DIY Pop Up Cards

DIY Pop Up Cards
Today’s column is by Oh Happy Day contributor Michaela of Bliss! I’ve been seeing a lot of pop-up cards around the web lately, all using very intricate, sometimes complicated folding and glueing techniques. Since I’m really more of the simple-diy-lover, I’ve put together a quick and versatile pop-up card tutorial. The idea is that you can use one basic technique for an endless amount of different pop-up cards. Start with a simple card and fold it in half. Now start crafting the bits and pieces to display in your card. Stick some more balloons, or whatever it is you’re crafting, onto the flaps and voilà – you’re done. In the same way you can also create text cards (Happy Birthday), fields of flowers or rows of trees. All photos by Michaela for Oh Happy Day.

krokotak | OCEAN FLOOR Collage Make this beautiful 3D ocean-floor collage: Prepare the waves background and all the boats, fish, whales and seaweed. You might need to help your child with the folding, then let him decorate them with colored pencils or felt-tip pens and glue them in place. To make the boat: To make the whale: To make the fish: DIY Dinosaur Tutorial Meet Julie the Dinosaur. I asked my husband what we should name her, and he said Julie... so Julie she is! Julie Measures 18" long from nose to tail & 10" from toes to spikes. After printing & cutting out your pattern pieces, you need to assemble them as illustrated above. Cut out fabric with a 1" hem allowance. I didn't add all the spike rings or the patch heart to the pattern because I didn't follow a pattern for them (I just cut the tie part of a fluffy robe & sewed them into 16 rings.) For the "Body" 1. You do this by placing your body piece with the front facing you, and then put your "underneath body piece" on top so that it's front is facing the front of the body piece. 2. 3. 4. For the "spikes, heart & eyes" 1. 2. Who's cuter? "Mommy, stop taking pictures of the dinosaur and pay attention to the real cutie here!" " She said what?!" A little tired of all these pictures..... Thanks for stopping by! The End. :)
