8-bit popup cards

8-bit popup cards
Hello! Remember that pixel heart card I made a while back? Well it has been one of my most popular tutorials to date so I thought I would add another few designs to the collection. Meet ‘space-invader popup’ and ‘skull popup': Like the heart card, they are really minimal (which I just love) and easy to make once you have got the hang of it. You definitely need a craft knife (and a steady hand) to make these cards this project is only really suitable for adults or teenagers. If you want to have a go at making them you will find full instructions and downloadable templates after the jump. Suitable for: Teenagers & grown upsCard size: 8.5cm x 6.5cmEnvelope size: 9cm x 7cm You will need: ♥ Paper ♥ Craft knife ♥ Ruler (preferably a metal one) ♥ Cutting mat (optional) ♥ Needle (or compass point) for scoring 1. Then cut and score along the correct lines on the template (see diagrams below for more guidance). 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. If you have any questions then do ask (leave a comment below).

{Valentines day} pixelated popup card I‘ve been scratching my head trying to come up with a card for my hubby {AKA the non-romantic type}. I finally decided to make this pixely popup heart card! They are really minimal (which I love) and take about 20 minutes to make (that includes the card, insert and envelope). You can even make some pixely confetti to put inside the card (if you are a big kid like me!).

Pacman Halloween garland By Kate on September 23, 2011 I vividly remember playing pacman when I was younger and I used to get the heebie-jeebies just before one of those little ghosts gobbled me up. Anyhow…I still think they are a bit spooky (in a friendly kind of way) so thought they would make an excellent Halloween garland. The shapes are pretty simple, so very easy to chop out.
