cactus pop-up card

Surprise a friend with this super-cute cactus card! Betcha never knew that making a pop-up card could be so easy. Check out our video and instructions, we’ll show you how very simple it is. Just make a few cuts, add a few stickers and glue on a bit of paper. That’s all there is to it!
Step 1
Start by folding one of your note cards in half. 
Step 2
Now, let’s cut three pop-up panels into the card’s folded edge. Measure to find the center point along the folded side of your card. Make a 1" cut on either side of the center point. Both cuts should be about ¼" away from the center, so that this pop-up panel is about ½" wide. Next, measure 1" from either side of the center pop-up panel. On each side, cut another set of two 1" cuts to make the second and third pop-up panels.

TIP: When you’re done, you should have three sets of cuts (that’s six cuts total) evenly spaced along the fold of the card. 
Step 3
Pop each panel forward, so that all three pop out on the inside of the card. 
Step 4
Sticker time! Add one adorable cactus sticker to each pop-up panel. But don’t stop there, add more cute stickers onto the inside of the card. 
Step 5
Next, measure and cut your cactus-printed sheet of paper so that it’s the same size as the front side of your card. 
Step 6
Finally, glue your cactus paper to the front of your note card. Don’t forget to write a sweet note inside! Super-cute!
