How to make your Emoji Pop Up Cards
These 3D Card Pop Ups are super quick and easy to learn how to make.. however.. the video really shows the PROCESS BEST!! I will grab some stills from the video to help you see the key steps.. but do watch how to make it here!!!
Emoji Pop Up Cards step by step!
Begin by folding in half one direction.
Opening again and folding in half in the other direction.
Your paper should now have a cross folded across it.
Next you need to bring the bottom right corner over to the bottom left. Whilst keeping your index finger on the centre of the squrae… and bring down middle left to the bottom middle point. Creating a triangle that is tucked in.
Open up your sheet (make sure your creases are neat) and cut down half way on your top middle fold.
Now glue your top left corner square onto your top right corner sqaure.
You have created your first pop up fold.
Make 3 more of these.
Then glue 3 sides together and keep the final flap unglued/ open.
Now it is time to have fun decorations. We decided to make our own emojis from colourful paper.
And then add some circular white sheets of paper with our Birthday wishes/ Valentine’s messages.
