I am a strong believer in showing people that your care about them and love them at ANY time of year.. so we are having a 31 Days of Love Bonanza here on Red Ted Art – Valentines Crafts and Valentine’s Cards that you can make any time and put a smile on a friends face! Today we have Carla visiting us from Preschool Powol Packets.
These Pop Up Cards are fun to make for Valentine’s Day, easy to personalize, and a joy to give away! Most children can make them by themselves, though your youngest kiddos may need some help.
You will need construction paper, glue, scissors, and crayons.
First, create your “pop up” picture. We made a heart:
Second, make your pop up stand. Cut a piece of paper about 3/4″ by 4″ long and fold it like an accordion. You want your pop up stand to cover about half the surface area of your pop up picture, so if your picture is particularly big, make your stand bigger.
Third, glue the pop up together by gluing the picture to the stand. Then glue the stand to the card:
Lastly, add a note or any embellishments. You can use stickers, crayons, or any other pieces to personalize it.
Ta da! Fun, pop up cards–invite your children to make some for friends, family, or neighbors! They can even use them for Thank You cards!
