet but find the card either doesn’t open properly or the flower comes off the inside of the card, or all the petals separate. Any tips welcome. I will just adhere the tops from now on; and push the flower right into the crease of the card?
Thanks in advance for any help! Liz.
